Getting back on tract - well maybe

I can't believe two posts in less than a month.  I finished a quilt top and sent it off to the longarm quilter and will post a photo when I get it back.

In the meantime I had a sampler framed amd I am very pleased with it, but can't decide where to hang it.

It is by Appleseed Prim and stitched on 35 ct. Confederate Grey linen.  I have also finished this sampler by Sampler House stitched on 40 ct bisque linen with one  strand of silk.

I have another sampler that I am really wanting to start, but I have a major problem with my right arm and will see a doctor about it next week.  In the meantime I have pulled out this unfinished project that was started in 2012 and plan on finish it up.  I can't decide if I want to make some additional blocks and set it like the pattern or just use what I have done and do a straight set with sashing and call it a finish.  The blocks have yet to be trimmed to size and are just put up and I am sure that there will be a lot of switching of blocks to get the colors right.


I am also wanting to get back to my English Paper Quilting.  I have two projects in the works - 


I guess that is about all new with me other than getting old and hating it!!  Have a great Thanksgiving.

Until next time

You've been keeping busy with lots of lovely projects! I love the house sampler. And your quilting projects are wonderful, as usual. Beautiful colors. Are you enjoying the EPP? I did a Grandmother's Flower Garden queen sized quilt years ago and that was about it for my adventures with that technique :) I hope you get relief for your arm very soon. Blessings to you and your family this holiday season.
