Needlework Tuesday - A concerted effort at progress
Not sure what to do for the machine quilting and am checking several sites/books. I am planning to quilt it as I assemble it strip by strip. I like this one by Lori at the Inbox Jaunt. As she says, it would be a good lead in to quilting feathers.
For those of you who partake in the annual quilt shop hops, it's that time again. One is a block hop with 14 shops participating. I have six of the kits (free kit to make an 8 inch block) and am probably going to leave it at that. The colours are earthy and appeal to me, though I don't really see myself making the full project, some blocks don't speak to me, and several shops are just too far away. I have a few more patterns for the Row by Row Experience. I really like the house and door motifs that many of the shops are featuring. I can imagine myself making a quilt using a lot of these motifs. (wait a minute, I don't need to start any new projects, i have far too many on the go).
I have friends on both sides when it comes to partaking in shop hops. Some go on everyone they hear about, and others can't see the appeal. They shop where and when they want. I am curious whether you participate in shop hops and what your shops do to entice you visit?
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your current post.
