New Year, New Projects
With the new year, I started a quilt for my best friend's 40th wedding anniversary. (She doesn't read my blog so there is no danger in ruining the surprise.) The quilt is a sampler quilt. I have always wanted to make one and I know she will appreciate the effort. It is surprising how difficult some squares can be to assemble. I also started embroidering a tablecloth. I will have to speed it up a little because over the holidays I spilled a glass of red wine on my lace tablecloth and the just threw it in the washing machine. It is stained. I will try bleaching it but I am not hopeful and after Hubby's seasickness on the last cruise, I don't think I can talk him into a cruise to the Virgin Islands to buy another.
