I have been working on Jacob's Ladder Quilt since January 9, 2012. Still using old fashison way to stitch. Handstitching that I like. I don't like to stitch by machine after batting/fabric. That's me. :)
Handstitching reminds me of my Grandma Irene and my mother. My stitches are O.K. - Grandma's better than me. She would stitch every tiny stitch. It brought me good memories of my Grandma. I might stitch better in the future. Patience is not my best friend. :)
It's nice to cover my legs to keep warm while stitching. Oh, I love the colors along with black triangles...
I like to get ready with several needles and thread beside me. I put thread/needle on my right side till it runs out. Time to put threads in needles to get ready for sewing. I have a small TV dinner table beside me so that way, I don't have to look for threads, finger thimble or whatever so. I hate to shove my hand under the cushion!
I love my leather thimble! But still, I kept stabbing myself for no reason. *chuckles*..
I have several bend of needles! I guess I better cut down with lifting weights! ;o) I'm glad that I have new package of needles from my mom.
