I have been working hard to finish up the quilt I am making for my Uncle. Here is a photo of him and Me probably summer 1953! He is six years older than me.
I have all the stitch-in-the-ditch and straight sewing through the homespun squares finished. In each round of muslin I am planning on doing a different free-motion design. Pebbles in the first one, jester hats in the second, loop-de-loops in the third. I am just starting the fourth round of muslin. Not sure what I will freemotion in there yet. I am loving how it is turning out. Just a sneaky-peek. I hope to be able to show a finish really soon.
Another lovely birthday gift arrived in the mail today from my sweet friend in beautiful Cape Breton..Karen of KaHolly. How cute is this. I love it so much. It is hanging by my coffeemaker so I can look at it a lot through the day.
Karen also sent me some selvedges. She knows I love them and I will use them. Thanks so much Karen.
I just realized that I didn't post a photo of the sweet little tea wallet that Karen sent me a few weeks ago. Aren't I lucky!!
I keep this in my purse so I can enjoy my favourite tea while I am out and about.
