Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Friday 22 July 2011

Vacation's over

I'm back to work tomorrow, after a lovely 12 days off, with lots of fun stuff finished and started. I made a mental list of what I wanted to do these past 5 days, and got all it it done, or at least started. I've gotten a start at finishing up July's UFO. The seams of all the arcs are now turned under, ready to be appliqued to the background triangle, and one of the triangles is in the process of being added.

I got a start at the Rose Log Cabin quilt, and am in the process of doing some of the cream and light green squares. They are quite time intensive, with the triangles that have to be added to the opposite corners, and then trimmed. (I am not keeping the trimmings.)
The pantograph design for the quilting design for the Bear Tracks quilt is finished, using actual bear tracks.
I would really like to get that quilt loaded, and started before the end of today. Then I can do a little on it each day before going in to work. I find that if I can get something quilty done before going to work, I have a much better shift. However, before I can even get close to loading that quilt, I have to do something about cleaning up the mess currently on the long arm.
Yikes, It looks worse in the picture than it actually is. At least, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. LOL. I have the habit of using it as an extra flat surface when I'm working on stuff, since the aren't a lot of flat surfaces in that room, aside from my sewing table, and cutting table, and desk top table and......
OK, OK, I admit it, if there is a flat surface, I'll manage to cover it with stuff. So, before I do anything else, I'd better get at cleaning up that space. The hard part is finding someplace else to put it all. Oh well, I've put it off as long as I can. Time to get up and moving.


  1. The DWR quilt top looks so pretty. Did you design and draw the bear tracks pantograph yourself?

  2. I sure would like a copy of that bears track panto. Any chance you will make and sell one to me?


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
