It's chilly outside and there some rain/snow showers...so is winter here?
This isn't going to be a big snowstorm today.
Just a little mix with perhaps an inch or so with slippery roads this evening.
That's what the weatherman is saying.
This week I didn't do a lot of sewing, I did sew everyday but not marathon sewing. Minor small stuff.
I have an awful stiff neck, which now I am realizing is a really stiff shoulder that is causing a lot of pain.
Cannot imaging what I did to aggravate it. So annoying.
I am participating in the February Small Quilt Challenge with Kathleen Tracy again this month.
Another quilt from her book Prairie Children and their Quilts.
On schedule so far. Last night while waiting for the husband to bring home pizza I pieced all the squares and after pizza put the rows together.
In the book it is the Broken Dishes Quilt but she encourages you to expand and offered an alternative red and white option with an embroidered heart in the center. I didn't want to do the heart because I will keep this out all year long. Loving the red and white.
I hit up my stash of 30's prints and added some shirting scraps and a red/white star scrap for this.
My challenge now is to decide on the borders.
The red inner border is a go but I am thinking of a few others from my stash for the outer.
Decisions...decisions...what's a girl to do?
Top/bottom/left/right? Not sure.
Or perhaps this other choice...
I think I have narrowed it down to the bottom and the "other choice" seen above...
What do you think?
Have a great Saturday. I am off to work and then a night in with my sewing machine.
Remember, take time to sew...I do.
