Today I started planning a t-shirt quilt the t-shirts have been grouped into two piles.
The first pile are shirts that will have a colored sashing around them. The pattern shows a black sashing around these pieces since many of these t-shirts are dark in color that's not going to work. My thoughts are to get either a red or blue /turquoise color to go around them

So you might ask how do you have time for hand work at work. That is easy I am a full time EMT and work a 24 hour shift on and then am off for 48 hours. That gives me two full days at home to do other things and one day at work.
I have started a new embroidery project a month or two ago and it is not going really well. Crab Apple Hill Studio Farmhouse Window Sills I traced off the first design there are four in this pattern using a Sharpie marker fine point and it bleed into the fabric so it left a shadow.
- so that is problem one
- I am to color the design with crayons to shade it and that just doesn't look good to me

Well I started a new project last week but before starting that project I dug out an old project to work on called Twilight Kaleidoscope. I realized after going through the instructions and looking at what was done that this project is a lot closer to being done then I realized.
All the blocks for the quilt seem to be done if I can count right that's yet to be determined so now I am working on the sashing.
For the sashing I needed to sew together 6 strips of fabric and cut them into three and a half inch strips and then sew black around them I'm a little over halfway done with the strip sets.
