I had to show you the backing. Kathie sent me this shortly after we met blogging and I thought it would be the perfect beautiful piece for the back.
Because the hst are busy enough I machine quilted the rows between them, then handquilted the center using this stencil. I didn't really want more straight lines.
Here's another project I'm not quite ready to show. I'm handstitching the binding down so that means I'm very close to a FINISH!! Woo-Hoo!
I brought my niece and nephew into Portland on Friday for a day of school shopping. We left the house at 6:30AM and returned home at 10PM! When they lived with us a few years ago shopping was a bit easier. Now that Hannah is 17 and Zack 13 it takes a bit more time. I was exhausted, but it was fun to spend the day with them. They lived with hubby & I for 5 years and I don't get to spend near as much time with them as I'd like to.
