Sunday sewing

Yay!! It’s Sunday which means I have all afternoon to spend sewing and quilting! Which I know, technically, I can do that any other day as well, now I don’t have a day job, but I just love that feeling when I have a whole afternoon to do what I want. It must be a left-over from when I did go out to work- I always put away Sunday afternoon to sew. Love it, love it, love it :)
Now what will I do today? I have a number of projects on the go at the moment, and what I do have to give priority to are some pieces that I am submitting into a small exhibition that my local quilt group, the Gatton Quilters, is mounting- we are putting on a display of small quilts that we are calling Textile Treasures at the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre. The quilts will be on display for the month of June.
This piece, that I showed in a previous post, is in progress. Below is a photo of what it looked like before I started free-motion quilting.

And this is with the stitching. The quilting is not quite finished, as evidenced by the basting pins still in it!! so perhaps I should finish that so I can get on to adding further embellishment, like buttons and beads and whatever.
