I got a lot done yesterday! A lot of cleaning!!!!! And some sewing too.
Over the weekend, when we went on our little day trip to VA, I bought a thimble! This is my first collectors thimble. I have an old antique typeset drawer that I think I will put these in. I do plan on collecting them, but I will have to wait until I get a few more before I get the old typeset drawer out. Somehow I think it would look a little odd with only one thimble in it! :)
This is a photo of a quilt that I did a while back. I already posted about it on here, but I snapped this photo of it yesterday while it was hanging on the clothesline. This is right at the edge of dark, that is why the colors do not show up real well. I forgot the name of the block at the moment but it is one of my favorite scrap quilts.
During my breaks of cleaning smoke crud, I got my red and white quilt cut out! Here are the red strips. A total of 46--1 1/2 in WOF strips! Last night after supper I got all of the white cut out and started sewing my strips together this morning. The pressing is what I hate!
I quilted a few rows on the quilt that I have on the frame too! This is just a lap size quilt, I would have had it done yesterday if I hadn't been cleaning so much. I tried to take a photo of the quilting but you can't really tell much about it here. Oh and in the photo there looks like there is a spot on the white fabric, that is just the light from my machine. :)
I hope to have this one finished sometime today and maybe load another one on the frame.
Well I had better go and get back to sewing some strips together...
