I've been working my way though older projects and I have been thinking about new ones, but I have not started any of them. I'm being good and deserve a gold star.
The table scarf is finished and it is on the table it was intended for. There was a reason for all of that red. The table cloth is red, but so are the drapes in that room. The drapes have touches of the green and even the pink in them, which is where the color scheme came from. It looks pretty good in the dining room.
I've never taken photos of the back of any of the quilting I've done, but the back of this piece looks pretty good to me, so here are a couple of them.
Both of the quilting patterns are from Leah Day's web site. I picked easy designs because I'm a beginner. I've gotten to the point where I can actually do some free motion quilting and not be disgusted with myself once I've finished the project. But I'm still at the point where I need to be careful.
There is a second project at the binding stage but no pictures as yet. Basically I've made a hanging sleeve and I've put the binding strips together, but that is all.
I'm still dealing with energy issues although I'm a lot better. I'm still dealing with using a cane even in the house as well. And that tires me out. So I am hoarding my energy, doing the jobs I need to do and doing the fun things as I can manage them.
The scarf is off the needles. The way the colors changed in this yarn was just weird. It is possible that some of the blue and some of the orange or red is similar, but they really were not exact. The last of the second ball is still attached to the scarf. I need to weave in the ends. And I think I will need to block the scarf. I've never done real blocking, so that ought to be interesting.
Take care all.
