Three Day Weekend!!

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 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.
