This morning I had a nine o'clock appointment at the hospital to get a 24 hour blood pressure cuff. It is not too annoying, but I expect it might be to-night when it goes every hour throughout the night. During the day it is every half hour, but not too intrusive. Then, I visited a couple of friends who are doing some sewing together. I helped arrange a quilt on a design wall (don't you love that?) and got some feed back on my robin piece.
After lunch with my hubby, --thanks, Wendy, for the cinnamon buns, we ate them at lunch,-- I started with some free motion stitching on my ice dyed piece. I outlined the tree shapes first in gold silk thread and then started couching some fibers in the front of them.
I looked into ordering a free motion couching foot but discovered it isn't available for my machine, so I couched the yarns down with a zig zag using a regular free motion foot. It's a little more tedious but it works at
Now I have two pieces on the go that I'm not quite sure how I will finish. With the robin piece, I did finish quilting around all the branches and the robin and I got a piece of plastic from my friend so that I can draw some quilting options and audition them.
The sun is calling through my window, I'm going to head out for a walk.
