Hey, it’s not all gallivanting around here…OH NO…I do occasionally work…
Working on my clam shells isn’t the best project while living in an RV. Every time I add a row this is what happens…
Last week I needed to add a row to my clam shell quilt top so out came a long table…in this case it turned out to be my ironing board, which I set up in the kitchen…here I have just glued down my row of clams and I put books on top to keep everything in place while the glue dried.
In the evenings I hand applique it down…then when finished stitching the row, out comes the ironing board and more clams! See what I mean, it is a process and one that isn’t always fun…it can be work! And yesterday it was just too hot to work inside…but out in my ‘shade room’ it was perfect!
Yes, that’s Roxanne’s glue…a little dab here and there holds the row in place long enough to get it hand stitched down…
Here’s the top from the other side…see it’s growing! Darn, wouldn’t you know that perfect wee breeze would blow the top in!
Now I need to go and get my books to anchor the clams in place while they dry!
Yes, work, work, work…life is tough for a Snowbird! It’s a dirty job but someone’s got to do it!
It’s in the 80Fs again today (high 20C for the rest of the world) so it looks like I will be hanging in the shade room for the rest of the week! (We do have AC in the RV but this is way more fun!;) I hope your corner of the world is just as warm and pleasant!
Have a Wildly Wicked and Warm Wednesday and Happy Stitching….
