Design Wall Monday

I am feeling SO much better today.  I do have a doc appt. later to see if I need meds.  I figured I'd brave it out and see how it goes last week.  DH said to go to the doc despite my protests last night.

This morning I made a few more log cabin blocks on my Horizon.  I wanted to see how the new 1/4 inch foot worked going over multiple seams as it's been a major sore point with most owners.  So far it sews beautifully which may put this machine back into my "like" list.  I finished up a couple of rows and may start a new pink and a brown one depending on how I feel.



At night while watching TV and some WWII documentaries I've got this much done on my canvas work quilt:


The top border isn't hard, it just requires your eyes to cross frequently.

And finally, block one of "My Tweets" as I've worked on the satin stitching before I got too sick to work with it.  I've decided to use threads that match the leaves instead of using just one color.  I need to rip out the threads on the light leaves now.

BTW, don't accidently use cut-away embroidery stabilizer.  You'll spend forever trimming it down with a seam ripper.
