Ravioli update


There are no 54 ravioli, but who's counting. ;-)

They are easy to store:

Thank you for your patience with my lack of posts since last week. Real life got in the way, but things are settling down now. Thank goodness.

I also noticed that I had been playing exclusively with embroidery and ignoring the ravioli. I'm going to try to alternate days between embroidery and the ravioli. Otherwise, the 380+ ravioli will take a decade or two to complete.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

    1. Thank you. And thank you for visiting. I wish you could see the colors in person. I just can't get a proper pic of them no matter what I do.

  2. If just "touching these blues and greens make you happy and the stress melts away", can you imagine how relaxed you will feel sleeping under them?! They are beautiful together, enjoy the process.

    1. Thank you, Barbara. The colors do make me so happy. And what a nice thought about sleeping under the completed cover.

      I'm not sure just how long it'll be. I am a journey person, however. That doesn't mean I don't like to end up with a finished project. lol.

      Thank you for your lovely comments and for visiting.

    1. Aloha, Kathy.

      It's going to be a puff or biscuit quilt. I was going to fill the puffs up pretty fluffy, but I'm finding I like the ripples. They remind me of water and add motion.

      I'll post a link to one in my next post in case you don't want to go hunt for one.

      Thank you so much for visiting. I love hearing from you.

    3. I may be doing mine the hard way. I'm sewing all around the ravioli and I'm going to put them together and then stuff them from the back.

      We'll see how well it works. lol

    4. Butting in, I think you should try your plan before you get too far in case it is too difficult. For example you could stuff each one as you go and sew the little opening shut at that time. Then sew together with a whipstitch by hand or machine zigzag.. If it was me I d try a few methods before committing to 365 blocks. It s gonna be tough to slit those backings?

    5. Hi,

      I've experimented enough to know that the way I'm tackling it works for me. Probably wouldn't for someone else.

      Besides, you know how I am, if it doesn't work at the end I'll just make smaller ones. It's the journey after all. lol.

      Hugs, and thank you for visiting.
