The best laid plans.....once again I did not achieve my goals this week. We are too busy each evening working on the house and my stitching and quilting has suffered. I had promised a few friends to share a photo of my progress (well lack of it at the moment) on my Beatrix Potter sampler. I had set a goal to have two more motifs sewn but it has remained at the start of one as I have set this aside just for a while. We feel like the two bad mice ~ Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca ~ as we seem to be making more of a mess than anything. Why is it that things get worse before they get better when you are decorating???
My quilt group is coming again this coming Wednesday and I waited until late to work on the next border. I just did not have enough inspiration. Here is a sneak peek at the border. I am still busy sewing the blocks now that I know what I want to do. I will show you the results and the story behind this border next week.
This is the reason that I put my sampler aside. I am hand quilting this quilt. I really like the old~fashioned look to this one. It has a number of Civil War reproduction fabrics in it. I am packing it up to take to Cranberry Cottage this weekend. I hope to get a good deal of it done.
Have a wonderful and creative weekend!
Elly ~ Sorry I never got around to calling you yet. We are so busy that this week has flown by. Can you bring your agenda to the quilt evening?
