We are having a great time at the river this week and that fun starts with this pretty girl. Ouiser (nicknamed Weesie) is a 5 month old lab and she's mostly delightful and sometimes a typical puppy demon seed. She's really sweet and actually pretty well behaved but she gets a little wild (in a fun way) in the evenings. I'm having a great time with her.
But I'm sewing a lot and am making great progress on the postcards. I decided to outline the holly leaves with Razzle Dazzle thread. It's tedious and takes about 10 minutes for each card. That's about 5 hours to stitch the leaves on all 30 cards. I didn't bring any red metallic thread so I'll stitch the berries when I get home. I finished all of the holly leaves last night after dinner. Today I'll start the birds. They should be easier with simple straight stitching.
Kim got the binding sewn on her quilt and we got it in the mail yesterday too. Her friend should have it by Saturday to use when she gets her chemo treatments. I think she will love it.
Anne is going to make the Tamarack Jacket that is apparently very popular on Instagram. She is getting her fabrics quilted and ready to cut the pieces. I'm anxious to see how the jacket turns out because it's one that I might be interested in making. If we were at my house with the longarm the fabric would be quilted already!
Today it's more sewing and more playing with Weesie. One day we will visit the local quilt shop and a nice art gallery.

I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
