It's A Linen Quilting Sunday

Oh I do love Sundays...  and Saturdays... 

One day, when I retire, will life be a long string of Saturdays and Sundays????  oh my, that sounds lovely.  

Today I am quilting on this lovely..................remember this piece?  It's a Madeira linen tablecloth... and it's just beautiful..


I put in double batting - a very thin cotton, and then a layer of wool, so the quilting is really well-defined.
 It will take a while to stitch around all the cutwork and the embroidery... but it is so beautiful I don't mind at all...
While I am stitching, I am trying to decide on a name... this piece doesn't yet have a name... 

I have also put together a couple of charity quilts - I found these blocks while cleaning out a drawer, and they quickly became this cheerful top.

 and this modern-looking crumb block piece that now needs some binding on it!

Well - have you finished your taxes?  I have not , and they are strewn across the dining room table - so I better go make some progress on that little task !

Be back to sewing later...

Happy Sewin Sunday

Kate
