Last Friday I spent most of the day sewing with my new group. I was very unorganised and forgot a few important things....like thread for my machine!
Luckily Lisa came to the rescue and I was able to keep piecing. I sewed half of the Dresden's together, but needed to cut some more wedges before I could finish them. I did finish 11 of them that night at camp. The next job is to find a background fabric...although the cream carpet looks better than I expected!
August's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge colour is Indigo! Yep I have stitched all my dark blue/purple scraps up already. You can do grey and black as a substitute. I am still thinking about that...black is not my thing! I have made a few more red blocks, as I did not achieve as many as I had hoped in August.
My hand stitching project for the last month or so has been these pears. I finished all the pears and stems this week, now starting on the leaves - one is done, the rest are just pinned. I need another chrome green, but alas I didn't find any at the quilt show.
Happy quilting Sue.
