So what is next? Several people asked that very question. I'm ready to go with Shores of Hawk Run Hollow but I think I want to finish some stuff first before I add to my WIP pile. I want to work on the Isa V Marquior from last year. I'm half way finished there and I even pulled it out last night and put it in my bag for the train this week (ended up not bringing it though). I even pulled out my HUGE Marquoir ABC Ancien Bleu & Rouge to look at. I'm half way with that one also. But I know there is a counting error on both sides of the border and I'm dreading trying to fix it. I think I need to push on there and not dwell on it too much. I mean it's not like any one I know is going to notice it. And I'm sure I won't even notice it at some point. :-) I have to get going on my six Christmas gifts - I have five of the charts I need in hand and I need to start to gather supplies.
Despite all this stitching talk going on in my head I spent most of my weekend quilting and sewing other things. Here are my first two blocks for the Civil War BoM that I just started. They took up much of my Saturday. When I was finished I started on a few other things but didn't take any photos. I'm working on some quilted hearts, some primitive heart pillows and a primitive doll that I want to use for the CHS apron chart that came out two years or so ago.
I was hoping to finish the chaise lounge stitching but didn't come even a bit close to that. The back of the chair is finished and I should finish the seat top today. Last night the plan was to put this aside for something else but I knew this morning if I took that step I would totally stop work on this because I'm not really enjoying the stitching. And I don't need another WIP so I'm going to push on. So back into my bag it went for this week's train rides.
On Sunday I cut out and started to piece my Rouenneries quilt. I managed to piece all the blocks and even start on some of the strips before I stopped for the day. It doesn't look like much now because there are hardly any of the red fabrics in this photo. But I'm sure I'll be able to finish the top next weekend and then get back to something else in my WIP box.
