One of my favourite summer things is to prepare is a take along hand quilting project. It doesn't require many supplies, it's easily portable and does not require much brain power.
I started quilting with a gold YLI thread but I didn't like how the centre looked.
So I removed the circle of stitches in the middle, finished outlining the star, and then started using some perle cotton #8. Much better. The quilting design is starting to make me happier now. I'll add more stitches today and see how it comes along.
I'm also very close to finishing the words on my embroidery meditation - just need to finish the word "difference" and I'm moving on to the flowers!
What are you hand stitching today?
