Yesterday was just one of those days.
but a day where things went perfectly.
Aquarius, Let the Sunshine In.
It was a rockin' good day.
Everything was perfectly aligned.
I had a beautiful start

when one of my favorite helpers came to play.
Then in the afternoon I simply
seemed to flow from one project to another
in a perfect rhythm.
I finished hand quilting
I had already made the binding and
decided there was no reason to wait sewing it on.
Oh, my gosh.
I'm so close to being done with this
mystery quilt designed by Di Ford
that started in 2014.
The planets stayed aligned
and I knew there was no better time
to start the free embroidery pattern, "3 Cheers", that
I decided to enlarge the pattern and
will probably make it into a pillow.
It's a sweet design that reminds me of
simpler times of decorating our bikes and riding them
in the 4th of July parades back home
in Michigan where I grew up.
Meg's pattern shares
a successful way of using crayons
with your embroidery.
First, heavily color the areas
that you're going to color with white crayon
and then add the colored crayons on top. It makes the
wax and colors smoother when
you use the iron to melt it into the fabric.
Also a reminder
you have today and tomorrow
to leave a comment in my post
Because you could win
one of these awesome fabric baskets
to help me celebrate.
Everyone needs a basket
and one of these could be yours.
The day ended with a summer music concert
over at Colorado State University.
It was simply a day to
"Let the Sunshine In."
