 Preparation for hand piecing is a rather slow process considering I usually need to convert the instructions into determining the correct measurements and making templates. Once the fabric pieces are traced and cut the fun begins. This Civil War quilt is the largest "little" quilt I have made and finally I can see it coming together.

I am about to embark on a needle turning adventure with this stitchery block I completed.

The next stitchery is half done.

Now I am itching to make some projects from Primitive Quilts magazine that I recently subscribed to. I also bought my first crochet magazine which has heaps of lovely projects in it with instructions on various crochet stitches. So, it looks like some more crocheting will be happening soon.

I have read 3 books this month. 2 light reads and one biographical book. I have always had a fascination to learn more about Margaret Brown aka Molly Brown. What an incredible woman!
Well, I'm off to get some stitching done. Angel Blessings to you all.
