My Busy Week

Sunday saw me making washing detergent
then a lemon meringue pie
Monday i was finally back to the sewing machine to the red & black quilt
last 4 blocks made. Still time to sew & the borders were added.The quilt isn't big enough for a queen bed now. It was for a double when i first got the fabrics many years ago.

 Tuesday saw the black borders being added. But guess what? Still not big enough. Luckily i bought more fabric a couple of weeks back on the off chance i'd need it.
Wednesday the final borders added. I'm sure hoping so as i'm kinda sick of this quilt.
After lunch i put together this little hanging
made the background for Natures Journey & prepared some of the applique.
Wednesday night i finished this stitchery
& started work on the little birdie wallhanging.
Thursday i didn't have time for any stitching except at night & go this far with the birdies.
Friday i went back to finishing the last bits of applique needed for Natures Journey
& that was it as i had my GS to babysit all afternoon & most of the night. Now i'm off to a quilt show run by some friends. See you all here next week with my adventures.

Happy Stitching,

I wonder if your lemon meringue pie took as long as the recipe I've used??

I had a REALLY hard time getting past the pic of the lemon meringue - my favorite!!! Wow you get so much done. The red and black quilt is looking amazing. Love those little birdies too!

Homemade laundry detergent? That's a new one on me! But of course, the lemon meringue pie I know all about. In fact, it sounds pretty darned good right now. Or key lime pie. Hmmm.

The red and black is extraordinary. I can understand why you'd be ready to move on, but it's really beautiful. Are you going to quilt it or send it out. I love that you make your own laundry detergent. Do you make a liquid or powder? I have friends who do both.
