It's been miserable cold, rainy weather here all weekend....but it's funny how that makes slow stitching all the more enjoyable...am I right?
I could sit and stitch all day when the weather is so gloomy.
Today I am working on my Queen's Garden designed by Esther Aliu. I am leading this quilt as a BOM with my local guild, with permission from Esther, of course.
I'll be presenting Block 3 in a little over a week, but I thought I'd also do the handout for the orange-peel sashing as something people could get a head-start on, if they need a little extra applique.
This morning, I worked on the orange-peels a bit (but I need to prep a bit more for that) and I went back to the centre block to add some birds...
I still have to add some leaves at the base of the flowers, which I totally didn't notice missing until someone else noticed.
It's going to look nice with the sashing...
I'm finding that working with neutrals is quite challenging for me. I think it's working out....I just have to stop second-guessing my choices!
Next weekend both my son and my nephew are getting married. I just finished the binding on my nephew's wedding quilt....for some reason it was the longest binding ever.
This quilt was a Border Creek Mystery quilt from a couple of years ago. It's nice that it's finding a home. I dropped it off yesterday so that's one thing off my to-do list for this week.
Have a wonderful day...hopefully you can find some time for some peaceful slow stitching today, especially if the weather gets you down.
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.
