Kathy's Quilts' Slow Sunday Stitching comes around again. My current cross-stitch project gets picked up at odd times so progress is slow.
So far its just a pale yellow blob, of which the top right portion had to be redone as I drifted too far from center. The bottom row has some problems too but counting stitches late at night is really unproductive in poor light and needs attention during daytime.
Next stitching project I want to do is from a thrift store find a few years back. Less than a dollar!
I love the sentiment and the soft colors but not the X next to Friends. Not sure why that was necessary.
Meanwhile, in the sewing room a relatively young WIP is getting worked on. I'm tired of tripping over the box I purposely pulled out! I started Laundry Basket Quilts' Mystery last year when the pandemic shutdown first started, but only got a few blocks in.
I got as far as the first three block sets but downloaded each step through block 15--there are 100 blocks total in the quilt. My version is very scrappy and not blue and pink like Edyta's, but I like it. For the 4th block, an Ohio Star, I decided to pull in green, my favorite color.
I used Bonnie Hunter's Essential triangle to cut the tiny hourglass block quarter square triangles from 1.5" strips, as I was using 10" squares for the neutral and it was easier. However, I ran short of fabric and had to search for a match to the neutral.
