Happy Independence Day America!!!

And may this year ahead strike down the dissention in the ranks of our fellow Americans and bring peace to us all!!!

It is also my birthday I am happy to report!!! I got a visit earlier this week from my son and his new bride…

They made us an overnight pit stop on their way to a vacation destination πŸ™‚ They also gifted me with a Hawthorne Supply gift card πŸ˜€ YIPPEE!!!!

Then yesterday my daughter and her fiance showed up for a weekend of celebration!!!!

Here are me and my darling daughter and her fiancΓ© I will catch in a photo before they leave πŸ™‚

In the mean time…. I finished that little area on my hand quilting…

Then I rotated the quilt in the frame…

And I made a bit of progress with this new area to stitch on….

Once I finish quilting this side I plan to mark all that is quilted already on that master plan of this quilt I printed off but it is a heavy quilt! So I am not taking it out just to see I am 2/3 or more done with the quilting on this mammoth undertaking over 6 years in the finishing!!!

I also worked on the red work bowl with rolling pin that haven’t shared recently… no picture on that till next week though… Linking all this hand quilting progress to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<<<

I just got these from my bestie…

Wool pennies in varied sizes!!!! All I have is plain black wool to make my pincushion creations with so with these I can add some zing… Thanks my Bestie ❀

She also sent some other goodies in the box with these pennies….

I am sew blessed to have her in my corner All The Time πŸ™‚ Her birthday is just the day before mine too! Usually we celebrate together but this year with my fam coming we are celebrating together in the autumn …

Brandi and Molly = LOVEπŸ₯°
My sewing room turned guest room for the week πŸ™‚

I hope you have a blessed weekend and if you are in America… Happy birthday!!!! πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ§¨πŸŽˆπŸ€© And Happy Birthday to me!!!

    I just love the quilting on your whole cloth quilt, the colored threads just bring it to life, what type of batting are you using in the quilt? The strawberry pincushion Connie gave you is so tiny! You’ll make some very pretty pincushions will the colorful wool pennies, happy stitching & a very happy birthday!
