Well I think it's a Monday spelled Wednesday
The first picture is a new start, and yes it is one of my UFO challenges for 2012. It's called Iris and Fans Quilts by Nancy's Needle. I love the purples and off white colors. You can't tell from the picture but the white is really a variegated water color by caron's thread. There is also a little bit of sparkly thread. I know I don't have much done yet, but the last one I did went fast, so I'm hopeful. Wish I had a picture of the other one, can't believe I've miss photographing it, next trip home I'll take a picture of it, or better yet it may end up in my bag to come back here :) I'm already excited about getting it framed!! Which is my favorite part, it's my rewards for getting the project done.
Below is my Spirit Dancer and a little more progress, it's slowly coming. I need good sunlight to work on this one, using my lamp is OK for about an hour or so, but then my eyes start to get fuzzy and I can't focus. So will work on it this weekend and hope to have more to post next week. This will be my last weekend home alone, but since my hubby is not a morning person and I am, I'll always have Saturday and Sunday mornings for stitching in peace. Happy stitching, quilting, knitting or whatever is your method of calm. Sandy
