The second hand sewing project was to blanket stitch the applique on these basket blocks. I completed 3 and started on the fourth.
I was able to find only 5 hours this week to sit with needle and thread and sew... but I am happy with what I accomplished so far.
Here is a picture of my well-used chair... next to it is my hand-quilting-in-progress (Rosewood Cottage) quilt and hoop. I didn't get to work on this project as I can't find my hand quilting thread! It will have to wait until next week when I'll have time to get to town and find some.
Here are just a couple pictures of some of the quilting I have done on it in the past. Mostly outline stitching and cross hatching. I got braver as I went along and on the pinwheel block I did a heart shaped kind of thing.
That's it for last week... I'll report back next week on this week's tasks.
