I have been quite busy since my last blog post. I finished my wolves cross stitch picture and framed it. It's in my youngest son's room on his messy dresser now. I think it turned out quite nice.
I purchased a new quilt book. This will be one of my winter projects after I finish the Gypsy Wife quilt. It has a lot of paper piecing which I have only done a little bit.
This and the blocks following are for the Gypsy Wife quilt. I am making steady progress.
I got a new sewing machine!! For whatever reason, the picture won't show up here but it is a fancy Janome 3160 QDC which means it is computerized. I LOVE IT!! It is so much better than my Hancock Fabrics low end Janome. It ties off and cuts the thread and threads the needle.
First day I got the new machine, LilG was playing around with it and made a little pillow for our cat Fred. It is really easy to use.
On Thanksgiving, since I have been struggling with my mental health I took the day off and just spent the day cutting strips for the Gypsy Wife quilt. SIXTY strips!! It took me all day since they were two different widths.
I'm, as usual, working on a cross-stitch project. A cheesy farmer Santa. I've wanted to make this guy for years but haven't because I didn't have the dark blue fabric for the background. Plus, there are huge blocks of color like white and gray and blue which I are really boring to stitch but I'm sucking it up and doing it this year. It will look cute on my wall. I should have it done in the next week or so.
