So So Week

This week has been a blah week. Not only with the weather, overcast and wet and cold. But also with the sewing.



My Halloween embroidery quilt got finished. Take a look at the top right hand block. I used a yellow, orange and red  crayon to color in around the moon and witch. I was trying to mask the fact that when I washed out the transfer ease the thread bled . I used two different skeins of thread, so it did not happen with all the blocks, only two of them. I tried Synthropol and I also tried a color catcher. Neither helped. I ended up giving it to a friend for her to quilt for a charity or crisis quilt. I new every time I would look at it I would see The black wave of color.

Just a close up of crayon work.Now a little bit of Farmer's wife to show off...

This week I also went thru my yearly mammogram, everything fine. It is breast cancer awareness month.  I also had a colonoscopy, everything fine there also. Please do what you can to keep yourself healthy!

Perhaps if you used color on all your blocks, the smudge of black would not have been noticeable. But you found a good use for the piece in the end.
