SOLSC Day 28
With all of this time on my hands I needed something to do, especially in the evenings when we don’t turn on the TV. After doing things throughout the day I like to sit quietly at night and read or work on a project of some kind.
I enjoy working with plastic canvas. The pieces are big and it is not delicate work. I know Kathy’s quilt guild will be having a show in September of 2021. I usually make something for them to sell at their quiltique. This might be a good time to get started on that.
I found the pattern I wanted and the different colors of yarn that I will need. The first thing I had to do was trace the patterns onto the canvas. I will say that this is my least favorite part of the project. However, I got it done.
Now to cut them out. This design isn’t too bad. I have done some with more intricate cutting.
There, now I am ready to do some stitching. Oh, by the way, can you tell what it will be when it’s finished? If not, it might be easier to see if I arrange them in the shape they will take.
There, now I think you have a pretty good idea. Following the design chart, it took about a week and a half to complete. All pieces are filled in.
All that is left is to join them.
Mrs. Bunny is finished. Well, almost. When things are open again I need to get some ribbon so I can tie her bonnet under her chin. I also need some lace trim for the bottom of her apron and around her bonnet.
Now, what should my next project be. How about a Halloween witch?
No, I have a better idea. Because their show will have a patriotic theme in 2021 I will go with a patriotic design.
