Last week was one of those
weeks that was super busy
all for good and happy reasons.
Meet Weston Kimani Wolfe
Born May 10
7 lbs. 15 oz.
My 4th grand baby.
Stitching and sewing
definitely took a back seat, but
I had recently finished two projects.
First, were the "Sister Quilts" that I made
for my trip to the Netherlands.
The design was from this new book,
by Kim Diehl and Jo Morton.
Looking through my stash, I quickly
chose this border and then easily planned the color
scheme around it.
Vintage browns and pinks always work.
Some simple machine quilting
and these two quilts were finished
and ready to share.
Simple Friendship is an excellent book written
with the idea of exchanging blocks with friends or
easily sewing them yourself.
Both Jo and Kim share their interpretations of the same
blocks and patterns. It's always interesting
to see how different that can be.
My second finish was
working on this simple
embroidery while recently flying for a total of 22 hours.
Needless to say,
it didn't take me that long to stitch!
I had purchased the vintage linen towel at
an antique show a while ago and my friend Becky found
the darling chicks on Pinterest.
I did some crayon tinting
and the embroidery was done with Cosmos
Quick, Easy and Sweet all rolled into one.
I'm not sure how Quick and Easy
the week was for my daughter,
but for me
it was pretty Sweet!
Until Next Time-
