The steady flow of news and information about the Corona virus outbreak is overshadowing everything else, but I have tried to Keep Calm and Carry On Stitching.
I added three stitches: Indian Edging,
Fly Stitch Filling and Parma Stitch.
Crazy for Crazy
Here I covered two rings with Buttonhole Stitch and stitched them down. I also worked a row of Buttonholed Lazy Daisy Stitch. These will later house a bead each.
New! Log Cabin Challenge
Every year in January, at Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, my friends Julie and Tanya, and self, set ourselves a quilting challenge. Our projects have to be ready in time for next year's quilt show. We will take a rest from looking at the show and sit in the stands of the gigantic baseball stadium called Tokyo Dome and 'show and tell'.
We did Mola (2018), Cathedral Windows (2019) and Circles (2020).
For 2021 the theme is Log Cabin, and we are happy to be joined by Cynthia, and maybe some others of our friends.
I have very limited experience of making something with the Log Cabin quilt block, so am happy to challenge myself.
Here is my collection of fabric, so far, anyway. You might recognise most of them from the Circles challenge. My aim is to use up my stash, but I might have to add some new pieces. We will have to see how the project grows.
