Saturday afternoon, my husband and I spent some time in the gazebo...he read a book and I worked on my Frank Lloyd Wright counted cross stitch picture. You can see below that I have added more outlining in this corner as well as some more cross stitches in red and blue. It is easier to see the waterlilies once the outlining is done.
My daughter has been busy at work lately, but hopes to find some time this weekend to continue working on her most recent cityscape. I am still not sure which city she is doing this time...any guesses?
A colleague at work retired this week so I made her a wide open zipper pouch (pattern at Noodlehead's blog). I found out after giving it to her that her travel case had just fallen apart so the gift was timely!
I have made several of these as gifts for friends and family.
In the Spring of 2014, I took a Stitch and Flip class with Jacquie Gering. Yesterday, I finally sewed one seam in the backing and took it to the long arm quilter's house. I have had the backing for several years and I'm not really sure why I took so long getting this quilt to the finished stage. The picture above is the backing. I will do a blogpost later this week to show off the finished quilt. Cathy should have it done by Monday.
Our Japanese Lilac tree is in bloom this week. I love the creamy white flowers.
This baby robin was in my flower garden yesterday morning when I was out watering the plants. When I checked back later in the day, he was gone. I'm hoping his Mom came back to get him.
I will be linking up with Kathy on Sunday morning with the other hand stitchers/knitters/crocheters. Take a peek at what everyone is up to this week.
