Picture of Perfect Summer Sunday Morning
I spent a perfect summer Sunday morning on the back porch with my coffee, CBC Radio, a book and quilting. Not a cloud in the sky and 22°. The windows were open in the Anglican church next door, and I heard the congregation sing one of my favourite Protestant hymns. I learned from Hubby that it is Orangemen's Day, and reasoned that that was why the church bell was rung for an extraordinarily long time today.
I've got all the hand quilting done on the (still un-named) kitty's quilt. I've got the binding sewn down to the front, and even the label pinned in place. But my fingers need a day or so to recover before I can manage any more hand stitches.
I've been on a bit of a "cutting marathon". Quilty friend Roxene busted her stash of magazines and passed them on to me. I chose several scrappy patterns, and began cutting into my fabrics to assemble kits. I'm looking forward to mindless, blissful sewing and putting my accumulated stash to use.
