A hooked rug, Morris Hexathon, Orange Peel quilting, a bird nest and the link to a video of a bird with many and often strange songs :)
After I finished hooking this little rug I trimmed the Monk's cloth foundation to 1-1/2" then folded it over and hemmed it to the back.
The rug was rather lumpy before being blocked but now it lies nice and flat.
I put it on top of the apothecary chest to admire :)
I wasn't going to . . . but then I couldn't resist making the first two hexies in Barbara B's Morris Hexathon quiltalong. These were easy enough to do by machine but now I'm wondering how intricate others may be. Looking forward to the challenge!
I pulled lots of botanicals . . .
. . . and birds. I think that will be a nice combination, in fact, I'm pretty excited about it!
Orange Peel quilting shows up really nice in NJ Stars. I can almost quilt a block a night :)
A mama Robin built her nest in a bush right outside our door but I don't see any babies yet. I keep checking.
And talking of birds--
Have you watched the You Tube video of the Lyre bird who can mimic a car alarm or even a chainsaw? Check it out! Thanks to my daughter for passing this along :)
