Some assorted slow stitching will take place today. I do love cross-stitch and there are some beautiful designs out there. This one comes from Beehive Needleworks and is a pincushion with a separate needlekeep with two of my favorite things, Poinsettias and Pomegranates. I started this years ago and am determined to get it done soon.
Also going under the needle will be stitching down the binding for my version of the Star-Crossed quilt from APQ April 2016 mag that I am making for DD Erica. She has been getting impatient for me to finish. I was stalled at the quilting stage as the front is a bright cream and the backing is a purple shot cotton with a gold overlay design that I didn't want to have white thread ruin. Finally yesterday I was able to work out a smoke invisible thread in the bobbin and thicker top thread in white. I made the final decision to abandon FMQ in favor of simply straight line grid quilting the remainder, having already done so in the chains.
