Monday

Here is an project that I needed to finish. I had my sewing machine serviced a couple of months ago and the blanket stitch is now working!! I am not great at applique so this was a challenge for me.

Homecoming was this weekend. The football game was sad because we lost horribly. The dance for DS was the next day. I really accomplished a ton. I cleaned up the house and the garden beds. Watch football and tried to relax. Hmm, back on the diet. I gained a couple of pounds.

I did long arm a wall hanging you can see it here.

The wall hanging is cute. Are you using a dark thread for the stitching?

Great job on the quilting of the wall hanging; love the movement on the quilt. Diets aren't so much fun but it does reminds us to eat a few healthy meals. Thanks for reminding me too.

Nice Father Christmas! I'm not that good at applique either but yours looks fine!

Yeah, dieting. I told myself I needed to lose 20 and I gained 5. Why does that happen?

I love the colors in your wall hanging. The Father Christmas is cute. Good for you for trying something challenging, I've tried applique and I get frustrated every time.
