A couple of weeks ago, I was told that I won a hand woven tea towel from Susan Harvey! I tell ya, I was shocked (I don't usually win stuff). Here is the link to her blog where she tells the winners! Susan, thank you SO much. This towel is really beautiful.
Then a week or so ago, my cousin (thanks Judee!) sent me a special from Keepsake Quilting. It was for the pre-cut hearts and I ended up ordering TWO (2) sets! I tell ya, I'm a fool for hearts...........I can't wait to applique' these onto some charm squares and make a heart quilt!
I've tried the lighting in front, over the top, and in the sides. It comes out differently every time. So practice will make perfect! Eventually I'll get it all figured out and I'll get good photos. One of the things I'm going to do is go to Ikea because they have rolls of white paper. My box is pretty large, and the poster board doesn't really come forward enough, as is evident in the pics of the towel and the hearts!
I'm working on putting the charm squares together for my next quilt. I'm excited. It's Christmas themed (yeah, I know, a little behind but actually, I'm ahead - of next Christmas!). It's going to be pretty I think.
I finally finished weaving off the fabric I was working on, on the big loom. The lady buying it is supposed to come pick it up tomorrow, and hopefully the ground will be o.k. for them to come and not as slippery as it is today. Lulu (Leclerc Nilus) needs to go - weaving this fabric off just proved it to me all over again - my back has been killing me. I did some of the weaving yesterday, and some of it today. The smaller loom is much easier on my body.
She is all ready to go to her new home! This is going to leave so much room in my craft room now. Maybe I can move the sewing machine back in so everything is together! We'll see.....
So that's it for today.
