A Finish Almost!

Happy Saturday all! Yesterday I finally got to my machine after stitching all the centres on to my Dresdens.
What a lesson in accepting I cannot measure or estimate yardage...
I thought I had chosen so carefully!!! But not so! Whilst I have been true to using only French General Fabics, there is a little 'ring in' that is not from the Rouenneries Deux range but still from the FG range. I think it looks fine now, even though a little spack attack was my initial reaction folks.... and hey one can't be good at everything.
The top is now together and just waiting for the applique to be created and stitched on.
Mr R. remarked that it will be fine to keep us warm in the camper!!!! Ahhh! Nope! I don't think so!!! He did think he was saying all the right things...
While I was on the sewing down little circles kick I finished off the baby Dresdens too. I did iron it!
Because I had been so diligent tied to the machine for so long I allowed myself some playtime with "Lucy"
and finished another block.
I am trying to baste some background hexies as I go so that I can begin joining some together but the lure of making the blocks is very enticing.
Well family duties await for myself and Mr R. and then some relaxation I hope.
I wish you all a lovely weekend and please... be very kind to one another as you just do not know what someone else may be going through or what burdens they are carrying....make the load a little lighter...
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  26. I love dresdens and think your top came out so pretty! Soon I'll be back home among my Lucy blocks and supplies and am looking forward to switching gears! For handwork this winter, I've been learning to crochet inbetween a couple of stitcheries.
    Have a nice weekend!
