Little Bit of Slow Stitching


Today, only a small amount of hand sewing will be accomplished. Why? There is a quilt show in Frankenmuth, Michigan approximately 1-1/2 hours from my home.  I love quilt shows, and I am more than ready to attend one. Paula Nadelstern (famous for her kaleidoscope quilts) will be teaching several workshops. The opportunity arose that I was able to enroll in her Sunday afternoon class.

This evening, I will join the other Slow Sunday Stitches faithfully hosted by Kathy. I will hand quilt the outline of this dress as it is extra basted in order to be able to quilt without a hoop. The blue and white dot fabric reminds me of Mrs. Beasley the doll from Family Affair the cute TV Show from the late 60s-early 70s. Lol.

If you have time this week to return for a visit, I will have photos from the quilt show posted. :-)

  1. My sisters had a Ms. Beasley doll! Great memories. Enjoy the quilt show.. it has been a few years since I went to one. I think I need to remedy that this year.
