I have been doing a little hand stitching therapy this week. Just like Kathy, hand work is my sanity!
The binding started to get stitched down on Wednesday while watching Emily at gymnastics.
I added a row of tumblers (started while waiting on Aidan at guitar on Friday) and got 2 sets of rows stitched together in the evenings. Darn it... I switched the placement when marking the sewing seams. Now I need to make 2 of the up's. I'll be laying out 2 rows today, marking and making sure I sew them correctly as up tumblers to start this time!
I attached two rows of Dresden's together and hand stitched the back while the kids were working on dinner from a cookbook Saturday. A burger with cooked onion on top with a special sauce on grilled sour dough bread. Emily wanted my potato salad so I helped her make that. They also made a drink - a peach and orange smoothie that tasted just like an orange julius. Remember those Mom? A photo of the back of the Dresden's in the quilt as you go method.
I see myself hand stitching the last two sections together, and maybe even hand stitching some binding. What will you be hand stitching today?
Linking up with the other turtle stitchers at Kathy's Quilts. I won't be stitching outside as Kathy suggested, a wee bit too hot for me so I'll sit in my recliner with the AC vent blowing on me!
