The weekend's work! So many of you have, like me, spent a lot of this weekend sewing. In the UK it has been cold, with a lot of places experiencing heavy snowfall and to sit by a fire and stitch was the perfect plan.
The first two, actually the bottom left two, journal quilts from my NZ trip are now joined and quilted. I've used a large sashiko stitch and cotton perlé for the quilting in the borders and a variety of threads for quilting the blocks. Again I was caught out by hand stitching through batiks, also known as sewing concrete, and my fingers are suffering a little, but I live batiks!! How we suffer for our art!!
