Me! I've done no quilting on my Lazy Punk Quilt. Yesterday I went for my walk and found some treasures (more on this later). When I got home I had to make some Block of the Month samples and just as I finished the steam trigger on my pricey Rowenta Pro Precision Steam Station (fancy name for an iron) bit the dust.
Now back to my walk! At the Salvation Army Thrift Shop I managed to find some interesting things that I think will make for some nice tiny world make-do pincushions. And if not, I'll just re-donate them to the shop!
I just couldn't resist starting another pincushion so I'm using another Japan mug. I love the olive colour with the teal and turquoise "dribble".
I call them Japan mugs because they are made in Japan.
I've made the "world" and have stitched down a flagstone path which is bordered by little purple French knots. I'm adding some green for foliage! I'll just keep adding green French knots until I've use up the piece of floss I cut.
One thing I should mention about these pincushions is that while the houses are permanently attached to the world, the trees can be moved around so you can do some landscaping!
Hopefully tomorrow will be a quilting kind of day! Until I post again, happy sewing and landscaping!
