It has been a while! With an 8am Monday morning class, I've missed out on a few DWM posts. May be next semester ... ?
On my design wall this week is the Lady of Shallot piece, some random bits, a Guild Challenge piece and the Self Portrait that I started a while back (and haven't done much with).
I have been slowly chipping away at the Lady of Shallot design. I have the applique pieces in the little triangles and have stitched down the applique in one section:
All of the rest of the applique pieces are traced onto my fusible, now to iron it on the appropriate fabrics and get them all cut out!
My self portrait is just waiting for me to do something else with it. I was all gung-ho at first, but now I'm waiting for inspiration on taking it to the next level. Do I want to add my glasses? If so, what is my best option? I really don't want to ruin it, so it sits on the wall and stares at me.
I've also got a start on a challenge issued by my guild. Anyone in my guild should recognize what challenge this one is for! (we have two challenges going right now)
What is on your design wall? Check out Patchwork Times for a bunch more design walls this week of Christmas!
I have been sneaking into my Sewing Dungeon every so often between studying for my college courses ...
This one is my own design, highlighting the Spiderman fabric that was hanging out in my stash - I had it pieced quite a while ago, now it is quilted :) I'll dig out my fabrics and hope to get some binding cut later this week.
AND I've got a start on the appliques for the Ricky Tims sew along. I'm behind as the appliques are October's assignment, but they do take some fussing, so I can't get too many done at a time.
I have started on my Quilt Along with Ricky Tims. The name of the pattern is Lady of Shalott - though I am changing it up a bit ;) I started off by changing out the center, adding applique to the very center.
Now I've started working on prepping the borders. Next month we add appliques ;)
Psalm 5:11&12 (KJV) But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because Thou defendest them: let them also that love Thy Name be joyful in Thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
