So, now try son and family are back home and we are back to FaceTime, and I am stitching away. I have made great progress on Corsica River. I am really pleased with how far I have come in the last month. First up, a picture of progress around August 1st ......
I have run a basting stitch down the right hand. It is so nice to have a definitive boundary along the right.
And now a picture of where I am today. I have all the backstitch in for this row and am moving along with the Assisi.
And last but not least, I finally was able to get the last of my quilting in on my son's quilt with my daughter helping guide the weight of the fabric through the machine. So much for that fantasy I had that I would run a seam each night......by that wonderful train of thought I'd been quilted, bounded, washed, dried, gifted and be halfway through another quilt by now. But alas, I now have attached the binding and have the long task of hand sewing the binding ahead of me. I have sewn only about 3 inches but I have started! This will be a welcomed task come cool fall evenings.
