Today for Fiber Friday, I thought I would get my little
quilts ready so I could do the hand sewing on them.
I love doing hand sewing the best. There is just
something comforting about sitting and doing handwork.
I loved this little quilt and it was a fun little project to do.
Here is some more progress on my rug. It is really getting
big and it is heavy. You know because I have never done
a big rug before, so I had no idea how heavy they get.
I am using the punch needle and I do like it. I was noticing
that when I use a rug hook I use my left hand. When I use
a Amy Oxford Punch Needle I use my right. I wonder why
that is? I also noticed that using a rotary cutter today, I
use my right hand. I am left handed.
This is my counted-cross stitch I have been working
on too. I loved working the letters. I had so much fun.
Someday I will learn to do this over two threads but
I just can't see. I tried linen and I finally gave up and just
did it on this. I was using those clip on magnifiers and
magnifying glass and bright light, and what little I could see to
do, by the time I took the magnifiers off my eyes were crossing.
I was dizzy so I guess me and all of that beautiful linen will
This is my little punch needle I drew myself, I wanted
to see how Monk's cloth worked. I don't like Monk's
cloth for punch needle. It has been fun to see but it
has been a total experiment I won't repeat.
I cut out a couple more quilts today and hopefully I will
get them finished next week and I cut some shapes out
of pine so I can do those this weekend. I had made a pine
pumpkin last year and it looks really bare so I am going to
work some more on it this weekend.
I hope you have a great Friday.
