Happy Mother's Day
Wishing any mothers out there a blessed day! I look forward to seeing my daughters and grandchildren in the driveway tomorrow. My oldest daughter Kristen and granddaughter Kyleigh came over Saturday afternoon with some yummy cupcakes and a beautiful foxglove plant, one of my favorites! They plan to bring the boys over tomorrow.
Most of my week has been spent trying to get another H2H comfort quilt done, this one for Mercyful Quilts here in Sacramento. This one consisted of a bunch of swap blocks I had leftover. I used the Star Kissed QuiltAlong from Wedding Dress Blue to make the center block. That link should provide all the steps. I really liked this block and will probably do many more. This quilt has many sized blocks and it took some doing to get it together. Then after I got the main quilt done I realized that I had put two vertical rows on wrong. So I ended up unstitching those yesterday and finally was able to assemble it properly, and add the borders. I would like to make 1 more quilt top before I quilt these three tops.
My cutting table is a mess. I have left stuff on there, as I want to cut these scraps up and sort them out in my Scrapsaver's system. I might just stuff them in a bag again. Or might wait until I finish the next quilt. Right now I am too tired to think about it.
So what I will be working on for Slow Sunday Stitching this week is something I can't really show right now, but it is my yellow project for the Stitching Sunshine Blog Hop hosted by Carla @ Creatin in the Sticks in June. Here is a tidbit.
I also have Kathy Schmitz's design from the One Stitch At a Time for May traced out to work on. I haven't start yet. I love this one!
I'll be linking up for Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts. Head on over and see what everyone has been up to! One of my favorite things to do on Sunday!
