Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE




Now that we are experiencing the slightly cooler temperatures of Autumn, the Liberty Bloomsbury has been pulled out  again and the hand quilting has re-commenced.  There is something about snuggling under a quilt as you are working on it. It does take a little longer to do some times, thanks to my helper, who thinks the needle and thread are great toys.  I'll be having to lock myself away to quilt soon.    I have three more Dresden blocks to hand quilt and am contemplating whether to hand quilt the Liberty borders too, nothing like making more work for myself.  I can't wait to have this quilt on my bed, but I think it will have to be when Meeka is a little older and doesn't attack toes and knees through the bed clothes (of course, I could just shut the bedroom door at night).

So what have you been working on over the past few days.  Whatever you're sewing or stitching, link it up here.  Just follow these guidelines:
  1. Link up from any post from the past week that features something you have been sewing or stitching,
  2. Somewhere in your post, please link to this post.
  3. Please comment on a couple of the other Sew,Stitch, Snap, Share links - its fun to receive comments from new people, and we are trying to encourage people to read blogs and keep blogging too.

  11. Handquilting just really finishes off this style of quilt perfectly. Although sometimes it's hard to know when to stop. Remember you can always add more later if you decide it really needs it.
