Some hand work

These have been hand pieced for about 18 months. I had started to applique them on the background and then for what ever reason which I am sure there were many I put it away. I have 9 of these pieced. I am down to working on the last three.

They will make a fairly large top with sashing and borders. They are the kite shape and I did the old fashion way with scissors and templates. Then sat and sewed them together by hand. I thought about hand quilting also. Still debating that. 

My husband has been painting ceilings and a bedroom and a bathroom. He is winding down. Tomorrow he should have the bathroom for the master bedroom painted. Then maybe we can get the things all put back. 

It is called tapestry. It is a raspberry color. It goes with a  lot of the deco things I have in the house. I can move pictures and small things around from other rooms and make it look totally different. 

It is suppose to be warm all week. Chris
