More Slow Stitching

Those fabric pieces from last Sunday are now sewn together to make blocks for April and May. Getting June and July prepped now.

Then I needed borders for my patriotic quilt from here. It took longer to press this top afterwards than it did to sew it. (or so it seemed)

Jim and I visited the Castle Museum in Saginaw to see a Lego display depicting buildings from Saginaw. It was amazing! I can't imagine how many hours and the skill involved in this undertaking.

Linking up with Kathy for her Slow Stitching Sunday. Have a great week!

Some Hand Piecing

I was sorting through several piles of projects (and I have plenty of them to go through) and found a BOTM project from 1997. Three blocks had been finished before it was put "in the pile" for whatever reason. The blocks were hand pieced. It was either get rid of or finish, so today I prepared the April and May blocks and will try to finish this UFO before 2016 rolls around.  The fabrics will take you on a trip down memory lane!

Also finished the first five rows for the Temecula Quilts Summer Sampler. Half way done now! Several friends and I are doing the blocks as they were in the original quilt.

I've been playing catch-up with the Temecula Quilt blog summer sew along. The fifth week was given on Monday and I'm one block shy of finishing row 4.

Also made more Time Warp Stars to catch me up on those blocks. Don't know where that shadow came from on the first photo.

            And finally, my little Hen Pecked quilt is big stitched and bound!

              Hope you all find some time to stitch or sew this week-end!

Happy 4th of July!

                                     Happy 4th of July everyone!

June was a whirlwind month of activity. We had a graduation, a wedding, a trip to Ohio and Kentucky and a surgery. Looking forward to a slower pace in July.

A couple of Time Warp Stars were added to my pile.

This is my brother, Jim with his beautiful daughter, Amy. She had an outdoor wedding with Lake Michigan as the backdrop.

On the way to the wedding, we passed this building which had us both laughing. Love the cow print awnings over the windows!

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday week-end!
