Design phase…………

In the midst of “life” (seriously ill quilty friend and Grandson #2 birthday this weekend), I have managed to come up with some thoughts/sketches for the little (19”x14”) piece I posted about here. I am thinking this will give me more opportunity to do the stitching I absolutely adore……..micro-stippling/”scribbling” (Cindy Needham’s term) with Ms Juki. IMG_3731   It’s a small piece so I’ll have to “keep a lid” on the number of motifs (not good at that!!!!).

   The other little(?) item on my agenda…..in the midst of a very miserable heat/humidity wave……..is fulfilling GS #2 request for homemade sandwich buns for his b’day gathering on Sunday. IMG_3729

  Tomorrow morning we pick up friends in Winona who have traveled by train to Seattle. I’m anxious to hear how their trip went. Trains were my transportation of choice years ago (since I did not drive til I was 21 and needed to get from St. Paul to Duluth for a job I had). Both of my grandpas were train conductors and I grew up spending much time at the St. Paul train depot. Wonderful days!!!

  Another weekend awaits and I hope you have some special summery plans. For me, Monday brings a quilt guild meeting and, I hope, this month some photos! Blessings all and “see” you back here next week………………..

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your seriously ill friend. Knowing you, you have been a great support.

    The buns, oh, the buns. They look incredibly good and I can understand why the grandson requested them.

    Interesting to hear about your train connection…

      I really do understand the “procrastinate” part! Those first few stitches are the hardest to do but once done I wonder why it took me so long to get going!!!!???!!! Hugs to you…………..
