I like to have a few different projects going for different situations. After making a Christmas stocking for Eli, I decided I really enjoy cross-stitching and wanted another one to work on. I will pick this up while watching TV and sitting on the couch.
When I went to the quilting retreat a few weeks ago we each brought a brown bag gift for the gift exchange. This is what I received! The Fons & Porter quilters pencil is great and I didn't have one. It will really come in handy.
I am hand quilting this little doll quilt for Abigail. I don't have any deadline, so it isn't on the top of my priority list. Whenever I feel like it, I will do a little stitching on it. I just decided what to do for the border (that was being put off) and used my new pencil to mark the heart design along one side.
I made DS/DIL's large quilt with these same fabrics (Abigail's parents).
I love the backing on this little quilt.
I made this table runner out of panels that I got at a garage sale. Each square looks like a seed package that costs ten cents. I wasn't sure how I would quilt it and decided to hand quilt using perle cotton thread and larger stitches. I like the way it turned out.
We received some badly needed rain, so our grass should start doing better. I also planted a few flowers in the front - after I dug out all the weeds (not my favorite chore).
Have a great week!
