Ready? Set. Quilt!

The new seat covers are taking shape.

It looks so good with its dark frame.

Then the basting started.

Not many pins left.

But today is too sunshiny nice of a day to be in the basement. So out the door I go. Of course, I'll bring something to do with me.

I tagged this project. One side is completely done (Yay!) and I am now closing the front to the back. I am trying to match her closing stitches.

Don't know if you can see her stitches here. It's very crude whip-stitches. The picture was taken with my phone as I still don't have my camera. Sigh! It is gone back to the factory to see the good Canon Doctor. I miss it.

Meanwhile, let's have some fun with these ladies;

Cynthia for Oh Scraps!

Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.

I'll be there.

Until next time ....
