QUILTING GEESE

I have quilted 35 
Geese by hand so far...


Sitting at my 
dining room table
With tea to hand...
;)))


The lighting is really good; 
and
I can rest my arms 
on the table; 
which
seems to work well.

I can manage  to quilt 5 per day
without any ill effects.

***************************
Tonight's dinner menu includes:

Meat loaf, boiled potatoes,
green beans and
gravy....
*************************
It has been a sunny, but windy and cold,
day here...

I hope you are all staying
safe and wearing your masks
FOR

COVID is STILL HERE💀

Hugs, Julierose, La blageuse
(trying to calm down-euse)

  1. Hand-quilting geese sounds like a good calming activity to me.

  2. Where did that first comment go? It's a good idea to pace yourself and look after your hands.

  4. Cold here - heavy gray skies with rain all day that is currently changing to snowflakes (wet, icy ones). Yes - we are wearing our masks when we go out (which is not often). Your geese look great!

  5. The Geese are beautiful. Dinner sounds so good! It was a chiller today, the sun fooled me and the wind blew cold thru my layers. Be safe!

  6. I found the same thing, I was comfortable big stitch quilting at the table although several years ago I was doing it sitting on the sofa. I’m not sure why I found it easier the last few months at the table.

  10. Pacing yourself with your stitching is a good thing. Sometimes hard to stick to that plan though!
