On my Design Wall ...

Everything is where it was, but I have more of the applique pieces attached to the Lady quilt :) I still have 6 pieces that are waiting for applique and then I can sit down and stitch and stitch ...

I'm looking forward to assembling this quilt!

Design Wall Monday

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)
