First off, a progress report on Charley Harper. I am nearly there (although of course that probably means two weeks off, or four, given the time of year). He is out of the hoop, and I am working on all the bits right around the edges - my least favourite part of quilting. After that, the binding, another job I'm not so keen on, but I am keen to see him finished, so I am trying just to relax and keep stitching.
The next piece of denim is started too. Machine stitched together again this time. It began life like this:
but this time I have added a couple of little scraps of colour:
and started stitching:
As we rush headlong towards Christmas stitching time is diminishing, but I have a day of sitting around in a hospital on Wednesday (not for me; I'm the moral support), so am hoping that this at least will get some attention this week. Otherwise I have a lorry load of food to organise before large children descend, plus all the stuff everyone reading probably has to cover too, but I have my Christmas cds out now, plenty of tinsel and I'm comfortably in my Christmas groove.
