Monday Meandering 9 - 26 - 2016

Wow, busy week last week but I did get some sewing done.   It wasn't on my goals for the past week but I did finish this small sashiko piece.  Eventually I'll make it into a pillow.  Too busy with other things to do it now.
I'm almost done with the snowman too.  Hopefully I'll get the stitching done and will be able to do the piecing that goes with it this week. *Only if I can find where I stashed the ziplock bag of fabric I picked for it! 

Retreat starts Thursday -- that means I'm working like crazy to figure out what I plan to take with me.  I'm hoping to get several things prepped to work on and a lot of single blocks for various people/collections.  Hopefully I will NOT take too much with me like I usually do. Time will tell.  

I didn't do too badly on the weekly goals -- but on the other hand I didn't put too many items on the list since I knew I wouldn't be home all that much.

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. I would like to try Shashiko, I gotta finish up some of my hand work projects before I buy anything else!!

  2. Very elegantly done on the Shashiko. Have fun prepping for your retreat.

  3. I've wanted to try sashiko, but just haven't done it. Your piece looks great.
