In the afternoon Alyson and I worked on some hand stitching and I finished binding the double wedding ring. That's Alyson hand stitching in the back of the picture and that's my quilt in the front. If you would like to see more pictures of the finished double wedding ring, I shared them on Friday Finishes here.
Here's a close up of the hand quilting. I finally managed to take a half decent photo up close.
Alyson's hand project is below. She is hand piecing a quilt for her soon to be born grandchild based on a bargello quilt she saw in a restaurant. She is figuring out how to make this herself , hand cutting and hand piecing each square. Alyson travels a lot for work and takes hand work along.
As for me I will be spending todays slow stitching time in my backyard enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having. If I am really quiet the neighbourhood groundhog might come for a visit. I'll be working on the hanging sleeve for the dwr and perhaps on these hexagons made of left over pieces of Japanese fabric. Aren't they pretty?
I'm linking up to Kathy's blog. I hope everyone has a nice relaxing slow stitching day.
