Empty Hoop Syndrome

My hoop has been empty for quite some time, sitting quietly in the corner just waiting for a new quilt to be loaded.

Late last fall I had Roberta baste my Candied Hexagons and it too has been waiting patiently for a date with the hoop, but I just wasn't prepared to get that going over the holidays - too much on the go.

But today's the day. After a great walk in the snow I've now loaded it and I'm ready for a little playoff football and a little hand stitching. These lines of stitching are the basting - I still have to figure out how I'm going to quilt it......M

That's the question that usually stale me on a project; how to quilt it! Hope the night will bring you inspiration. Good luck ;^)

You and I are thinking alike. I just put my big quilting project in my hoop tonight as well. Happy quilting!

OH that hoop was looking very sad and will be so happy to have a quilt in it today!
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!
