Neither here nor there.
Wow where did the summer go?
Maybe just finish it, and give it to him whether he gets married or not? The symbolism in them is more of a journey than an event (sailing ships, and all) - one can be single for that. Unrelated, but I've been sort of more-or-less engaged for a couple of years, and not real enthusiastic about it, and lately ready to blow the whole thing up.I had started a Baltimore Album quilt with hand applique. I have some of the pieces appliqued on each block and some in small zippered sandwich bags pinned to the background. I cut, turned under and pasted all the pieces. It is supposed to be my son's wedding quilt.
He is 38 now, was married for about 10 months. Now he has a girl friend. i will take it up again if it looks like he will marry again. I almost forgot about it. Sure hurt the fingers to sew, but it was a great project to take on vacation.
How about knitting up a hemp tam for the warmer months?Dang. That is one gorgeous quilt! Love the stitching details.
I am still knitting the merino gator. Serious NM heat (and continuous hot flashes). I'm almost done, but only manage a few rows a day. Would much rather hand stitch 2" squares of cotton cloth together right now.
I still have the Shetland Marie Wallin Fairisle mits kit I haven't even opened. Gorgeous pattern, and she has a lovely tam in that book too, but NOT excited about more wool...maybe some time in late September.
Well right now, stitching up eight-point star patterns is a lot more fun. For small stars, EPP (English paper piecing) is the easiest way to go. A diamond with a two inch side makes up a block that measures over six inches square. I only had a packet of 60 degree, 6 point star diamonds, however the 45 degree angle diamonds for 8 points are easy to draft and cut from 3X5 index cards.How about knitting up a hemp tam for the warmer months?
