I was in my workroom the other day and all those unfinished projects just seemed to suddenly want to be finished. The first one I picked up was the pieced, appliqued and embroidered bird quilt wall hanging that I started I have no idea how long ago. I have been working on it since the last post and I am proud to say "It is now an FO!"
Another project that is now taking up the kitchen
table is another clock. This one is a little more difficult that the Banjo Clock. This is called the Kingston Regulator Wall Clock. DH is now in the process of wishing glue would dry faster.. ;O)
I've never been much of a quilter, but have decided that there's no time like the present to learn. So.. this is the first pieced block I have done that has points.. Lo and behold, I found that it isn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. However, I have decided to spend some time finished all (or at least most) of the projects that have been sitting and waiting patiently for me to return to them. So I decided to make this block into a pin cushion. I have never had a pincushion stuffed with wool before but I have read that wool pincushions will keep your pins from rusting. I used some wool I have that has more grass bits and twigs in it that I like to spin with and stuffed it fairly tightly. Having used poly stuffing for everything I have ever made, I found the wool would go into the corners and there were no lumps... it is so soft to the touch and easy to use... Love it...
