Hope you and yours had an excellent Thanksgiving week… here in the USA we celebrated a time to work less and enjoy family more!
As for my bloggy move… 2 1/2 years ago I decided to move from Blogger to WordPress as my platform for blogging and I just haven’t been happy. I must pay WordPress to blog to compare apples to apples of storage and such… There is also NO LIVE customer service and when you do get a reply it is a stale canned one not a intentional one! So sad as I liked having my own URL but I will gladly return to Blogger at a new handle now… HERE or just type in your own search of https://createdbykathi.blogspot.com/.
My move back to blogger has truly been a long time in the planning so I hope you will follow me over there now 🙂
As for this week though I do have lots to share as we just stayed home 😀
I sewed these 2 quilt blocks on my vintage Singer 319w.
This pattern can be called Sunny Skies by msqc on YouTube or better yet Sunny Lanes by Quilters Cache block tutorial…. I am choosing to call mine Sunny Days! It will take days and days of piecing even though I cut everything out!!! Lol
I had to scooch the needle over to the right just a wee bit to get a very scant quarter inch though! wowser…. just 18 more to go too!!! At least I know the formula on this machine though! I hope to complete 2 a week for right now as I want the hand quilting to be my main focus!
Speaking of hand quilting… I completed a whole row this week 😀
From the left…
To the center…
To the right side…
Then I got to take a nice big roll on my frame and what to my sparkling eyes did I see??!
The top of the quilt!! WOOT WOOT!
So about 1/3 remains to be hand quilted 😀 I am just so happy with this progress as I started this hand quilting journey in early October!!! We are looking at a Christmas finish I do believe !!! Ho Ho Ho! 🎅Linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching Crew! Come see what everyone is up to using their hands and yarn, floss or thread HERE <<<
I saw this appropriate seasonal joke to play on your neighbors for inexpensive… anyone game??? lol!
