The kids are napping and I’m really enjoying some hand stitching on my mini princess and the pea block. I can’t wait to share with you what I have in mind for this little piece of art!

If you spend anytime on Flickr you’ve noticed a lot of really beautiful hand quilting emerging. I’ve decided to give it a try myself. Corey clued me in to Yarn Bazaar and I last weekend I ordered a variety of colors from them. These are Finca Perle Cotton, size 8.
I plan on using Anna Maria Horner’s tutorial to get started.
I also picked up the Finca color card. It’s really nice – well worth the $12. I just hate trying to match colors on the computer monitor. If anyone is looking for a thread to match a particular fabric, just let me know and if I have the fabric, I will do a comparison for you!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We are going to be doing some work outside now that it has stopped raining. Hope it is nice wherever you may be!
