Mr. Wonderful and I decided to make a quick trip home to visit my parents this weekend. Since he did all the driving, I enjoyed lots of hand stitching time on the way here!
Before I left, I unearthed yet another UFO. Here it is:
These bits all came from a charm pack but I didn’t have a great plan when I started and couldn’t figure out where to go from here with the limited pieces I had. I realized that with some ripping and rearranging, I could use every piece and end up with a table runner.
As soon as I finished adding the last piece, I wished I had done it differently. I should have had all the light portions of the tumbling blocks pointing outward. It would have looked so much better. Now I need to decide if I rip some more or leave it as is. I hate to throw it back n the UFO bin but I am not sure I like it enough as is to finish it. Ugh.
I also finished the second mitten of the pair that was suppose to be done for a Christmas gift.
I cut some more hexies for my Hexie quilt before I left and got the seams marked as well.
We drove part of the way here on Thursday. Here was the sunrise as we drove over the Mackinaw Bridge on Friday morning.
PS I so appreciate all your lovely comments and read each and very one, but I find it difficult to respond while I am away rom my desktop computer. Thanks for your understanding.
