I have worked on a variety of hand sewing projects in the past week. I finally got back to working on my Coming Home BOM designed by Sarah Fielke. There is a lot of applique to do for the next couple of steps so I am making an effort to get caught up. There are two crescent moons and two suns in the current border. I did the moons last weekend and this weekend, I am working on the suns. I appliquéd the circles onto the yellow sun rays today at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting.
Both suns are now ready to appliqué onto the corner blocks.
I was going to make the circles yellow and the sun rays magenta but my daughter gave me the idea of doing it the other way around. I like it!
I finished off the last moon out in the gazebo one evening earlier this week. It reminds me of that old song...Blue Moon...
The London Modern Guild is having their first ever quilt show in September so I spent some time this week adding hanging sleeves to my quilts for the show as I watched a movie. All three quilts are now ready for the show.
We also toured the Weltzheimer/Johnson House in Oberlin, OH. Frank Lloyd Wright was the architect. My husband and I have toured several of the houses/buildings that he designed and jumped at the chance to see another one. This one is owned by Oberlin College and is open for tours one Sunday a month.
The house was build for a family of 6 and has an interesting ball detail around the entire roof.
I immediately noticed that the ceilings were a courthouse step pattern...
While in Mansfield, we briefly walked around the gardens at Kingwood (until we had to race back to the car because it started to pour rain!) and I took this picture at the lily pond in one of the gardens. It was my favourite picture of the day!
I did some more stitches on Frank in the car on the way to and from Ohio last weekend. I need to do more cross stitching before I add some more outlining. Christine did some knitting in the car but I did not get a picture.
My daughter also did some cross stitching this week...I think the palm tree gives away the city she is working on...Miami!
Finn did not want her to do any work on her computer today...
I will be linking up with Kathy and the other slow Sunday stitchers in the morning. Take a look at the other blogs for fun and inspiration! The link is in my sidebar.
