Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! We spent some time making our rounds to the cemeteries and paying tribute to those in our family who have served in the military. It is always a humbling time. We were also called away to the hospital to say goodbye to my husband's aunt who has been fighting lung cancer. That was a very sad time, such a sweet lady. Most of the rest of the time was spent relaxing and doing some of our favorite things. Guess what today is? It is our 14th wedding anniversary! I can't believe it's been that long. You know what they say, time flies when you're having fun!
Edgar let me know via email that his win for the drawing I had arrived so now I can show a picture of it. Some of you have probably already seen it on his blog I'm sure. It was a stocking by BBD called Fourth of July and was ,of course, from the July stockings pattern. I had so much stitching one that I HAD to stitch another one! I didn't take a picture of the one that I sent Edgar as I already had a picture of the one I stitched for myself so I'm just recyling that picture.
I got the Bent Creek Patriotic Row piece done! I am excited of how it came out. It was such a quick stitch too! Thanks again Natalie!
Other than finishing off Patriotic Row, I took a stitching break to rest my eyes. In doing so , I got the rest of the blocks pieced for the 9-patch charm walk quilt. Now all I have to do is sew the blocks together, then in rows, and add the border, and I will be all done piecing the top! Using those charm packs sure make the cutting process a lot faster, which is my least favorite part of quilting.
For those of you that are signed up for the BBD stocking exchange, I will get the names out in an email later today. Thanks to all of those that were brave enough to sign up for my first exchange organizing!
That will do it for this edition of The Happy Needle Chronicles. Thank you all for stopping by and visiting today! I hope you come again real soon!
'till next time,
don't be a stranger,
