Thank yous to those of you who left several creative ideas for making my hollow core door/tabletop smooth for free-motion machine quilting. (See the previous blog post.) I haven't done anything to fix that problem yet, but when I do, I will be sure to let you know.
This past week I've been embroidering. I'm slowly working my way through the Snowmen A to Zzzz alphabet embroidery. After beginning the project by randomly stitching whatever alphabet letter I thought was the cutest, I decided to be more methodical.
|I'm stitching with DMC floss, and the stem stitch.|
Finishing the letter "C" is all I've managed to do while I've been here in Kansas helping our daughter who's pregnant and has a separated pelvis. While here, my sewing has been limited to making curtains for new French doors into our SIL's home office, and hemming fabric for a tablecloth. For at least several weeks, I expect handwork will be the extent of my personal sewing. Our grandson is still expected to arrive by a scheduled c-section on Monday, November 8, but today the doc says he has a 50/50 chance of arriving early.
For those of you who like Halloween - and I am admittedly one who does not - here's an appropriate knock-knock joke from Kady L. at "Take a Mom's Word for It."
Phillip my bag with candy!
