Beautiful!!! Your roadwork kits are always so amazing. 

I had quite a few handwork projects like that myself but sadly the all got finished and this last summer I have done trips with nothing to work on. Well we are flying to southern California on Thursday and I am happy to say I will have two handwork projects to work on!!!

Dee, you door plaque is gorgeous.  No matter what you do for finishing will only add to it.

I wish there was a hand project fairy that would do the prep work, than I would do a lot more.

that's an idea!  Though I guess that's what those precut fusible kits are, assuming you just wanted to do blanket stitch and not needle turn.

That is what I need, someone to prep my handwork. 

I am happy to say I machine sewed binding to my mini quilt which I can now hand turn.

I also marked a stencil pattern to my little hand quilting block that will be a oldest UFO, partially handquilted and I stopped like 1985....very well aged so gonna finish it as a pillow because I still like it.

I will be taking these two small projects on my long weekend trip and hope to either finish or make a lot of progress.

Wow - that is beautiful Dee!

Stunning!!!  I know how much work went into it since I'm working on an EPP project too.  It's slow going here.  You're making wonderful progress on yours.

Both tops are stunning!  Good job.  I love red, white and blue scrappy quilts, but they aren't always easy to do.  Not all blues play together well and the same thing for reds.  I don't like mixing fire engine red with crimson red, if that makes any sense.

Oh dark thirty and I am waiting to board a plane to San Diego. Too early to think about working on my quilting projects but they are with me.

Nice to finish them, isn't it?  That's what I have been working on.  Getting them all the way to binding done.

The Crisis nursery should love them.

Love "Summer at the Beach".  Those baby quilts won't take long to finish.  Go ahead and get them ready for your Crisis Nursery delivery.blush
