My Summer Project
Well. you know how I love hand work. Applique and embroidery are my lifesavers. If I didn't have something to work on every evening, I would probably be five hundred pounds. I would have to start smoking! My family would tell you, I'm a much nicer person when I'm stitching. I love to sit under my apple trees in the evening (till the nasty little mosquitoes come and want to see what I'm doing) stitch and listen to the birdies sing. I can't count how many baseball games I have sat through, happily stitching. I can look at a quilt and remember what I was doing while I stitched it. So many nice memories! So, anyway, Here's what I am working on this summer. It's a really fun, whimsical pattern called "Calendula Pederdrip's Cottage". It's one of the great patterns from Meg Hawkey's Crabapple Hill designs. She is an amazing talent. I have been really enjoying her creativity in this pattern. Stay tuned for more previews of this quilt.
