A Quick Wave from Karol


Progress has slowed down a bit on the little wall hanging of Karol at the window.  It felt a bit odd sewing a snow scene in the middle of a heatwave, and it has been too hot for treadling.  Also, I have a secret project to be getting on with, a doll quilt for my partner in Minnesota, Diane.

So here is Karol's hand against the window.  I have done the bit which I was a bit worried I might mess up, the quilting in the tight spaces between his fingers.  The middle finger is a bit wobbly , and there is a crease across the hand, but so what I tell myself.  It's all an experiment.  However it turns out I'm sure my bro in law will be pleased.

This post is being linked to Lee's blog Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday - lots of interesting projects to look at there, and also to Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Whoop Whoop Friday.
