OUCH


Chooky has been out cracking the whip!!!!!!!!! I have been a very slack participant. Life has been very topsy turvy the last few months.

I have been slowly working on my Tis a Season which I have put into overdrive now as the deadline is LOOMING.

I have sewn the first two rows together. Have finally finished stitching all of the blocks although I ran out of cotton on the last 2 blocks and couldn't get the DMC stranded skein it was sold out and who knows when they will get more in so substituted with a Pearl 8 in the same colour number. It is just a little thicker but I don't think you can really notice. So now I have to sew the rest of the blocks together and add the borders then layer it ready for quilting. Not sure if I will completely make the deadline but will come close.

Have fun ladies. Bye for now from Liz

I used pearl 8 for mine. I love it!

Good luck with the borders and the quilting!! I used a finer cotton quilting thread. I usually use Perle 8 though.
