A Quiet Sunday Afternoon


It seems the winter weather has finally found us. I stayed in today and worked on a few projects while sitting on the couch. Due to the cold temperatures moving in, I started a knitting project. I couldn't resist this yarn. I bought it the Mancuso Quilt show this past summer. It's a fingering weight yarn whose color is jewel box. Isn't is so pretty?? I'm going to make a shawl. I could have made socks but I want this gorgeous yarn to be seen!


I'm also doing a little applique for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. I have all my stems ready. I use freezer paper to prepare my applique pieces. The leaves are all ready also but I have yet to choose the flower fabrics. I'll work on the greens first. 

I also worked on a little free motion quilting but didn't get very far. I think I really just wanted to sit on the couch and rest. My husband has a cold so we're sitting here enjoying our afternoon. 

Hope you had a nice weekend! Can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving! Time is flying!

Slab Runner Quilted

Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
