I have lots of plans for Cherry Red Quilter but I just need time. Firstly, when my husband bought me a new laptop everything but my photos was transfered to the new one and I am still waiting for the photos. Hence i cannot put them on the blog but that will come. In the mean time I will photograph some the the recent projects. This week my two sons have been away on school camp - oh the luxury of the extra time, I have finished a quilt for one of my besties for her Kris Kringle present and I have also all-but-finished an appliqued apron and matching pot holders made from Kaffe Fasset facbric for my Kris Kringle recipient in my Quilt Group.
I have spent tonight sewing the binding on the quilt but oh my aching hands - the joys of arthritus which has made its presence felt just last year. Because the the blased arthritus I am finshing off as many UFO's, particularly any involving hand sewing, as soon as I can - just in case I can't in the future. I won't be starting any new hand work if I can help it.
Current projects include a 1930's hexagon flower quilt, a dresden flower quilt with 1930's dresden flowers to be sewn on Kaffe Fasset's solids and a 6' x 8' quilt called "Chanticleer and Company" which is basically a 28 block quilt - each block a different appliqued chicken - thank goodness I decided to go with iron on applique when I started it about TEN years ago.
Hopefully tomorrow my husband will put all my photos onto a USB and I will finally be able to put them on this computer. Till then, happy sewing blog buddies (yes I know there are none of you yet but I am sure there will be one day and until then I will just talk to myself!)
