Embroidering napkins… 4 left to finish!

This has been a crazy busy week and I am glad to finally be able to make time to reply to each of you who left me a comment last weekend!

Above is a country road near where we live… see all the vivid hues of color??? This was an unexpected drive last Sunday!

THIS is my honey being a goofball on Monday…

Tuesday evening I think is when that really cold weather came and we have been home most of the rest of the week! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have 4 napkins left to embroider now and my parents are mailing the signed card to me for us to sign and send off with this gift when complete…. half the napkins will be for wedding party gifts… so they need them prior to the date!

I have been giving my hands a break intermittently doing house chores and hand quilting my mom’s quilt….

And the next patches over from those…

And this last photo is the “Star of David” my mom loves and has in a necklace… I will add this to the cornerstones of the quilt using just a little triangle I fashioned from a mailer of cardstock ๐Ÿ™‚

Linking this fun hand work to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching… Click HERE <<<< to see what everyone else is up to and feel free to add your own work for others to enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ Todays topic is “Simple Pleasures”!

My honey got a commission this week for a bigger indoor barn quilt block… 24″ instead of 10″ square!!! This is 1/4 of the block ๐Ÿ™‚ Not yet stained or finish coated but plain wood…

So you see there is all kinds of hand work going on here ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you all have a fabulous week ahead… thanks for stopping by!

My Halloween set of nail polish strips bid you farewell.. until next Sunday!

    Love the quilting designs! The colored threads add a touch of sparkle. Rick’s project is going to be awesome! Your fingernails coordinate with the napkins, happy stitching!

    looks like you are staying busy as always hopping from one project to the next. I do not rake leafs too much anymore – just from areas where I can’t get the mower into but I wait until all the trees are bare and that isn’t until the end of November most of the time as we have some slow to turn trees here. I hadn’t been reading all blogs for about a month between travel and then being sick so I missed your new quilt on the frame looks smaller than your usual but just as nice

    Funny pic of Rick…. still a kid at heart! I think your mom’s quilt is cute and very feminine looking. She will love it. I’ll bet you will be as happy to finish those napkins, as I will to finish my Santa. LOL Enjoy your week!

    Rickโ€™s wood quilting is fabulous! Only four napkins left, you must be so happy to be nearing the completion of this massive undertaking. We will reach our finish lines together!

    Your mom’s quilt is so joyful. Well done with getting all of those napkins completed. You are almost done. I can’t wait to see how the larger barn quilt looks. Have a great week.
