Slow Sunday Stitching

 I seem to be on a roll with the Noah’s Journey stitcheries. I’d forgotten how fast these work up. The bears I started a couple of weeks ago are finished. I decided to keep going since I was in the mood to do these and finished up the block with the rhinos. And because I was still on a roll, last night I picked up the block with the zebras and just barely got it started. These will all eventually end up in a quilt that has quite a lot of pieced units in it, so last week I also got a small start on doing that. While rummaging in the Noah’s Journey storage box I found a couple more stitcheries for it that were traced but don’t have the colouring done on them yet. I use prismacolour pencils and then add a fixative solution over the colouring that is supposed to make it permanent. The patterns suggest what colours to use and where, almost like a colour by number. I might get to that in the next week or two. I have the zebras to finish and one more block that is already coloured before I need the last two.

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.
