I'm so looking forward to a three-day weekend ~ whatever shall I do? Stitch, of course! First off is to quilt some on the baby quilt. I finally figured out how I'm going to do the pinwheels so I'll start there.
Secondly, I'm going to work on this little Quaker piece I've been messing with...it was a freebie that I got from Edgar at Blacksheep's Bit of the Web a couple of years ago. I don't know where it came from and I don't believe he remembered either, but I love it. I'm stitching it in my greens, of course, WDW Sage. Edgar might have used the sage, but I can't remember. I know he used a green though. I goofed on it already. I think I'm using a piece of 40 ct, but two strands of thread so it looks too heavy, but I didn't "discover" that until I was halfway done. Too much frogging to even think about. My second goof was running out of the sage and ordering more, and the dye lots do not match. I can tell, of course ~ it's like a neon sign to me, but I don't think anybody else will ever notice. Here's a pic...
Then I've started another little piece that comes from a freebie from the Arizona Historical Society. Stitchin' Sweet Sue shared the pattern with me. I'm using a scrap of fabric from my scrap bin, probably 32 ct, and Needle Necessities #130 (Woodland Fantasy). Once I get a bit more done (like more than four lines!), I'll take a pic and share.
I'll leave you now with a pic of one of my favorite pieces, BBD's Quaker Garden, that I worked in 2008.
