I saw the above image from one of my friends on Facebook. I saved it to share with y’all!
It has been a steadily busy week in North Carolina mountains here 🙂 Although we have weedeated… our yard this week Rick mowed and weedeated… the first official mow of the season is so exciting.. taking Molly out for walks on a flat lawn… warm air circling around us… I love it here 😀 A few pics of our yard for you then on to my stitching progress !
We have irises about to bust open in bloom too…. from the bulbs we bought in bulk last autumn. I am excited to share them hopefully next week! We have no freezes left in the forecast… so maybe they will bloom!
I am walking outside 1/2 mile most every day with my fave neighbor Theresa…. we enjoy spending time outdoors and chatting and my stability and stamina are increasing with each walk!
Now for my slow stitching progress…linking all the stitching I am sharing to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching crew HERE <<<< Come see what everyone is up to!
Here are the finished embroidered and ready when the others I am working on are done…. Napkins for my son and his wife….
I have 5 more in process of being finished and in for their final washing and pressing before sending them off in the mail to the lucky couple! This is their last initial … a cursive C …. which was their choice of monogram for these napkins!
Next up is my dad’s quilt….
I have 12 motifs done now of 48 needed before working on the outer edges … and binding!
I plan to spend more time on this quilt this week than the Purple Heart quilt to get er done! My dad has an infection in his knee… he had surgery this past week to clean it all out now he is on antibiotics IV at home for the next month… I want this quilt done in 1 month from now! Pray for his safe healing 🙂
Next up is the Purple Heart quilt…. last week I worked hard to roll it down… now I am at this motif….
Between the 1st & 2nd pinwheel is where I am here but I have moved over to finish the top of the 2nd pinwheel for later today 🙂
Our fave neighbors’ new home is almost done! They ordered the Essex Linen in “sunshine” for me to make them a set of napkins! 🙂
Also to give my hands rest when quilting I am fashioning new pillow shams for our bed… I just started on the tops…. but got most of it cut out of figured…. come back next week and I will show you but I am using the leftover hst’s from the table runner I shared last week….
Things continue to stay dicey for Ukraine though so far they are prevailing to keep their country mostly…. please pray for this country and these people!
