When there is heavy fog, everything drips. If we're lucky the sun will come out briefly in the afternoon, like a big smile. I usually have to force myself to do the yard work when it's like this. Not because it's really cold, but because it's so damp and depressing outside. It's much more pleasant inside, sewing in front of the fire.
I'm appliqueing my tulips onto their blocks. It's been a long time since I appliqued anything, and I'm really enjoying it. I have a quilting friend who taught me the back basting method (she does beautiful work), and always recommended using silk thread. You need to get some. Your stitches will disappear into the fabric like magic.
here, (she made so many cute ones!) and it's pretty quick to make. One of those objects that for me, is totally useless, but I still wanted one.
This week I'm also trying to tame the beast that lives under my sewing table....
Then again, I might just take it out back and shoot it.
