It’s still hot and humid here and according to the weather forecast, it’s going to remain that way until the weekend. I tried working in the gardens yesterday but the mosquitoes were brutal because of the high humidity, so I retreated indoors after a short time. Now I’m not complaining as that gave me time to finish one project and begin another.
I started on a Cinderberry Stitches pattern about a week ago and I managed to complete it over the weekend. It is a mini quilt or wall hanging called A Christmas Wish. I changed some things, added a few different elements and jazzed it up with some red glass beads. Just for a change, I hand quilted around the perimeter of the design only rather than travel through the middle as I normally do. This is going to be a swap gift.
Then Mary from Quilt Hollow sent me this awesome freebie x-stitch sampler that she found in her blog travels.
You may find the link to the pattern here.
I started stitching this on Sunday night and worked on it yesterday as well.
I’m happiest when my hands are busy and I’ve got some great surprises planned for you all starting in September, so stay tuned!
