It is time for a Hand Quilt Along update. I am pleased with my progress on my “Mystery of the Salem Quilt Guild” quilt by Crabapple Hill Studios. I work on it in the evenings to relax while watching Netflix with my hubby.
The right half is finished. I love how brilliant the colors look after embroidery. Here is a closer look.
I wonder what those two girls are talking about? Whatever it is, I’m sure it is scandalous!
And what a fun shopping spree these little witches have been on! Can I come along?
I had better not, they might turn me into a frog!
I keep all of my threads wound up on bobbin cards in a box that my mother gave me years and years ago,
It works very well, except that the lid doesn’t lock on, so I have to be very careful to not knock it over. I haven’t had any problems yet, so I must be doing a good job.
I told you about my wonderful standing embroidery hoop last time.
I wonder how I ever embroidered without it? It not only works great for someone with a broken wrist, it also really locks the fabric in tightly.
Broken bones or not, I am going to keep using this hoop!
Now it is time to move on to the food party half of my quilt panel. This food looks like the makings of a fun party. I bet there is a touch of poison in it though….
I doubt I will get this whole food table done before the next update, but I will try to make a dent in it:)
