We are in a melt down right now. The sun is out and we are supposed to get into the 40's in the next two days. I plan on getting outside to take down the Christmas decorations while it is warmer because I know it will not last.
I just finished my "IT" piece. I have been working on it for the last 2 days. Things were moving along well and I did not want to stop the flow of creativity that I was feeling so I kept at it and put the binding on a few minutes ago. Tonight I will sew on the sleeve on the back and it is finished.
Then I plan on returning to the Gouldian quilt and finish quilting that. I am still unsure about the quilting on the birds so I will start with the leaves and branches and see how that affects the quilt and then decide whether to quilt them heavily or lighter. In photos they do not have much feather texture and are
sort of smooth and silky looking. I am not sure how to get that look without adding too much texture.
