Weekend sewing






As I said in my last post, I didn't get much sewing done this weekend. I will show you what I did accomplish - not much but still very satisfying.

From top to bottom:

First finished mid-century album block
Last Heirloom Stitches block - house appliqué is almost finished
Pieced Pine - not the best picture but gives you the idea
Mystery Block - not the best picture either - I think my camera setting was wrong
Quilt center - all but the final appliqué block

I hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Easter yesterday. I cooked dinner for Rick and Rebecca and we watched the DVD of their new son. They fly to Guatemala on Wednesday for their first and only visit with him. The next 4-7 months will be long for all of us. I wish I could show you a picture of him - he is so cute! - but we aren't allowed to post pictures of him on the Internet until they bring him home and he's really theirs.

Wow - this adoption process is really something. I hope their trip goes well - so cool that we have such great technology now with the DVD - and p.s. I love your heirlook blocks

As Rick and Rebecca start their journey to meet their son, I'm sure they will be traveling with a very happy heart. I wish them safe travels and a joyous meeting!

I love all the sewing you've been doing, Patty.

Here's to hoping the time flies by quickly and you have that little fella in your arms soon.

I can understand not wanting his picture on the web. Hope the red tape gets through quickly and he's home for good soon!

The projects are coming along very well!

I love that pieced pine tree! Everything looks wonderful. Oh is it going to be hard for you for the next 7 months!

Patti, do you trim away behind the applique' on a block like the Mid Century album block? I can't decide if I want to trim away behind my Hawaiian applique motifs or not? :D
