G had to go in to work today so I had to miss my UFO day. I made the most go it though. This morning I was a little slow to get myself up and moving due to a cortisone adjustment I had to make. No need to go anywhere or do anything though. Eventually I made some muffins and then got to work sandwiching my runner.
After my lunch, I started the free motion quilting working on the snowflakes in the centre. It's sle going because you can't rush it when using the Hollow Shimmer threads.
I'm really pleased with the bottom snowflake. It really makes me happy! Here you can see it in a but more detail.
Here is one half of the runner. I'm thinking of putting feathers in one of the narrow middle sections.
Some of you (you know who you are) may be wondering if I'll get over this snowflake stage. I can say that ever since I made the little heart shown in the last post, I've got a hankering to do more. I see some pink and orange ones in the future.
I picked up a book I had on order from the library yesterday which I must recommend. It's Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny. I've just started it but I'm into it already just as I was with all her other books. She writes good old fashioned mysteries with lovely characters. I'm just going to settle in with it now for a bit.
