WOW: Hand Sewing My Heart Out!

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
I feel like my feet are barely touching the ground at the moment! Luckily I have a list and schedule otherwise I'd completely lose track of what I need to do. I'm offline most of the time now and am only checking my emails every few days. Drastic steps for busy times!

Here I am working on my LE2 compass: I'be been working on various elements over the last few months (its all in the preparation) and now I'm just sewing it all down. I say 'just', but being a perfectionist means hundreds of hours and beautiful workmanship - otherwise, what's the point? My LE2 is an heirloom just as significant as my original LE and I know it will be in my family for generations, so every stitch matters to me, even with looming deadlines.

Are you coming to AQC? Are you in my LE2 class? If any of you are still on the fence, there are a few spots left so it's not too late. As for me, it's more hand sewing today, I've got deadlines to keep!

What's Your WOW ?

  6. Is there ANYTHING a red and white colour scheme can't do? I knew I would have to make LE in red and white because I am in love with that combination, and for my workshop I wanted to have some fun with the LE2 wall hanging (as I will still make 2 x LE's over the coming years) and red and white was such an easy choice. And I have such a huge stash to enjoy using up and of course, polka dots. Who doesn't love polka dots?

  7. How dramatic LE looks in Red and White, I'm sure your pile of quilts you have made over the last few years lean very much to Red and White. Mine do to LOL I do try every now and then to make a quilt that is more in to the taupe shades like my LE was to be!!!!! but when you see it it is at the other end of the scale LOL. But I love it and so enjoy working on it. Have fun and don't forget to take a coffee break every now and then Cheers Glenda
