I did knit a couple of dishrags. They are always easy and mindless. They were a nice change from applique.
I had taken embroidery along but didn't even take it out of the bag. I worked on it before I left for Arizona and since I've returned home. Several years ago I made embroidered pincushions from patchwork loves embroidery by Gail Pan.
It's interesting what we can see in pictures that we don't see in real life. I'm see that the bird doesn't have a beak or an eye. I'll add those today.
I'll be embroidering until the applique border for the Pastor's Attic quilt is ready for applique.
In December 2016, I purchased two more embroidery books, Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery by Gail Pan and Stitches from the Garden by Kathy Schmitz.
I don't know when I'll get around do embroidering any of the projects in the books but I have the books. As you can see, I've had both of them spiral bound too.
One time, on my blog, I mentioned that I have books spiral bound when I want them lay completely flat. Someone asked me if places still do that. Well, I don't know about where you live, but I had these two books spiral bound last December at the Staples store on the northwest side of Goshen.
I used to do a lot of embroidery but applique seems to have taken over my world the last several years. I'm hoping to find a balance between the two skills.
I have a special quilt to show you. My friend Edith just completed this quilt top. It is Stars For a New Day, a Sue Garman pattern. Edith's quilts are always so beautiful. She is wonderful with color selection. The quilt will be long arm quilted.
