Busy sewing day
Today has been a busy sewing day indeed.
A group of my online friends - May Britt, Nancy, Sigrun, Sølvi and myself - met on Messenger and worked together from 3 pm until about 10 pm, meeting online at 6 pm, 8 pm and 10 pm.
We have chatted and egged each other on, and we all have results to show.
Those saying internet steals sewing time should have sewn with us today!
I have machine quilted around all the blocks on the Snowman Collector quilt, 2 rounds, zig zag-ed the outer edge and cut the edge clean.
I still have one round of machine quilting to do around each block, and the hand quilting around the applique, but since the quilt is coming with me to the local show this weekend, for "show and sew" it does not matter if I have done some of the stages in a strange order ;-)
I will see if I have fabric suitable to add the binding tomorrow morning - if not, I will just work on the hand quilting.
In between I have made a small makeup purse for a gift.
My DD2 is going to a 16th birthday party tomorrow and she ordered a makeup purse in the colours matching the recipient's handball suit.
My DD2 had the layout in mind, and she is happy with the result.
The purse will be given with some money or some makeup - whatever suits the young giver tomorrow after school.
