WIP - 10-30-2014

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted.  My arm/shoulder is finally easing up somewhat.  2 physio therapy appointments down and 3 more booked :(

This is what I have been working on.

Local BoM - quilt top finished.  Fabrics were of my own choice.  They are all Stonehenge fabrics.  Lovely and luxurious to work with.  Will check if I have enough left over to piece the back if not will have to buy some more.

Made these for a challenge for Stitchmap.  About once a month Shari finds us a free download pattern on the net and uses it as a challenge there is usually a lesson involved in there too.

Have finished my cq blocks from Kathy Shaw's Intermediate class.  Am in the process of binding them which is today's project.

Also been working on a crocheted doily from a vintage pattern.

I have signed up for a BoM starting January at a local quilt shop.  Have also signed up for a 2 day Judy Niemeyer class (taught by a certified teacher not herself) also in January.  Will be signing up for Kathy Shaw's classes hopefully in January as well (she is revamping her intermediate class).

Update on my cq blocks.

These are the 4 blocks I did/am doing for Kathy Shaw's Intermediate Crazy Quilt Class.

Hope to have these framed by the end of the month but that will depend on when I can use my arm without pain.  Started physio therapy yesterday and it hurts more now then it did before.

Here are 3 of my blocks.  The 4th one is still waiting for 2 more seam treatments then some motifs.  Also hope to have it done by the end of the month.

I am thinking of a black frame for this one.

Probably a dark brown frame for this one.

This one will be a Christmas present for my sister in law.  Will put it into a wooden picture frame with no glass.   The rulers are covering his name and birthdate.  I don't like putting personal information anywhere on the internet.

Here is the progress on my silkie block.  Will be adding beads after 2 more seam treatments, a 3d victorian style boot and a sequin parasol.  Those threads hanging down from the silkie are waiting to be couched down into bows.
