I spent this afternoon working on my Pemberley quilt. This is just the center oval, and today I completed the brown edge around this center oval. I am trying to work at least once a week on this project, which is rather overwhelming if you look at the entire quilt.
This is a picture I pulled off the internet of the entire quilt, so you can see I just have completed that tiny little oval in the center, but progress is always good.
I have also started hand quilting my Star of Bethlehem quilt. This one is going to take awhile as I am doing it in a regular stitch with #40 YLI hand quilting thread. But then I am not in any hurry. I ordered some corner stencils that I am going to use to set off the blocks - working on one of those now. Will have a picture soon.

I found this sweet little tapestry bag, measures around 5" x 6". I think it is just perfect for toting an English Paper Project or embroidery project to work on at a friends house or anywhere else that I just need to take a small project. It is lined in satin, and just too irresistible to.
This morning I sat on the porch for about 5 hours, enjoying another beautiful day watching the birds at the feeders, listening to an audible book (The Great Alone) and quilting. Such a peaceful start to a day.
Also managed to fit in a little work on my Pemberley quilt - making these sweet hexagon flowers with 1/2"hexagons. I have a couple more to make and I can start appliquéing them to quilt center.
So many fun things to work on - and so little time to do it.
