I spent much of the day yesterday pondering how dependent on electricity I am, mainly because I didn’t have any. Much of my day consisted of three things — hand stitching, reading and naps. The naps weren’t planned, but were a natural occurrence due to getting up at 5 a.m., stitching the binding on a queen size quilt in a hot and humid house, and reading drowsiness.
Here’s a peek at the binding I stitched between naps. Yes — that’s the wedding quilt being finished, and just in time — the wedding is this weekend!
Today is Throwback Thursday. Four years ago this week, we had two weddings. One here in Minnesota (July 6th) and one in Canada (June 30). I remember both of them because they were family weddings, but also because it was one crazy road trip for our family. The quilt shown below was made for the Canadian wedding, our nephew Adam and his lovely wife, Jenn. They are now parents of little Benny, who is one of the cutest little guys I’ve ever seen.
Now that the power is back on, it’s back to regular programming today. I’m almost done with the sample stitching for What A Hoot Quilting, so I’ll show you some of those tomorrow.
Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation.
