Once upon a time, I was a soccer mom. I spent hours and hours at the soccer field between practices and games as well as driving all over the state of Colorado. I made the best of the time at the field with hand stitching--I got a ton of work done and it kept me from yelling quite as much. My daughter stopped playing soccer several years ago, but as a family we enjoy soccer on TV now. We sat down today to watch Iceland verses France. We were rooting for Iceland. Unfortunately, they did not win, but I managed to get a bunch of stitching in.
Today is actually cool enough to sit under a quilt--a rarity in the summer. I dug out my Love Blooms Here Quilt. I am quilting it using perle cotton #8 and chunky stitches. If the cool weather lasts, I hope to keep on working on this UFO. Be inspired by everyone's Slow Sunday Stitching here:
Friday night was Friday Night with Friends (FNwF) and I worked on some small banners that a samples for the fabric store I teach at. The banners are only 6 x 12 inches. We made kits of the patterns and fabrics and they will be sold at our local quilt show next week.
I spent the evening machine attaching the binding and then sewing it down by hand. I like the summery beach shack.
This camping one will probably be a hit, but I need to add some wool felt marshmallows on my stick for roasting. Check out what everyone else worked on here
I also completed the first step for Diane's Mystery Quilt Along, more details can be found here:
