For the comfort

over the weekend i started work on covering the comforter.



weaved strips of scrap cloth over several hours. several more hours of stitching. have to remember to find a comfortable position while stitching. don't avoid sitting on the cloth.



had a lot of fun here. everything just flowed. if my fingers (and my back) would've held up, i think i could've done a lot more.



i basted all the outer edges with leftover pieces of floss like a tied quilt so i can easily cut later to insert more fabric as i go. will be working on the quilting over the next several days.

i'm feeling agitated this morning. granddaughter and grandson decided i did not need any alone time this weekend. they were back to their old lock picking ways. add to that caffiene, icky rash and fruit flies. i'm on the edge. and i'm trying to talk myself down. hahahahaha

The comforter looks great...I agree about the need to find the best position for quilting...I have a little nest on my couch and try not to bend over too much for the sake of my back...and I am learning that my thumb can get sore also! But it really is absorbing and fun.

thanks suzanna :) i hadn't thought about sewing on the couch... i could probably use my cutting board underneath so i don't sew the cushions hahahahaha i'm going to try that out tomorrow...

It's looking really good; love the colour palette. Time alone is very precious.
