November seemed successful to me.
Finished my tessellated heart which has been a WIP for way too long, I continuously wonder why I do that to myself! A top is almost finished and then it sits there, aka: percolates as I wonder how I'll finish it. With this I decided to just meander it while I did my asthma treatments in the sewing room. Surprisingly, it didn't take long. Then I did the next step....and then the next.
While making the piping I inadvertently sewed one strip of grunge red fabric right side out and then the other needed strip was sewn with the wrong side out. Calling it a happy accident because I ripped out the correctly sewn one and did 2 wrong so I could get the look I was looking for. Click oon the picture to get a closer look of the piping. It's barely visible here.
Finished with label. Hand sewn while in Boston waiting for another last minute biopsy needed 2 days before Thanksgiving.
Another wool finish is a class I took while at my quilt retreat last month. It's totally finished and just in time to put away. My son and husband think it looks more like a llama than a deer but what do those hunters know anyway!? LOL
|She's setting around here at this step.|
Even then, Tufts is great to work with. The phone call came on Monday morning, the 19th and being just before our Thanksgiving, I quickly asked, "how about tomorrow for the needed heart biopsy" as I didn't need to worry wonder and knew DH didn't need the added stress either. Luckily they had an opening and we left within the hour to get to Boston. That's finishing laundry, booking a hotel, vacuuming the floors - uh-humm... okay pushing roomba's button then packing. Oh and calling his chiropractor to change his appointment as we had to leave immediately. Luckily there too, they cancelled his appointment that was suppose to be in half an hour and said whenever we got there, they'd work him him immediately.
Would you believe the chiropractor even tried to find last minute lodging for us too? He is such a great person! DH told him I already procured lodging and I was returning the cans at the redemption center and currently at the bank for $$ while he was there. Sometimes things just fall into perspective with many blessings and a little luck.
While waiting on Biopsy day, my daughter sent me a text and said she'd bring 2 pies and supply quite a few of the side dishes to help out for our dinner. Sounded great to my ears! (And they were delicious too. )
Since her Birthday was on the Holiday we celebrated with those pies, cake, Austrian tea cake and ice cream after a full Thanksgiving feast. Played games, vegged in front of the TV and just hung out.
Thankfully we rec'd word the night before Thanksgiving his Biopsy was ZERO! Yeah!!
Much to be grateful for.
Also back from the Framers was this:
I absolutely love the finish Michael's store offered locally.
The mat, frame and workmanship was perfect for what I had visualized.
Nancy's Needle "Autumn Medley" in the called for threads and canvas. The only personal-ization I did was in the diamond squares, (the smallest squares showing in the top and bottom rows).
love, Love LOVE it! smiles and giggling!
That is #3 Totally finished UFOs and a new kitted project in November! Yippee!
