I just can't believe how quickly the time is disappearing already this year and it amazed me that it had already been 10 days since my last post.
I have been very busy since then. Firstly, I was able to get the table runner that I showed you last time finished off.
I was very pleased with how it turned out and I can report that the new sewing table made it a lot easier to complete the free motion quilting without there being too much drag and therefore tension on my shoulders. Here is a close up of the quilting.
Since then we have had two more family birthdays and this past weekend we were finally able to get the whole family together which was absolutely lovely. It was a very busy weekend as I also attended an online course via zoom with Cat Rowe of Textile Illustration. We made little textile pictures using free motion embroidery and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
By the end of the day I had almost finished my piece but still had a few stitched details to add. Last night after most of the family had returned home, I finished and framed my picture and I am absolutely delighted with the result.
I can't wait to get started on my next one now! Until next time 😊xx
