Finally ... I was able to spend some time with my needle and thread on Saturday. I'm sure they missed me ... I know I missed them! Ha!
I was able to move my hoop yesterday ... of course, I've got several more moves to make before I can call this quilt done, but slow and steady wins the race, right? Besides, as I always say, if I wanted fast, I'd go to Target and buy a quilt off the shelf. ;-)
I enjoyed the quilt show yesterday morning ... I was encouraged to see several hand quilted quilts. I would have liked to have taken a few photos to share ... but photos weren't allowed. :-(
My first issue of Primitive Quilts arrived ... I love traditional blocks from what I call primitive fabrics (like Kansas Troubles). I saw an appliquéd pillow in the magazine ... I've never done any appliqué work although I would like to learn how. This pillow was done in wool, although I think that I'd like to try it with cotton. Its gentle curves and primitive nature make me wonder if this might be a good beginning appliqué project.
Our weather was 180 degrees different Saturday from Friday ... windy, cold, overcast ... ugh. Thankfully the sun and warmer weather returns today, although we won't be able to enjoy it ... we will be inside all day at the rescheduled swim meet.
Speaking of, the meet takes place about an hour and a half from here, so I've got my hexagon project all packed up for some stitching en route to the meet ... and between events ... I'm going to link up with Kathy over at Slow Sunday Stitching.
Have a blessed Sunday!
