Busy, busy, busy.....
#1: Been busy working on the shawl that I shared with you a short time ago. It's called "Flirty".
Off the needles.
Wrapping yarn to prep for fringe.
Fringe is made.
Soaking prior to blocking.
On the blocking wires and drying.
Pulled the wires.
Just finished applying the fringe.
I'd model it, but I am in my PJs and that wouldn't show how pretty this shawl has turned out.
#2: I was busy for a couple of days prepping for giving my first Beginner's Class for new owners of APQS machines. After stressing over that for a few days, I calmly conducted the class and think I did an OK job on it .
#3: I put in for retirement at work . Yikes!!! Life is going to change around here for me. I will have more time to quilt!! Can't complain about that, but then on the other hand, I think I will miss my regular routine that I have had for over 20 years. Of course I say that now. I will probably change my mind quickly on that one. :D
#4: Have the extra fabric that I need to complete the cutting out of my first quilt retreat coming up later this month. So, that is my next project to get completed. So, hopefully, I will have more quilty things to share very soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
