I'm up to date on Gratitude. Even have all the squares cut for the centers. The red strip on the left is the fabric I'm using for the sashing blocks. Still looks a little dark in the picture, but is a tiny bit lighter - enough that you can see the print anyway!
I spent a little bit of time on my applique project, but not much. Tomorrow I'll be working on that during the Bears game and more. I haven't done any handquilting this week because I strained/sprained my underneath finger, so I'm trying to not use it and let it rest, but not having much success. Wrapped the finger today, which helped some -- we'll see.
I finished the punchneedle project yesterday and ironed Heat and Bond lite on the back to hold the stitches. I am going to frame this one and give as a gift this Christmas. I do like making them -- doesn't take much effort and very little thought -- my kind of project! Plus it's a good fill-in project when you don't feel like quilting or piecing, or appliqueing!
1. Had a late breakfast and no lunch, so early dinner of chili and cornbread -- it's a cold, damp day outside.
2. Time spent on quilt projects.
