Snowmen in august

001

Hope snow and winter stays away for a long long time.  I am not ready for that kind of weather.  Hoping we get a long and beautiful autumn first.  But in my sewing room I am preparing for winter and Christmas.  Basting this snow man quilt out on the porch.  The pillow box is very useful for many things.

Decided to do some machin quilting in the ditch.

004

But for the outher border I want to hand quilt this cable border.  This one has always been one of my favorite quilting stencils.  Perhaps doing some quilting in the small white border too.  Have to see if I have a small stencil to quilt there.  I have plenty of quilt stencils to choose from.

Ready to do some relaxing hand quilting now.

Saying for today:
