I finished the top-stitching and stitched the name of the block for "Chicken Gumbo".
I had to get out the instruction book for my sewing machine to remind me how to program in those letters, and I let the sewing machine do the stitching for the name. That worked out pretty well, and the machine was surprisingly user friendly. These blocks are going to be terrifically fun to make.
Also, I finished the hand embroidery on the block Sherry submitted for Lisa's Retirement Quilt.
If you missed it first time around, this is the original block submitted by Sherry.
Six down, fifty to go.
That's all I have for you. I've spent the entire morning on embroidery. Time to do something less fun.
We're meeting the kids for dinner tonight to celebrate Valerie's birthday that falls on Tuesday. Looking forward to that.
