Thanks to everyone for your very sage advice. I appreciate all the thoughts and suggestions.
I did get some sewing done in the car yesterday on the drive up to the cabin in Oregon. Between a book on tape and my sewing, the time flies by!
I finished the last 4 blocks for the Primitive Gatherings Summer Block of the Week:
This one has the top of its flower a bit off center but I'm not going to do it over. I don't think it'll bother me once the top is together!
I also finished another pin cushion I've been working on for ages. I have made a LOT of pin cushions the past few years, which is fun.
Here's another one, which is just about finished..just need a little more embroidery on the machine!
If you have any interest in the patterns for the two latest pin cushions, let me know and I'll be happy to send them your way!
I have also finally finished all that was left on my Penny Gathering Summer 2016 Freebie from Primitive Gatherings. I'm going to hand it over to my favorite machine quilter today at lunch so I'm looking to give away the pattern.
I made mine a little differently than the original pattern:
If you think you'd like to tackle a lot of wool appliqué ( there are 12 separate blocks plus the center and the border, as well as the very tiny half square triangles on the edges), please email me and I'll pick a winner at the end of the week.
