Busywork

I'm always on the scout for a project I can take with me to stitch by hand. I'm in several stitch groups and you can get a lot done if you have a project ready to work on ...

I noticed this quilt in the antique shop in Austin - ta-da! I think it would be a great take-along project because:

A. I like it.

B. I can have the circle blocks ready and do the endless decorative stitching at stitch group. We are working with silk and silk ties these days - won't this be a good project for that.

Here's a detail shot:


And a bit of stitch inspiration:

  9. Gorgeous hand stitching-the kind that makes me wonder what else they were doing back then.
