Lots of corny Star Wars jokes for May the Fourth! I couldn't come up with one cornier...BUT I do remember, as a high school teenager, the original movie playing at our local theater for about three months straight, and lines of folks stretching around the building, waiting to get in! Yes, I'm that old. The rest of this post has absolutely nothing to do with space battles...
Quilty mail arrived from Texas, from my Humble Quilts' Doll Quilt Swap partner, and it was with happy anticipation that I opened the package. Many Thanks to Liz Bushong for this charming and scrappy beauty!
I just loved all the fabrics and prints Liz used in this doll quilt.
Mini liked the first border fabric a lot. or maybe she was just eyeing the 1/2" center squares.
Liz generously sent this beautiful tea towel and charm with her cards. Many thanks, indeed! Every year I have participated in this swap has brought a wonderful mini to treasure. If I ever get organized enough, I'll hang them all together in my sewing room.
I've spent a bit more time with my latest cross-stitch, Blackbird Designs' Loose Feathers. Not too much unstitching needed, but it does take concentration to count threads on the linen.
This fanciful tree has several more branches to add, but I'll work on the leaves for this portion first. I'm enjoying it very much. It is a welcome distraction from having to return to in-office work! Luckily my commute is not far and I can come home for lunch and get a few stitches in. Looking forward to playing with all the other pretty threads. :)
