I missed our Totally Useless Stitch A Long yesterday because I spend most Mondays at my parent's house. This gives my dad a chance to mow the lawn or run errands without leaving my mother alone. My sister goes on Saturdays and my daughter on Thursdays. I wish we lived closer so I could go every day. But it was the New Moon and I have ORTs to share!
All these Christmas ornaments are really filling up my ORT jar! I am having to pack them down.
See? Such a full jar! I have one completed ornament and another started. I'll get you all the design info when I get them finished.
Lots of sewing/quilting/finishing ORTs in my leaf bowl too. This is a sneak peek at the quilt I've been working on. Working on this has slowed down my ornament stitching but as long as I'm creating I'm happy!
A day trip on Saturday, antique mall shopping, netted me some quilting book stash! The book on top, Scrap Quilts has a lovely pattern to make a quilt called Cathedral Window, I'm dying to try. It doesn't have batting or backing as the blocks you make create it all at once. A king size quilt calls for 35 yards of backing fabric. 35! Those of you that don't quilt...that is an astronomical amount of fabric! Oh, but the construction of the quilt is amazing and I'm longing to give it a go!
Does anything have you stirred up to give it a go right now?
Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your April TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.
