Stitching & Car...

My car is fixed...YAY!
Wow, two weeks without a car.
It makes one totally dependent on others.
Rides to work.
Rides the
Credit Union, grocery store, church & lqs.
I so hate to be dependent on others.
But, it's all good now.

I did get quite a bit of stitching done while waiting
for my ride home to be done working.
At least one hour every day.
I finished block one and started block two.
Here's my block one...

The design is drawn on
Kona solid cotton in the color Bone
and then backed with muslin.
So easy to stitch on.
Doesn't that floss look great?
It's a variegated...
I think I showed you before.
But, here it is, again.

Once I sew the fabric blocks together,
there will be more stitching
(on the sewn fabric blocks)
to finish out the trees.

Before I get there, though,
I need to do some commission work.
Scrub tops, totes and t-shirt quilt.

One more day of work.
I think I can get through it.
Have a great Friday!

OH...and sure to check out my selling blog
(up on top of the sidebar...the chocolate puppy).
I have linen for sale and hope to list some wool soon!
