On Saturday I machine quilted the backing for my dog bed. I used a wool batting and it turned out so nice. I did a simple grid pattern and after I washed it up and dried it on low, the pugs laid right down on it. It really is soft and warm with the wool inside it. I need to quilt the sides and still take care of the top. This is starting to feel like the project that never ends. :-)
On Saturday evening and most of Sunday afternoon (while I watched the BEARS! GO BEARS!) I worked on block 9 of the Village. I'm pretty close to finishing this block up because all I have left do to is fill in some more grass and the letters at the top of the piece. I'm thinking about five to six hours. I hope to finish it during the evenings this week so I can spend the weekend doing my Christmas ornament of the month with my SAL group.
And then on Sunday morning, I wanted to do some sewing but I didn't really feel much like quilting. I did sew a little on a JoAnn Fabrics Block of the Month quilt that I've had sitting around for ever but after an hour or so I wanted to move on. So I looked under my sewing table and found a tote bag that I had cut out at least a year ago. And here it is! The pug fabric is a Lee Jofa called Pugs & Petals - those of you in the UK should recognize the designer. Super expensive - I picked it up on eBay for around $30.00 for an entire meter! What a deal. I need to take better photos - my camera ran out of juice while taking these pictures.
And of course to work on the train this week - or until I can't stand it anymore, is Blackwork Fantasy Garden. I would like to pick up a project from my "Waiting in the Wings" list but I really want to work on the new loose feathers - my threads should be at my house today or tomorrow.
