Happy 5th of July!

This is the day everyone sleeps in after staying up to watch fireworks. I slept in a whole 3 hours, til 8am! Hahaha.
So far I have not got much to show for the amount of time between posts. I currently have an hour and a half commute, both ways, to work. This has prevented me from doing much sewing when I get home. I can sew when we are slow at work, which is nice. I have started the 2nd Christmas stocking and am almost up to the point where I can start assembly. (I always embroider and bead everything first)
This quilt went on vacation with me(I am posting from my in laws). I have gotten a large part of it quilted, but the thread blends in so well that you can not really tell the difference.
I am also working on a very small, Sunbonnet Sue, coaster/table runner for my desk. I will post pictures of that when it is finished. Possibly next weekend if I can find the time to sandwich it during the week.


  1. Happy 5th of July! Our big local fireworks display is tonight as the hurricane soaked us last night as it swept by out to sea ... :) Pat

  2. The quilt is looking great !!

  3. Congratulations on your hand quilting Emily. Your little quilt is darling!. Tell me, what thread do you use for that? I've only done a bit of hand quilting and wondered what works best for others. Thanks so much.
