amidst the other projects I've been working on, I've been working on this too
all of the little detail cutting happened while I was on the phone or between cooking chores in the kitchen
and the fusing happened in bits and pieces while I had the iron on for other projects
now I'm ready to start stitching all the little edges
and I've already been thinking about what I want to use as a quilting pattern, and I'm thinking about using words and quotes -- words like "coexist" and quotes like "our children will be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin" -- I'm searching for appropriate material for this stage
the mousie is complete!
he's there on the fantasy quilt on the left just under the turtle
so now I have one block to work on
it goes there on the bottom left side
it's a raccoon -- and I can't help it, I keep hearing a Beatles tune running through my head!
one holly leaf piece quilted and one to go!
the one on the left is all stitched and ready for the binding -- and I'm not sure yet what it will be
some sort of gold metallic would be cool, but I'm pretty sure there's nothing like that here on hand, so it will probably end up being either really dark green or black
and I still need to pull out the dowels to use as hanging rods for these and figure out how I'm finishing those too
this pattern is so much better -- it's amazing!
so one mitten down and 7 to go (although 2 of them will not be from this pattern -- they're baby mitts with no thumbs)
onward, ever onward
