My first project finish went into the hands of the post office today and will hopefully reach my dear friend and her little girl by mid week. I spent the evening last night creating a little label for it. I haven't done any embroidery since college when I recreated a portion of Bayeux Tapestry for my Medieval Art History class. So I think I've found another area that could use some skill building.
After an hour and half of pulling weeds in my front yard I rewarded myself by finishing up a couple of Springtime themed log cabin blocks for the WERQ quilting bee that I joined in February. So far in this "Consortium of Men Who Enjoy Rigorous Quilting," we've made a block that feels similar to a Sudoku block, and now the log cabin.
|I liked the freedom to improvise that was allowed and encouraged by the March host of the WERQ Bee. I added the fun diagonal stripe to one of my logs because I thought it needed one.|
Finally, I'm checking out some lovely new blogs thanks to the Anything Goes Monday linky party hosted by Marelize at Stitch by Stitch.
