It's been really nice to get back to my sewing machine. I've put together three charity cot quilt tops using up some leftover RR blocks, and also added the borders and finishing touches to the seaside wallhanging. I still haven't put together my new quilting frame, but when I do I will practice quilting on the charity cot quilt tops before tackling some of my backlog of tops. I've also finished knitting the main pieces for the baby cardigan - I took it on holiday with me and did a lot of knitting when I was sitting around in the air conditioned hotel room in Sisters - but I've run out of yarn before I've knit the ribbing bands, so I need to go back to the store and get another ball.
Tomorrow is my Saturday Sewing Club - I am trying to decide what project to take along. I think it will either be the Mystery Quilt blocks from Sisters, or a Moda tin quilt kit that I've had for a while for a pieced star. When I got back from the holiday, the fabric I had ordered from Hancock's for the border to go around the Lone Star (the one where I replaced the background in blue) had arrived, but I'm not sure I like it. It looks a lot paler than I was expecting, I was expecting it to read more as 'red'. What do you think??
