By this time each month, I've started preparing the newsletter for the following month - in this case that's November.
In the November newsletter is the last instalment of the Family Blessings quilt and now that it's over I've started on the quilt for next year's newsletter. The theme is The Word of God and the quilt will have seven large stitchery blocks as well as some small stitcheries (at this stage I'm not sure how many). The really funny thing is that before we went away, I prepared all of the larger stitcheries with the aim of taking them with me and getting some of them finished. But of course, that didn't happen!
I had a bit of a glitch on the weekend when I didn't like the colours of one of the blocks and ended up unpicking part of it and re-doing it.
When it comes to stitching I have a 'rule' that I don't make any changes (either colour or stitch choice) at night time. If I'm unhappy or unsure, I leave it until morning when the light is better and my brain is working! That rule has saved me a lot of heartache not to mention unpicking.
I'm enjoying stitching the blocks but haven't really decided on the quilt layout yet. It's definitely a work in progress.
Until next time
