All weekend long I was sewing and stitching, determined to finish a project (which I did), though I managed a few breaks here and there ~ during these, I was playing with my kids and their friends at the park... thoroughly enjoying a yummy brunch out with Anne... working up a sweat during my first run since the marathon... and holding hands with my husband at church, no kids, yes! And then always right back to "work." That's my kind of weekend. So what did I sew?
Just a mini quilt / wall hanging. A custom ordered piece... and I was given absolutely no pointers or guidelines, which tends to make me nervous. But, I happily cut into my new fabrics for this one and I hand-quilted the whole thing. I do love the stitches around the dresden plate. I don't love all of my fabric choices. I wavered back and forth, ripped out stitches, added stitches, and now that it's done I like it, but will she?
"For the Love of Joy"... isn't that sweet? It's the name of her shop. The word "joy" is meant to be the focal point here and it certainly did seem to permeate the mood of my lovely weekend. I hope you had a nice weekend, too. And I really hope Anna likes her new wall quilt.
