Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
I hope you are safe and warm and buried only in quilts. What a storm some of us have been through! It’s not bad here in my neighborhood, but one doesn’t need to go far from here to either find an other-worldly scape, or to be turned back by driving bans.
What have you been doing to keep busy these past few days? I hope you got to sit at your machine or in your favorite chair for at least a bit of stitching time . I got a wall hanging cut and pieced and have begun the layering and pinning process. It’s a modern take on the old favorite drunkard’s path block. Love it. There are blocks of bright colors in the midst of white sashings. Not sure what color of thread to use in machine quilting it. I recently finished an online machine quilting class taught by Jacquie Gehring and want to use one of her ideas for the stitch pattern.
I also have been getting some knitting of Christmas presents done while I listen to the reports about our weather on the television. Fingerless gloves are going to be given to a few on my gift list.
What have you accomplished? I hope if you were stuck, it was stuck at home!
