For the past week my life was hijacked by a boiler heating system and hot water heater that weren't doing their jobs keeping our house warm. I tried to push through the distraction and attend the quilting retreat with my Material Girls quilting group but I gave up after the third morning of waking up to no heat and changed the quilt retreat into a stay-at-home intense Bucilla kit work session. I could sit at my dining room table which was next to the fireplace...pretty cozy.
I finished this adorable stocking, Candy Express.
I finished the first companion ornament to the stocking...tiny pieces which were a challenge not to lose before they were all attached.
We got our first official snowfall for the season on Saturday. Most of it has melted be we had it for a few days and the dogs loved playing in it.
Eli...he really wanted to sit on the dining room table while I was working on the stocking but that is not allowed. Here is his reaction to my reprimand...Ha!
I have been pecking away at my Bloom quilt.
It is so much easier stitching through the soluble glue edges versus fusible web.
This quilt is from Fourth & Sixth Designs. They have a YouTube video for each block, specifically for construction using a domestic sewing machine and one video for doing all the top stitching on a longarm.
I am obviously doing the longarm version.
I will wash this quilt to get rid of the glue so that will be the final test to see how I like this technique but so far a major thumbs up from me.
