I had set finishing my Hexy MF to send off to the long armer as my July goal.
To be honest, I put this one off until the last minute. As in, I finished sewing it a few hours ago. I was having trouble with the idea in my head. Truthfully, I suck at drawing. So, I used an Apple log for my apple with a bite out of it and a snake I found online, enlarged 400+times. Then I used freezer paper and needle turned applique. I'm sure I do it wrong, but it's good enough for me.
My inspiration was the Garden of Eden (since it's a Grandmother's Garden variant). I figured Eve was the ultimate grandma. Anywhoo, I'm hoping to mail it off tomorrow!
Also, I am an AMAZING procrastinator. In the time I was avoiding this quilt top, mostly in July, I finished the following:
The Wellspring Quilt
L's quilt (it's actually quilted and bound...but not yet labelled and in need of washing still.)
My reversible knitting bag
4 knitting pouches for my knitting students
a knitting pouch for me out of the orphan block
sewed together my black knit cardigan (no pics as I have to model it)
a yoda hat
my pastel hitchhiker shawl
pieced a Christmas Star quilt top (I think I'm going to use this for Jess's FMQalong)
the last round of needlebooks
so, um, yeah. Lots done. And Hexy MF off to a long armer! My first time!
