Hand quilting on the brown Dresden has made progress as well. I got the petals quilted up and outlined on Sunday night and started the cross hatching in the car line on Tuesday and just have a wee little bit to go before I can start on the outer frame. Guess I need to prep the next one in maroon very soon!
Last night was busy so this post is a little late this morning. Emily had gymnastics and then my last girl scout leader meeting of the year was at 7PM. I got all my year end financial and troop reports done on Sunday so I didn't have to stress at the last minute... like I normally do! Just 2 girl meetings left and we are done until August... although we might meet once or twice over the summer for fun things like our roller skating and maybe some scrapbooking. Next Monday the girls will plan their bridging ceremony (we are breaking from the other troops at the church this year and doing our own thing) - they already decided on pizza and ice cream with some people bringing a few things to supplement it on their last meeting/bridging ceremony on the 14th. Then they can make a little tulle skirt for their bears from Build a Bear last month. They did great at the chain stitch in crochet this week. Most of the brownies got it with the hook and the daisy's were doing it as finger crochet. Some got frustrated but they all gave it a good effort for trying something new. I had some great parents volunteering to help out..... makes my life so much easier!
In fact... I borrowed Emily's new crochet hook (the troop bought each of the girls an I hook which I got at Joann's for a little over $2 each!) and grabbed some pink yarn and made this dish cloth while she was at gymnastics yesterday using just the single crochet stitch.
Here is the link to share your hearts for day 3 of the challenge!
