In the meantime, I've been doing a little bit of everything this week. Here are the two cross stitch projects that I have been focusing on.
I made three AoTH quilt blocks and started satin stitching.
I also spent some time with the sewing group at church teaching two ladies to make nine patch and hourglass blocks.
It looks kinda rough right now, but the brown matches a color in both the orange and yellow fabrics and here is a mock up of the layout.
And lastly, I cut out the rest of Jack's short sleeve tunic. I really think I'm still dragging my feet on this one because I'm not quite sure how to embroider it, but it will get done sooner or later.
I also dropped the entirety of my quilting SFS budget on more thread colors for AoTH satin stitching and three yards of textured black BG fabric to use with one of the FQ packs I picked up during Black Friday last year. I want to make a basketweave quilt like this one (not mine, picture borrowed, please see photo credit):
