It's another lovely morning here today, although it's once again showing up the deficiencies in my photography skills! I thought for once I'd try and get my WIP linky post in early rather than last.
I'm STILL ploughing on with the hand quilting on the raw edge circles quilt. I am beginning to think I wish I'd taken up Charlotte's kind offer of a loaned darning foot so I could machine quilt it, as it's taking forever and my poor needle pushing finger is getting very sore!!
I have to admit, in between pushing the blunt end of the needle into my finger tip, I am loving the effect of the spirals. Last night after doing a few more in front of the telly, I decided to count up how many I'd still got to do.... 34!
Then after I went to bed and couldn't sleep, first I sent an annoyed email to an etsy supplier who is a month late sending out Sew Stitchy panels, then I worked out how many circles there were in total, so how many I had completed. I thought that would make the remaining 34 seem like small fry......
Until I worked out that 9 x 7 = 63 and therefore I've only done 29!!!!!!!! Oh, I could have cried. But, before I do any more, I WILL be investing in a thimble...
Anyway..... am linking up with WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced
(Oh, and this morning I had a reply from that etsy supplier, claiming that Moda were so busy producing another fabric line, they were late sending out the Sew Stitchy panels to everyone. Sorry, but do I look like I came down in the last shower???? I've seen the panels on blogs, and I doubt very much a company like Moda would allow that - with the number of lines they produce they'd never get anything shipped if the production of one stopped the shipment of another! )
