Many thanks to Wendy for inviting us to join her - see who else joined in here
Hard to believe that we are over half way through August! Autumn is just around the corner and so this week I realised it was time to crack on with my Autumn wall hanging. When you last saw it, it looked like this
and was desperately in need of some red berries to bring it to life - which I was dreading doing! So I spent a couple of afternoons adding borders to the piece and plucking up courage to do the berries. Like all these things, in the end, they were no trouble at all once I had worked out how to do them.
And so my task for Friday afternoon was to add a swag of 1/2" hexies to the bottom border of the quilt and layer it up ready for quilting.
The flying geese along the top of the panel are actually migrating cranes which we see a lot of here in the autumn. I plan to do some basic ditch quilting by machine around the border and then hand quilt the applique to add some detail.
In the evening I worked on the applique on my table cloth. The basic vine and leaves are now complete on two sides and the third is nearly done.
In other news I have been working on some secret Christmas stitching and have completed my purple RSC Dresden.
It has been hot here again with just the odd shower to wash the dust off - not enough to soak the ground though which is what we need.
So I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else was working on last night and will be round to visit soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
