We drove up yesterday to the cabin and I was able to finish two more blocks for the Primitive Gatherings Freebie from last summer. I think I only have two or three more to do and then I can start to put them together. And start on this year's project, which will be coming very soon!
My houses are a little wonky and I really am not very good at sewing a stem stitch so I decided that my flowers would have 3 per stem. I can make fairly decent french knots, and with variegated thread, it's great fun.
This one needs a little work; the roof came out crooked. UGH. I"m sure I'll fix it after I've finished some others. Kind of sick of it now, though. But you can get an idea of how needy my wool applique is! This would have benefited from using a little glue stick to hold it in place but I didn't have it in the car last time.
I'm also continuing on my setting of some of my Triangle Gatherings blocks. I was a bit harried getting packed since we had the kids and I only cut a small piece of the sashing fabric, rather than taking the entire piece. So I don't think I brought enough with me to finish it. Not sure if I'll try to find it in Bend or not. I do have a 2 yd piece sitting in California. GRRRR
It looks a little rumpled because it was packed in my bag to bring up to our cabin.
anyway, I do have other projects to work on so I think I'll go as far as I can with the sashing I brought along...
Tonight we are going to the local baseball game which is made up of college kids. The team is the Bend Elks and it should be great fun. We are also planning to go to the rodeo in Sisters on Saturday.
