I had such a lovely day today, this morning we had the worst frost I have ever seen.
The sun is out and the day is warming up. I purchased some lovely pieces of wool some time ago with the thought of doing some hand stitching at night, now that the nights are getting colder I am keen to get started. Here are some pictures of my progress so far....................
I am afraid the colours have not come out so good in the photo, the blue looks a little greyer in the photo of the circles above. I have used a brown linen fabric for the background, I love the look of the linen mixed with the wool. The cotton print fabric I have used for the basket has been a small piece I have had in my stash for a very long time and I have loved it so much I have never been able to part with it. I think it fits perfectly in this project. I am however a little upset with the way some of these wool fabrics are fraying. Does anyone have any tips to help with this ? Well I'm off to enjoy the sunshine.
Happy Stitching Sharon

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
