Emrie celebrated her first birthday on Sunday, and I (finally) presented her with her quilt. It matches her nursery and will drape the back of the rocker when not in use.
I also had time to do some stitching while traveling to and from Philadelphia last week. Although I had a couple WIPs I could have taken, I started a new project for the trip. I wanted something on light 28-, 30- or 32-count fabric so that it would be easier to see on the plane and in the typical hotel room with bad lighting. Both of the WIPs were on 36- and 40-count darker fabric. I also wanted something that only had a few flosses to minimize what I had to pack with me. And, lastly, I wanted a pattern that easily fit in my small, vinyl travel-stitching pouch which began life as packaging for pillow cases. (This photo shows how I pack up my stitching for travel.)
I chose a Little House Needleworks design and finished the stitching last night. Quick and easy and fun.
