The Lone Table

I posted this block on CWBQ blog at the weekend so I thought I would post it here just in case not all of you have seen it. I am still working on this quilt, but have been distracted on more urgent matters these last few weeks. I started cutting the appliqué pieces as soon as I finished the last block, but for some reason things came in the way of me finishing it. I hope that it is not QADD attacking me again LOL!!! I thought I will show you what little progress I have made with the block.


At least I finished the hardest part of this table - that is the lace and legs. I changed the shape of the legs slightly. I used to have a table that had the same legs at this one once. I like it better than the original legs. I am almost there right? Only the leaves and cherries to do hahaha!!! I hope you notice my traditional Chinese scissors? They are the cutest scissors I've ever owned! The blades are only 1.5" long and the handles are big and comfortable. The full size version of these scissors were traditionally used by Chinese grocers for cutting vegetables. They are really sharp. I love them. The fob is a hand painted gourd that my male colleague brought back for me from China. It is a perfect scissors companion.

The applique on the table linen looks very challenging! You did a great job for something so little and with so many curves..

Sharon of Dragonfly Gypsy wanted to know where I got those scissors from. I got mine from China Town in Bangkok, but if you have China Town in your city Sharon, you can go and ask any Chinese grocery stores if they have them. If not, they might bring them for you. Make sure you want the smallest pairs. Good luck with the hunt, they are worth having one...!
