I know I haven't posted stitching update recently so thought I'd take a minute and show you what I've been doing when not quilting (or working).
Next up - another biggie I am working....why, oh, why do I have so many biggies going? I haven't touched Ann Dale in forever!
A Maryland Inspiration by Heart's Ease....she is certainly a fun stitch!
A close up - that little motif just above the carnations is a bitch. I think there are six colors in that bugger - and there are three different ones. Three done/three to go. The over one in the cartouche below wasn't as hard!
I am doing a smallish too - with no color changes. I guess I consider it my easy stitch for nights when I need that needle and thread therapy but don't want to think too hard... Birds & Berries Antique Alphabet on a piece of sale/stash linen...with Gloriana "Topiary". Copied the thread color from one of my friends, Paulette...she did this too and it was stunning!
Well, have to go get a shower and gather my stuff. I am headed over to my friend, Robin's, to start a quilt we both purchased at the recent quilt show. She bought the pattern and has tons of that type of fabric in her stash to kit one up for herself; I bought the kit. We hope to get her fabrics picked out today and perhaps start the cutting. I will show progress - and some other quilting items soon.
Have a great holiday weekend to my U.S. followers. I know I sure am glad to have Monday as a paid day off. Cooking out with the husband and maybe visiting with my sewing machine. I love short weeks, but have to get payroll done in a short time (usually takes me Monday and Tuesday) and this week I only have Tuesday and I have continuing computer issues and the techs are working on my computer again Tuesday afternoon - wish me luck!
Do something fun!
