The time is going faster than ever. And I have been busy with another craft show at the Harvest Fest that took place this past weekend at the Yamhill Valley Heritage Museum. It is a wonderful facility displaying the history of the area and demonstrating typical methods of harvesting - this weekend anyway. And, it's only about a mile from my house!
In between sewing items to sell, I have worked on this Christmas wall hanging. I basted it, along with several other things, a while ago and have done some quilting on it.
Here's a close up of the quilting on the lower section. I still need to quilt the car, trailer, trees and the "snowballs" under the words. I'm determined to get it finished before Christmas this year. Last year, I gave up on it when we decided that we would spend Christmas in Florida.
Another large project is Bonnie Hunter's Bowdacious quilt that I decided to make for my 9 year old DG (who lives in Florida). I plan to get it finished before early October so I can show it at my guild meeting. In later October, I will be traveling to Florida again and we will celebrate Christmas early while there in Florida, as this year we will be home for Christmas.
Below are the latest block sections that I have been working on. And I just now noticed that the lower right one needs to be fixed! Oops!
Below are all the blocks that I have finished so far. I need 40 of these. I needed 15 more when I took this out last week, and now I have finished 2 and have 2 more almost done. Each completed block has these 4 sections (like the ones above), and has 53 pieces. I had decided to make this quilt after participating in Bonnie Hunter's Virginia Bound workshop in Texas and seeing this quilt that she showed us along with other quilts of hers.
I sorry that I haven't been blogging as much lately. The time just isn't lasting as long lately.
