And in between all of the fun stuff, I have been sewing, a little bit!
I taught the girls to embroider, so I decided to do a little bit myself.
I fused the hearts on then hand appliqued them with a blanket stitch. I machine embroidered my name and city on the back. I have 3 more in the works. I will take pictures to share with you before sending them next month.
And finally, I cleaned out and organized my fabric cupboard. Boy did that feel good! I used this tutorial to arrange my yardage and then I bought plastic bins at Home Depot (at 97 cents each) and sorted the big pieces by colour. My fat quarters are in 2 bins all neatly folded. Now I need to go buy one more BIG bin for my scraps because they don't seem to fit in the small ones anymore. I think 2014 will be the year of the scrap quilts!
Hope you are having a great summer too!
