Tackle It Tuesday

There are many areas around my house that need some attention. Mt Washmore is still Mt Washmore, though I will refrain from using up a perfectly good Tackle It Tuesday on laundry! I put it on my Commitment to Loveliness yesterday, anyway. Another thing on my Commitment to Loveliness list was to finish up the applique on my 4 Seasons Swap piece. Well things have changed. I now need to get the applique completed TODAY!! I found an incredible hand quilting pattern which doubles the already heavy quilting planned for this piece, but I am so excited about it that I have to try. I say try because it is so much, and the project does have a time limit, plus I am not sure if it will actually work on this piece. The background does not leave a whole lot of space. Anyway, I am over-analyzing and thinking "out loud" here. The point...If I want to attempt this, I have to do it NOW! So while Charlotte is reading out loud to her brother and I, I will be stitching. While Zach is practicing his numbers, I will be stitching. While lunch and dinner are being prepared, I will be stitching. I always love my Tackle It Tuesday's but I will truly enjoy today's!! Here is a sneaky peek at what is done so far.

That's the best thing about hand work . . . a few minutes here - a few minutes there. Before you know it, your work is all done. It's going to be wonderful *s*

Now would that be what we looked at last night?..... It's looking lovely.

What a good goal for the day! Much better than mine, which involves going to work and grocery shopping on the way home! LOL! Looking forward to seeing what you do!

This is why I love handwork, too - little bits at a time and before you know it it's done.

Nice little teaser picture!

You're such a sly one....teasing us with little peaks!! Can't wait to see what this looks like. So far it looks to be another lovely project.

I'll say a little prayer for your fingers. :) Mine are a bit sore from trying to finish a pair of socks before hunting season. Only 40 rows left to knit!

Well? Did you finish the applique? Inquiring minds want to know!
