My Creme Brûlée is almost finished. All of the rosettes are sewn together, the bordering diamonds are sewn on, and I made a decision about how to finish it. I’m not going to square off the piecing. There is something in me that just shrinks away from the idea of doing all that hand sewing, only to cut it off. Plus, I like the look of the irregular edges contrasted against a border. So, that’s what I’ve done. The Kona Snow edging is being appliquéd down to Kona Pepper borders.
I love the way it looks. And at the moment, it is telling me that it wants an overall feather quilting design done in a light coloured variegated thread. So, unless it changes its mind, that’s what it will get.
It’s very close to being finished. I don’t know if it will get done today. We are celebrating our Thanksgiving today, and the house is going to be full of family and friends with ten adults and four children under 8. We cooked the turkey and dressing yesterday in order to cut down on the work and the chaos today. All we have to do is put it in the oven for 45 minutes or so to heat it up.
So, I’m going to link this to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then maybe get a little stitching in before the family arrive.
