Finally Sewing!

As promised finally some sewing. I took my bears away to quilt and enjoyed quilting in the outdoors.
I have managed to quilt 5 blocks. I decided to just quilt in vertical lines and a little ditch quilting.
I am quite happy with how it looks and doesn't take away from the stitchery too much. Don't you just love scrappies!
The Bears were very patient while I finished off the quilting on my last Secret Sewing project....just the binding to go. Woo hoo!
Short and sweet today folks. I hope you are enjoying your day.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
