Summer Fun

I guess I have been missing in action for a few weeks.  School ended, the warm summer sun has arrived, and after being cooped up all winter I've been spending time outdoors.  We have flowers in the window boxes and pumpkins that are growing like weeks.  It may be hard to keep me inside to sew after the horribly long and cold winter we had.


I started this beast after finding it on the SewMamaSew website about a month ago.  I guess when I saw "miniature medallion" I didn't really get that it was a minature with a million tiny pieces.  :)  I still have another border to attach (it has been removed twice already), and after fighting with it I decided it just needed some time to itself to think about how it was acting. :)  I'm almost ready to finish it, but I've been so busy planting, running, and just enjoying the great outdoors it may spend a little more time alone.  I do have to say the last pieced border just needs to be attached...so maybe.  A couple "to go" bags have been packed as I will have many hours to spend waiting next week.  I am hoping to do some of that hand work that I do not seem able to sit still for lately.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Kirsten, I love what you have done so far. A lot of times when I leave a stubborn block alone for awhile I do better when I come back to it too. I have this mini on my list that I want to make.

This is really pretty! I like your fabrics and placement. Our spring weather continues to be off and on. I really cool gray breezy day today. I have not planted seeds or annuals. I really hope to fill my windowboxes this weekend. Enjoy your sewing and the great outdoors ... :) Pat

It looks real pretty so far! and a little alone time might make it act better the next time you try to put it back on, lol.
