Today I moved my studio to the porch in order to take-in the beautiful autumn colors just over the railing, as well as the warmth of a bright, sunny day. Last week it was very chilly here in Virginia’s mountains and was a reminder to get the chimney cleaned and the fireplace ready for the winter! But, today was warm and breezy and I was drawn to work on the porch.
As the leaves rustled in the breeze, birds were noisily arguing, and in a distance a lawnmower was grinding, I got some of the quilting done on the Lifeweaving #3 wall-hanging. With the woven strips, it wasn’t clear whether the pins would be enough to hold the top together while sewing. But, so far so good–and a tiny zig-zag stitch seems to cover the raw edges well. It will require slowly working from the middle out, toward the sides, and in sections.
