I am actually running out of UFO', at least the ones that were easily finished off. It appears that I have finally gotten down to a REAL PROJECT, in capital letters.
I started this project some time prior to January 2019, I picked it up at that time and seems I did one or two things on it and again stashed it away out of sight.
I had the brick mortar completed and the brown twigs complete. They were fused down and I stitched them down around the edges with Rayon 40wt thread. I added the green wisteria vines. They are fused, but do not get sewn down until all the blooms and leaves are on and the back and batting is in place. Sewing them down becomes the quilting of the piece.
I have fused down the first wisteria bloom. As I was working on it I wasn't sure how I felt about it. However, over the last couple of weeks I am coming to the conclusion that if one steps back several feet things look much better. Once everything is quilted down that will add to it as well. I looks somewhat flat now. So proceed forward with more blooms in several different shades of lavender, purple, and blues I think and lots and lots of leaves.
I am approximately half way up my piece now. It has become easier to manage. I still stress a bit over the wisteria blooms, but I think it is coming along well. I wish I had some pink shades of Batik to work with, but sadly all are too bright. I am considering seeing if our only quilt store available in our area has opened up yet. It is just a work in progress at this point.
The pet groomers finally opened in our area. Our little dog Ginger finally got in for a hair cut. She is much happier now since I do not have to brush out her tangles and knots every evening. However, her baby has not left her mouth since we brought her home a couple hours ago, she is not fond of the groomers either. That is her look of complete upset with us, pitiful isn't it? Even the pretty little red scarf they put on her didn't help.
This past week or so we have been enduring having our roof replaced on our home. Our daughter is also suffering the same dilemma. The family that roofs together goes insane together. She snapped this picture this past week of their roof inspector. This little owl was walking up and down the roof checking out all the shingles packages.
