I decided to get two small projects finished. The first one is the Liberty Cross Stitch that I just finished. I wanted to finish it up so it wouldn't be languishing in the closet for a couple years. I sewed borders on it and then sandwiched it like a quilt, did some stitching and bound it so I can hang it on the wall. I know the orange "Union" border is civil war fabric, and the cross stitch says 1776, but I liked how it looked. Hee Hee! It was a perfect match!
The second project is a pillow that I put together. The stitchery was something that I got from Australia - Lynne Anderson is the designer - and I traded some fabric for it, I think. It's been a while. I stitched it about 2-3 years ago and it has been in the closet ever since. I found some fabric and rick rack in my stash and it didn't take too long. Both were finished in a day. Woo Hoo!!
I have also been doing a lot of quilting and finished quilting my Kaleidoscope quilt - just have the binding to sew on, so I think I'll get it finished this weekend. Wow! I'm getting close to moving on to another project! I want to get my king size QAL quilt finished - I just need to finish the borders and then I can sandwich it and start on that quilting.
I also have some secret projects that I need to work on this summer.
Have a great weekend! I'm off to a coffee shop to knit baby caps!
