Yesterday, I finished the machine quilting on the little chickadee hanging. I'm auditioning a sample binding which I think I will go with.
I didn't feel like putting it on last night--too fiddly when I'm tired, so I turned to my birch tree to see how I would proceed there. I got the idea that I might like to do crazy patches which represent the fall birch forest colors, and put them around the narrow batik border. I did one last night and laid it on the wall; however, I will need to do more before I can decide if it they will work.
We've had a few inches of snow over night which may turn to rain later; I hope not because we've already got a layer of ice underneath this fresh snow. I watched the chickadees and gold finches while I ate breakfast, but they had disappeared by the time I got the camera out.
School was cancelled as well, but it doesn't seem bad and it is currently not snowing, so I plan to go to my usual Wednesday swim this morning at the spa which is only a few minutes from here.
I'm linking to the Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday. go check out the lovely variety of stitching and quilting blogs.
