Outside my window the first roses of spring are blooming. Their beauty must be enjoyed now because summer is so hard on them.
I am thankful for the opportunity to stitch and sew and create something each day…it is soothing to my soul!
One of my favorite things is my husband’s great-grandmother’s sewing box. It was given to me a few years ago by my in-laws. It’s a little tattered and sits lop-sided since a bottom leg is missing…but it is beautiful to me.
This is how it looked the first time I peeked inside…I keep meaning to display the thread spools in a lovely glass jar…I just haven’t found the perfect jar yet…so for now I’ll keep everything safe in the box.
This weekend I’m looking forward to lots of time for handwork!!! I hope to work on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden, bind some quilts, and get some things ready for my 100th post giveaway! I have more hexagons ready to be sewn together…and I’ve made a few more pinwheel blocks for my “Cherry Turnover” quilt.
Something new I’ve been working on…yesterday I made 72 flying geese blocks and some star blocks for a new project I’ll be sharing soon (yes…another project out of Patisserie…I love it)!
I’m dreaming about finding the new issue of American Patchwork and Quilting in my mailbox today…I hope it comes soon…did you see this post (scroll down for some insider glimpses of the new issue)!
Have a wonderful day!
