A few things done..

I had some production the last week or so...
I finished hand quilting another block!
I LOVE this quilt!
The binding is done on my churn dash...
I tackled the Kitchener stitch again and got my toes all closed up on two pairs of socks!
(Now that was just PURE PROCRASTINATING that I didn't do these sooner!)
Then I finished piecing the giant apple core quilt. It will make a beautiful wedding gift.
I normally quilt my own quilt tops but I have a few that need to be done so I think this and a couple others will be gong to the longarmer to get finished!
But before this one goes, I decided to stay stitch the entire outside edge. It was a lot of curves and I didn't want them distorted.
Now back to hand quilting!
Happy Stitching!

Too many projects!

Yes, I have 'Too Many Project Syndrome' ! How does it start? Maybe it's that I have too much stuff? Maybe it's that I have too many things I really WANT to make? Maybe it's that I am not at all organized anymore?
So what I have been working on?
My first block is finished (for now). I still have the inside of the basket to do but I am undecided. I'll have to spend some time sketching! I am so happy with it so far.
In the meantime I have started quilting the second block!
I finished machine quilting this churn dash! I did a straight grid in each direction. It is heavily quilted - just 1" apart.  Now I am just sewing down the binding.
 I know exactly where it is about 10 months! I have the wall all picked out in my sewing room (or should I say future sewing room)
I have been sewing a few curves on my giant apple core quilt! Nice easy still takes a bit of time and extra pinning but worth it.
And I am thinking it will make a perfect wedding gift!
My crochet hearts are all done. I still have to buy the rest of the things I need to finish this gift!
And through all this I am thinking I need an easy no thinking project when the apple core is finished so I am going to start this kit I bought quite a while ago.
Back to my binding!
Happy Stitching!
