Ready to quilt and embellish


Well, Thanksgiving is over and now starts the big shopping weekend so hopefully that will bring my Antique Shoppe some well needed business. I have decorated the windows and the interior and will start the Christmas music today to motivate people.

I finished the border on the Purple Mountain quilt. I have had a change in plan and decided to do more embellishing in this one. Therefore I eliminated the hay in the foreground and may or may not add them back in depending on how the embellishing and quilting affects the piece.

Hopefully I will be able to work after the business weekend is over.

Where did your hay bails go?

I have decided to leave them off until I embellish and quilt it. It may not need them after that. I also have found a new technique on Thread Painting, so may do the bales all out of thread.

That is such a good idea.. I love the idea of doing the bales out of thread instead. I think you can get the right texture by doing that. Love your blog!

Thank you Molly. Keep watching to see how this goes.
