WIP Boxing Day

I hope everyone had a happy Christmas and can continue that Christmas joy into the new year and beyond.

Mine was quiet just how I like it with a long walk with a friend and a prime rib dinner after.

(I was in bed sleeping by 8:00) woot! Woot! - the perfect day:-)

 

So today - Still working my Nepal quilt

This past week I worked on the hillside. It went from this

 

To this

 

Then this

 

And here is where I am now. I added single crochet yarn to the green grass areas and started sewing them down to the top of the green areas, then realized it looked better on the bottom :-/

Not sure if it's worth ripping out to have them all the same or not sure I even can. It's sewn on by machine very securely with backtracking etc. so probablly will leave it. What do you think? Should I channel my inner anal perfectionist tendencies that barely exist or just let the yarns lie where they may?

A quiet Moment between friends (this is a pic of one already made and sold)

It's going on the design wall for a few days to ponder over while I work on a quiet moment between friends that a friend requested. Perfect timing since I need to walk away from Nepal and go to the mountains with the dogs.

 

Have gotten this far and will play more today.

A fun quilt to make ;-)

Happy Sewing Boxing Day!

  1. I am amazed at how the depth of the Nepal piece comes out as the steps progress! It will be amazing when you are finished.

    I would not rip anything. I had to go back and study it to see what you were talking about. I did not immediately see the "incorrect" part, and even so, it still works beautifully.

    Congrats on the sale of your piece! If is fun! I need to do another of your pieces with the moon, so I can do that quilting! It is so intriguing. And it looks like a basset sitting with Abbey! Although I guess now it is Zu Zu Petal.

    You are so creative! I just love your work!

  2. Oh, I see what you mean! But it isn't noticable at all. The yarns are gorgeous btw! I looked at your progress photos, and noticed how the edges of the steos are a different color in a later stage. Did you paint them to be warmer? Anyway, it looks fantastic, I would not worry about them for a second!
    Your doggie quilt looks absolutely gorgeous and adorable at the same time!
    Your quiltz always amaze me, and your fabrics look really yummy! Do you dye them yourself? I think that's enough questions for now, today is MY sew day! :) catch you on twitter! :))
