I've been under the weather for some days and feeling the need for small arm movements.
A day without needle and thread is not a good day, so I turned to hand quilting.
I would love to have the Watermelon quilt finished before this summer and every thread done is a thread closer to completion :-)
As you see I have worn my pink Clover pencil all down and am now starting to use the blue one.
It looks like the markings wear off with handling, so I am marking only one fan at a time.
The pencil says that the chalk is water soluble, so whatever if left of the markings when I am done with the hand quilting will go off when I wash the quilt. I read somewhere that a good vacuum also will remove markings.
The cold symptoms are wearing off now, and I am happy about that, as I have several things on my to do list.
I think I will try to do some hand quilting every morning, with my cup of tea by my side, like I did when I hand quilted my Dear Jane quilt. It is a good way to start the day. The morning light is good now too.
I love the early hours of the day :-)
