Not much piecing going on around here this week, but I have done quite a bit of hand stitching. I have started a new Alabama Chanin piece: fabric cut and stenciled so now I am back-stitching around the shapes. The fabric is an organic wool jersey, which I hope is going to be nice and warm, especially as it is a double layer. It may not be finished in time for this winter, but at least I'll be ready come autumn.
I have also been quilting Quiet Quilt. It felt like I was making good progess but then I made a big mistake. I realised that since the design is basically 9x9 9-patch blocks I could work out exactly how much of the quilt was done at any given point. That will probably be fine once I'm halfway through, but when you still have 650-odd little units to do it's not so encouraging. I have done 7 9-patches this week, which leaves me 74 (or 666 of the little squares) still to do.
On the bright side, I am happy with how the orange-y thread is working.
