The sheep are rockin' and rollin' right along. I tried stitching for the Friday Off the Grid Stitch In but I kept getting interrupted and simply gave up. Sometimes you gotta go with the flow. However, that left me one sheep not connected to his legs!
I swear, my favorite parts of this stitch is that fat sheep beside the number five (he's so stinkin' cute) and that silly sun. I had to save the sun for the last thing on that section as my little reward for finishing it!
Deb had some questions...what is the fabric I'm stitching Les Moutons on? It's 32 count Blue Spruce, unknown brand. I bought the fabric at the Silver Needle. The model of this was stitched on a light baby blue, not my style but I wanted the fabric to really contrast with the white sheep.
Deb also wondered how my broken arm was feeling? Much better! I forget it was even injured now. It's been 14 weeks and I have finished therapy but I still have stretching and strength building exercises to do. The doctor said it would be a year before I had full strength and movement back. It was just about six weeks on when the Mystery Quilt started and I had just gotten the go-ahead to use the arm. Wow! I feel like it healed fast.
I finally spent the $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop I won a year ago. Boy, their packaging is nice! I got this sweet layer cake called Fresh Market by Bella BLVD for Riley Blake. This was also in a plastic wrapping but I took it off as it was too shiny for photos. I gots plans for this layer cake! I also got two yardage cuts for another project. A green stripe and a green dot. More to come on both of those!
I found a project I really wanted to do but it is an appliqué design and I've never done that. The closest is the Dresden Plate quilt I've been (not) working on. I'm not one to shy away from something new so I've been researching and gathering supplies. I still need to either buy or make myself a pressing pad I can use sitting down. The stripe and dot fabric above is part of the planned appliqué project, along with some fabrics from my stash.
