I Can't Believe It!

I can't believe it!  It's been three weeks since I sat down at my sewing machine.  That's how long I've been back from the Quilt Retreat.  I have been working on projects, just not projects that needed my sewing machine.

I set up the machine this morning and made a couple of string blocks.  I have cut out my Paint Chip Challenge table runner and I've done a little sewing on it.  Hope to have some pictures to show you tomorrow.

I also have been doing hand sewing.  Working on a hexie, hand quilting the backing of the little pillows I'm trying to finish up from Box Number 6 .  And I'll soon be working on hand quilting my big quilt.  I know that Bonnie Hunter is doing a hand quilting for an hour a week challenge. Not sure I'm ready to join the group, but I am going to try to quilt a little on it every night.  Slow and steady wins the race, just like my Orca Bay quilt.
