Stitching With My Mom

While my mom was here visiting over the summer, I surprised her with my pile of "needs to be finish-finished" projects!  Yes, the pile on the ironing board was like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

She graciously accepted a few challenges and I wanted to share what she accomplished-


Gail Pan's class from 2014-ready to be quilted which I think I'll do by hand


Hand's On Design-Love My Stitching project bag=lovely!


Crabapple Hill 2015 class Stitching Makes Me Happy pillow front


Pillow back

In contrast, here is the only project I've worked on all summer-


Hillside Samplings Ann A Tarbox
My goal is to have this finished before the end of this year.

I just got back from the Shepherd's Bush retreat.  Another post soon to share all the fun!
