I've been sewing crazy this week as we have two Open Days at Lady Sew and Sew and I'm doing a 'show and tell' on Sunday, so I need to have some new things finished to make it different from the last one I did! So I've been hand quilting on the Swedish Garden Quilt and designing and making new things. New things for new classes...silk panels, can be used as the centre for a cushion cover, a panel on a bag, a decorative mat...put several designs together to make a table runner or a wall hanging. Two done, four more to go.
I've been outlining the designs with machine stitching, which works well with the silk, but I have to say I do prefer to handstitch, felt really quite worn out after the concentration required to go around all the swirls and wiggles!
