Look at the table runner my bestie Connie made for us to use in our cabin this autumn!
A texture shot…
I love the mix of machine and hand quilting! Connie sourced our fave genre of fabric that were a nice price tho… and reworked them and made this and sent me a few extra! I plan to use them in making a replacement pair of our night and dayly used pillow shams 🙂
Last Sunday I finished all 12 napkins with 2 washes for each one and most of the “shedding” complete… now time to embroidery their initial on each one! Step 1: Make a template so the hand applique looks consistent thus then deciding on a font for the “C”.
I wrote the C with a chalk pencil I got from the Stencil Company with a stencil I am using on my Dad’s quilt… So far I have 4 napkins completed and ready to be washed one more time before pressing and mailing them to the lovely couple. They just celebrated 1 year of marriage. 😍🎉
The napkins I keep out on our screened porch and on warm days I work on them there.
The quiltS I work on in tandem and making good progress on both!
Above is the left side of the frame just after rolling last weekend!
Now I have 6 of the 48 motifs done on my dad’s quilt… and made good progress on the Purple Heart quilt… therefore neither loses it’s luster thus far 🙂
I snapped this candid shot to show you how I work on it so comfortably between the 3 projects… Linking my multi tasking madness to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitchers 😀
Happy with my yummy lavender new mani 🙂
Now for Rick’s progress I will try to leave the pics a bit larger 😀
Above you can see the mulch and plants we moved about and inherited from a neighbor….
Then closer up….
That ramp above (and shown below as well…) is gone now as my straight and strong legs no longer need it… I am taking walks every afternoon with my favorite neighbor 🙂 We chat up a storm and walk and have fun!
She gave us the lilies we are anxious to see bloom to determine color! I love the surprise tho too!
Hope you have enjoyed this easter visit to my blog… Please leave a comment as to your fave project I shared 🙂 Thanks so much ~ Pray for Ukraine too!
