Under My Needle

This week is shaping up to be fairly productive in spite of the emotional turmoil of Covid 19 and the horrific event in Nova Scotia. Many tears have been shed hearing the news of the victims of this senseless crime.

It does help that the sun is shining and there are plenty of volunteers helping to get the golf course ready for opening. Safe practises are in play with masks and gloves being worn and safe distancing being the order of the day. The greens are punched and sanded. Greens are raked. Winter damages to the trees are being trimmed. Voices can be heard! It’s music to my ears hearing them.

I have had a great week with socks knitted, one Blog Hop project completed, one pattern written (being tested now), a pattern test quilt cut and units being pieced.

Love these fabrics 💕

I’m making over 300 hsts with this one!

8 at a time method for hsts

Cutting, pressing and squaring up is next on the list. Then I can finish the units to make the blocks.

Only 140 more to go!

I’m taking a break from the cutting board to watch a movie with DH and do some hand sewing. Robbie’s binding is going on!

I do hope your week is going well and you manage to spend some time with your fabrics! 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Work on the golf course is a sure sign that spring has arrived. I recall loving that first thwack of the club against the ball. Glad you have the beauty of the course to see out your window too. 300 HSTs is quite the project! Can’t wait to see it.

  2. Other than making a few masks, I haven’t touched my fabric since my dad died…just over a month ago. I’ve been hunting for paperwork and taking filed to be shredded. Also emptying out a storage unit I don’t want to keep paying for!

    1. Susan it is such a big job dealing with the estate without being in the middle of feeling the pain of the loss. It must be horrendous with the Covid closures. Getting the storage unit emptied is a big accomplishment. Good for you. I wish I could help in some way other than sending a virtual hug and cheering you on. My heart hurts for all you are going through, my friend

  3. Lots of good stuff happening at your house. 300 is a lot, but making 8 at a time cuts down. I don’t mind doing that because the edges are still on the grain of fabric, and not extra stretchy, but I don’t do the ones that come out with bias edges. Pretty fabrics.

    1. Thanks Susan. Yes good things are happening here. 😁it’s raining today so a good day to stay home and play with fabric and a new project. Gotta love it when squirrels and DREaMI projects attack😉


  4. Hi Carol! 300 HSTs?!! Wowee. I can see why you chose the 8-at-one-time method. I love squaring them up – I find it so satisfying. But maybe not 300. Can’t wait to see all the finished pieces. ~smile~ Roseanne
