For Christmas, my extended family participated in a white elephant gift exchange. My intention was to make my gift…it was a good intention. I pieced a disappearing 9 patch table runner out of Essence by Deb Strain for Moda. I was going to make coasters or buy a candle to go with it. I only got as far as the piecing until work magically sent me off to central Pennsylvania for a few days.
What really happened was I became afraid…of stippling. Silly, right? I loved the pieced top and thought it would look amazing stippled…but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. So there it sits, unfinished and calling out. But now I have a problem…I have a baby quilt I want to stipple so it looks like I’ll be tackling that table runner after all! It’ll be great practice for a bigger project.
We have another major snowstorm on the way tonight. Our third of over 20 inches in one year. Craziness! Maybe I’ll attempt some stippling between shoveling duty!
