This is what my mystery quilt looks like now , see those four patch on the very bottom , that is what I have been sewing lately and I have completed the border and it is sewn on , sorry I couldn't get a photo of the whole thing , no where to lay it out that is large enough and I wasn't brave enough to go out in the snow ;-) I am super pleased with how this is working out , the borders fit to a T , no fudging , whew . Now the next round is to add a narrow border , no problem there but then the final borders were to be a braid border , well I have made the decision that I will not make the braid as much as I love that look I don't have the desire to do all that cutting and piecing , I want to get this finished and quilted so I will add just fabric borders and hopefully that will look just fine . I am slow as a snail these days so it does feel good to have some progress . Thanks to Darlene for providing this quilt pattern for us , I have thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and I will show the final quilt once I get those borders sewn on .
I also want to share a postcard I completed , I had printed off this adorable stitchery that was designed by the very talented Michelle of Rag-tag Stitchin and was a free pattern on her blog last year .
Easter Blessings , I stitched it then used my trusty crayons to give it some extra dimension and this card will be sent to my Mom when Easter rolls around , she doesn't have a computer so I am safe showing this . Thanks so much Michelle , this was a perfect size for my postcard and I enjoyed stitching it . Mom really enjoys receiving my postcards and has requested me to make one so she can send it to her long time friend from England for Easter so I will have to get busy and do that so she will have plenty of time to get it mailed off . Here is another Easter postcard I recently made but this one has been spoken for .
A little bunny with a basket of colorful eggs , a little tricky stitching around those tiny pieces ;-)
Well that is it for me for today , thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is extra special doing something you love . I am linking up today to the Needle and Thread Network , won't you stop by and see what others have been up to this week .
