The Red Chair worked out in my cozy bedroom. I stitched for a while last night, finishing up the pineapple leaves and getting a good start on the pineapple for block #6 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow.
It was nice being in a comfortable chair, my legs warm under a small quilt, good light for stitching, and some mildly interesting TV for company while I worked on my stitching.
My niece, who quilts and stitches also, has started a blog and I am trying to encourage her to show off her excellent workmanship. Please visit her blog – Mustard Seed (Mustardseed-Becky.blogspot.com)
Today I sewed the rows of the Christmas Tumbler together.
I went through my limited stash of Christmas fabrics to find a good border. I picked out a red stripe for a small inner border and a flowery Christmas fabric for the outer border. There isn’t much of the Christmas fabric, so that border will be just 3-1/2 inches – if there is even that much!
If there is not enough for the borders, I’m not going to worry myself about it as I got an email from the LQS today announcing that all Christmas fabric is 30% off. Sounds like a good deal to me!
