Another Finish

I machine quilted and finished up another project. One of the baskets is sort of catawampus but I will just say it is “primitive” or an “antique” . Better finished than perfect. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

I went to the framer this afternoon and picked up these two needlework projects. The cross is a gift to my Son and Daughter-in-law. I decided that the sampler needed something more so I hemstitched, but for some reason not all of the holes are opened as they should. It might have something to do with “warp and weft”

Taking a Break

I was dusting the sewing room and sat down to take a break. Here I am fiddling around on the computer. Today I did some “seasonal changes” to the house. I finished the binding on the quilt that I just got back from the quilter. I am using it on my dining room table at present. I thought it might be a little to bright and was thinking of tea dying it. What do you think?

I am still working on my Nebraska Waves quilt from “Vintage Journey” by Jo Morton and I have started the Mary Wigham Quaker Sampler but have not stitched very much.

I am sure glad that I learned about Windows Live for posting to my blog. It has cut the time in half and the pictures stay where I put them! This is thanks to Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill.

Well, I think I have stalled long enough and better get back to the dusting. Have a great day.

Until later.
