Kathy is also ahead of me on the log cabin blocks for 35th Ave. Kaleidescope of Kolor...she had some seam allowance issues (due to getting the machine serviced, the guy reset things and she didn't think to double check needle position!). She added an extra strip on all sides so now they are slightly bigger than needed so it is all good. She also cut my strips so I need to get to those soon too!
I have also finally been working on my embroidered elephant that I started at the PHXMQG last month. One of our members Danny taught a class based on a pillow she had done for show and tell at a previous meeting. Lots of us fell in love with it and needed our very own elephant! I barely got started in the class (but learned about a half a dozen stitches) and didn't find any time to get going on it all month. Then at our most recent meeting several people had brought their elephants in progress and that got me all excited all over again so finally, I am really enjoying it and thinking about what I will embroider next. I volunteered (along with twenty or so other folks) to do some embroidery for Jane over at http://janesfabrics.blogspot.com/ with her thread. It came in the mail and has me thinking...I even ordered two books (I am a sucker for books!) to inspire me further--but first the elephant.
