I still have that nagging dry cough. Unfortunately, I think it’s getting worse. It’s bordering on irritating at this point. I managed to stitch up block 11 for “Hop To It.” Yipee! I’m so close to the end now.
I really like the burnt orange wool. It makes for a beautiful contrast with the blue. Love it! I still need to square it up to the correct size. I have one more block to go, then I’m putting it all together! AND then it’s on to Annie to be quilted very soon!! I need to get some practicing in around applique first.
I’ve been trying to practice doodling and drawing designs every day. It definitely makes a difference in my quilting when I do. Makes sense. Just like when we first learned to write our names in cursive. We had to practice and repeat every day until it became natural. Same thing with quilting. It’s all about training the muscle memory in our brains.
Doodles, doodles and more doodles. As you can see, I’m a little feather obsessed.
Hopefully, I can get rid of this cough soon. It’s really making me feel a bit run down. Who has time for that??
