What I am working at ...

... is a long-time UFO. The top - a Valery Wells design - is waiting to be quilted for years. Because of my poor quilting skills I never started. Now I want to see it hanging on my wall. So I am just doing it: single stitch by single stitch, uneven stitches. But I don't mind as long as I get some texture.

Woran ich arbeite ...
... ist ein Langzeit-Projekt. Das Top - ein Valery Wells Design - wartet seit Jahren darauf, gequiltet zu werden. Wegen meiner mangelnden Fertigkeiten diesbezüglich habe ich mich nie daran gewagt, aber nun möchte ich den Quilt an der Wand hängen sehen. Also habe ich einfach angefangen: Stich für Stich, ungleichmäßige Stiche. Damit kann ich leben. Ich möchte einfach Textur.

The quilt picture and colours look lovely. It is amazing how quilting can enhance a flat piece.
You will be so pleased when it is finally done and you can enjoy it on your wall.
