Slow Sunday Stitching


Recently I had a wonderful visit with three long time friends. They are "salt of the earth" type of humans who have enhanced my life for about 20+ years. 


The weather was glorious, and the conversation was inspiring. Add a little slow stitching to that combination, and life could not be better!
I found the perfect block to stitch while we had our visit.

Life Is Beautiful Block #10



This is block #10 for my Life Is Beautiful quilt and I'll be finishing it up today.
What are you working on?

Kathy, I am getting ready to stitch Life is Beautiful and have question for you.....what are you using behind your stitching? I generally just use muslin, but noted she recommended a light weight fusible....thanks.
