I seam to be going through a patch where I start a project and something else takes priority. Does anyone else have this issue?
At the moment I have three projects on the go! One of which is still a pile of fabric I need to turn into a present for someone whose birthday it was last week! Thankfully I won't be seeing them for a couple of weeks so I hope I will have the time!
I started making a dress for Sofia but that has been sidelined by a birthday present for someone who's birthday it is on Saturday! In this case I will be seeing them!
I've got it to the quilting stage but after a very unsuccessful attempt at quilting it with invisible thread and an hour spent unpicking it. I'm at a quandary as to how to quilt it. It is for my uncle and he is what I would class as an old fashioned cumbrian farmer so I'm not sure how it will go down. I'm thinking along the lines of quilting straight lines 1/8 inch either side of the ditch. I'm not happy enough with my free motion to try that so suggestions are welcome.
It is a runner for the top of his drawers. I was stuck with my phone for taking pictures so please excuse the quality. The second picture shows the colours more accuratly.
I picked up this variegated thread at a sale last month, the colour is slightly brighter than the picture shows and I think it is the tread I'm going to use to quilt with.
