WIP Wednesday

Grace Mason as of 9-28-11
So I'm a day late posting this according to the title.  I got my quilts back from the longarmer yesterday and sat down to sew some of the binding on one during the Phillies game.  Then I went on to working on Grace Mason and never got this post written.  I had to abandon Grace and all other stitching for a week since I had some oral surgery last Thursday and wasn't supposed to bend my head.  I won't bore you with the details, but the surgery was in preparation for getting braces to correct the effects of dental work done when I was 6 or 7 years old.  The recovery has been a little rocky, all the more so since I couldn't stitch, but I am feeling better each day.  When I left Grace last Wednesday, I was in the process of finding my counting error on the vine band.  Couldn't see it for the life of me, but with a new approach last night I found it and corrected it.  In the process I found one or two other areas that need frogging, but those should be easily restitched tonight.  I'm still loving the colors in this piece!

  1. Wow, she's gorgeous! Glad the frogging isn't too bad and that you found and corrected at least one of them. Hope you're feeling better after that oral surgery now. Such a bummer that you couldn't stitch after it! I have to look up Grace Mason now. :D

  2. Grace Mason is coming along beautifully! It's a beautiful project. How do you keep your linen so neat while stitching?

    I hope you're feeling better and that the worst is behind you!

  5. You stitching is beautiful! I hope you feel better quickly.
    I wore braces as an adult (after having worn them as a teenager) in preparation for jaw surgery. Things have really improved since I was a teen in that arena.

  6. Oh, Miss Grace is gorgeous! I'm gonna try really hard to keep her out of my stash. If there's such a thing as over-stashed, that's me.

  8. Oh My Gosh. WOW!!! Grace is stunning!!

    Hope things are healing well with the oral surgery. My brother had braces as an adult--he never followed up with the retainer he was supposed to wear when the braces he had as a teen came off! Hope things go smoothly for you.

  9. I do hope you are feeling better. I'm not a fan if dental work myself - but it is a necessary evil.

    What a beautiful sampler!
