Which Way to the Chocolate?


Update on Which Way to the Chocolate...
I've finished big stitching around the flying geese using various colors of brown perle #5 (a tangle of threads from my stash) and have started on the maze of brown sashing. 


In the sashing I'm using different weights of thread and colors of brown I have on hand.  So far I have used a variegated brown perle #8 and am now using some 20 wt light brown thread I have in my stash that I have used for crochet and some tatting trials.  I'm not using a hoop or marking lines...just going with the flow and trying to chase away those winter blues.

I love your flying geese blocks - the chocolates fabric is such fun! Big stitching is so relaxing, isn't it?

Chocolate really can chase away blues. It's a known fact! It's not so good at chasing away purples, however...

My favorite way to quilt. I haven't tried using different weight threads something I need to give a try sometime. I hope you find some chocolate before the day is over. Have fun stitching today.

Just keep stitching (and reminding yourself that Spring WILL come again . . . )
