Temperature Scale

At a sit and sew day today I started stitching the temperature scale for my year quilt:

And then surprised myself by getting the whole thing stitched. So when I got home I sewed it into the quilt:
I'm a beginner at embroidery. I was feeling a bit discouraged by my wonky stitching, but I think it looks good enough from a distance.

Linked to Sarah's weekly weather report for old time's sake!

Also when I got home I discovered we had a different duck:
Apparently one of the original ducks turned out to be a drake, so he's been swapped out for the little black duck in the background. Sorry about the bad photo, but it gets dark early these days. This was about 4:40 and it was already too dark to take a photo without the flash.

  5. I love that you're doing a temperature scale! What a clever idea! Numbers and letters are the hardest and it takes really small stitching (because of all the close-knit curves) to get it looking smooth. I think your embroidery looks terrific! It's funny that you mention it getting dark early and showing all those cold blues. I forget that the lower hemisphere is getting colder/darker since we're getting warmer/lighter! It's a big world made smaller by blogging (and quilting)! :)

  8. I seem to have missed quite a few of your posts. You have been busy. Gravel laying, a finished door, dishwasher in and your temp guide. Great work.

  9. You are very creative with your fabrics on the temp scale. They are fun like the penguin on a cold day. i see your are posting the first comment and checking the notify me box.
