a little chair

I'm hand quilting some red lines over here.
Boy! Is it relaxing!
I should ALWAYS have a hand quilting project to work on!
But I don't.
Big quilts are kind of intimidating.
Aren't they?
You wonder if you'll EVER get it done!
At least, that's what I wonder
when I'm working on something BIG....

Thank you AAQI for giving me
the opportunity to create.
The opportunity to make a little something.
A little something that might help out.
It IS fun to create isn't it?
What are you CREATING today?

  1. I'm making a happy birthday quilt label to
    give a quilt to my dear friend of 40 years :0)

    I donated two small quilts to AAQI and they made 90.00...what a great feeling:0).

    Happy Sewing

  3. I love hand quilting, although I only go as big as lap quilts. If I don't have a quilt on the go, embroidery or cross stitch is near buy to fill that itch. I just boxed up the last of the swaps and goodies that need to be sent out by the end of the month - off to the post tomorrow morning. I have a lap quilt all basted out - but that is going under the machine tomorrow.

  15. Hand quilting on small things is very rewarding, isn't it? Big quilts take months, and daily progress is hard to see.
    Your little chair reminds me of the wonky Van Gogh painting at the Art Institue of Chicago. It sits in a bedroom with a wonky bed.
