Slow Stitching was a success as I finished the little sewing ornaments this week. Participating with this group has really helped me to stay motivated to make progress each week. Sometimes it wasn’t much, but every week had some progress.
They looked a bit unfinished when I got them all stuffed and closed this week.
I had a lot of red yarn left from the kit. The kit wanted to have me twist the yarns into cording and glue it around the ornaments mounted on cardboard. Since I decided to stuff them instead, I thought that would do. But, I decided that adding the yarn by couching it in the seam ditch would help to make them look a bit more finished.
So I did that to see what it would look like.
This made them look more finished. I did them all. Here they are, on the tree!
Back to quilting, the past two days have been dedicated to working on the Christmas Trip Around the World.
Quilting is done, and binding was sewed on.
Today I’ll be slow stitching the binding to the back. I’ll show the finished quilt in a few days.
The drawings for the Holiday Fabric and the Crewel Yule book will be later this evening. Winners will be emailed, and I’ll let you know who won tomorrow. Gotta go, football game is coming on soon!
