It will be the center applique on Jo Morton's Baby Rose quilt - from the Jo's Little Women series. The applique was supposed to be in 100% cotton, but I thought it would be fun to do it in wool. The background is a brushed cotton homespun. I'll let it sit tonight using Anne's "big tub" method, then begin stitching the edges tomorrow evening. There will be more sneak peeks of the rest of the quilt as I get further along!
I hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend! Ours was rainy and cold! We even had a bit of thunder today. I think my Bernina 630 protested the rain on Saturday by having a large piece below the thread take-up come loose and nearly fall off! I've never seen a Bernina do this, so I brought out my trusty back-up - another Bernina 153QE - Alex Anderson edition, and took the 630 in for service today.
The really good news is we had two showings of the house on Saturday! Actually, one was a realtor doing a walk-thru, but that's really the same thing. We think we might start to get more showings because the $8,000 tax credit will go away Nov 30th. Our realtor said someone needs to be in contract no later than early October to take advantage of the credit. So keep sending that good Karma our way - we can use it!
