Yesterday was all about hand work! I finished quilting the first block of Lollypop Trees - made this photo big so hopefully you can see the quilting.

Last night I began work on the second block. I decide to put my first initial, 'J', in the quilting. Can you see it? It's a bit subtle...wondering if I should outline it with a chain stitch? What do you think?

This is typical around our house...I was eating breakfast..and someone wanted a bite...

I also worked on my needlepoint yesterday and basted a few hexies.

I think I need to give my hands a rest today... so I'll work on something else. Hmmm...maybe I will cut out the next pieces for my Allietare. And maybe some hourglass blocks? We'll see.

Have a great day!


  1. I see the J!!!! I think you should keep it the way it is. The red thread is perfect. Just a nice 'secret' and when you are with folks who are admiring it, ask them if they see it!! I love hand work like this...just adds so much to the piece!!!

  2. I see the J, and think it should stay as it is. Things like this should be subtle and make the historians really search. =) Maybe put the "16" in for the year somewhere, too, just a little more touch of mystery for them. =) It's looking great!
