I have been sewing but haven't had any finishes to post or brag about. I went over to a friend's house Friday night and we sewed on her quilt. She is making a quilt for her family reunion. She was thinking she couldn't finish it in time to get it quilted so another friend and I chipped in on the sewing to help her finish. Judy had quilted a quilt for me on a rush basis, so that was the least I could do. I love to sew with friends anyway so this just gives me an excuse to get together with my friends. We had a good time Friday night. My other friend, also named Judy, went over again on Saturday and they got to keep up the sewing marathon. I had to work and could not participate in the fun. They finished the quilt top Saturday, or should I say early Sunday morning. I'll take pictures when I go over there Tuesday night and post so you can see. It is a red, white and blue patriotic applique and pieced quilt and is very cute. Judy is a Longarm quilter and will quilt it herself...We will be binding it Tuesday, I hope. Whatever, it was fun to do this and I look forward to sewing on something Tuesday night.
I worked on some hand piecing yesterday for a class I am taking. It is so nice just to sit and relax and do handwork.
I am going to take an embroidery class in August and I am looking forward to that too. I have done redwork and embroidery but I learned it on my own. This will be the first class for me on this. It's a beginner embroidery class and covers 16 different stitches. It looks like fun and alot of my friends are taking the class with me. Oh boy, I can't wait.
No new pictures to post so I will quit rambling for now, til next time...
