Not Much Sewing Around Here
We were lucky enough to have a house full of family all last week. We enjoyed spending time with my sister, her husband, daughter and my mom. We managed to go ice skating, shopping, out to eat, boating on the lake, a water park, and every roller coaster at six flags. So you will understand if I say that I didn't put a single stitch in anything! They've only been gone a few hours and I miss them already. I do hope that they have safe travels home and will visit again very soon.
After they left, my husband took the kids to a movie (I usually wait to watch them at home because I find the theater to be too loud.) So in the quiet of an empty house, I stitched the block above. It's a 12" block that will be the center of my next round robin quilt. My guild is starting one in a few weeks and I am looking forward to working on the quilts as they are passed around. The best surprise is getting your own quilt back with five borders on it...and having no idea what it's going to look like.
Maybe this week will contain more quilting for me, and maybe not because my to-do list is two pages long. Wish me luck!
Enjoy every stitch,
