Wow! Just realized that it's been a couple of months since I wrote on my blog. Guess I've been busy. I've had my work, Eastern Star Meetings, quilt guild meetings, quilt shows and a trip to Oregon for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Yep, I have been busy and out and about seeing the countryside.
I do have a finish to report. I finally, yes, finally, finished a counted cross stitch project that I've had in progress for almost 6 years. It started as a stitch-a-long with Kustom Krafts and I think I'm the last one to finish. Don't know that for sure, but will post on their Yahoo group after I'm done here. It's gorgeous and while it's not yet framed, I thought I would share with you my readers. So, here's a picture of Raja, a Siberian Tiger.
Not only did I finish this project, I did it while I was on vacation in Oregon. The other thing I did was a quilt top project with my cousin. The project for that day was a jelly roll race. For those not in the quilting world a jelly roll is 40 pieces of fabric, 2 1/2 inches wide, rolled up, usually from a fabric company's line of fabric. Usually a line will have 30-40 different fabrics depending on the manufacturer. Mine is made from strips that were donated into my stash.
My friend Jill, who was on vacation with me in Oregon, also made one. Hers was with bright batiks and came out looking way different. Can't share that as I don't have a photo of it.
Well, now that I've shared a couple of things and updated my blog, I'm off to work on the quilt that I sandwiched earlier today. I figure it's time to get another UFO off the list.
