Like much of the country, we've been snowed in here in the NW. I live in Portland, OR (work in Vancouver, WA) and we are not used to this kind of weather! Our schools close when there is an inch of snow on the ground and we had over 14" the week of Christmas! We've had 2 weeks of roller coaster weather with ice, wind storms, freezing rain and lots of snow. While it did make last minute holiday gift and grocery shopping tricky, the plus was having some extra unplanned sewing time.
I took some time to clean my basement sewing room. It was the temporary staging area for gift wrap, so it was really messy. It took me at least an hour of cleaning before I could find all the components to finish a holiday wall hanging, but I did it! It was halfway machine quilted, and then needed crystals heat applied and a curved binding sewn on.
Next I'm going to unearch my HandiQuilter 16 (a mid arm machine) and work on adjusting the tension so I can get going on some unquilted tops. Check out my UFO quilt along
to see mine and others progress on finishing old projects.
