Serendipity – Block 6 (Flying Geese block 2)

Flying Geese Block 2



Hi everyone. New month…new block. I just love this one. So here it is Serendipity – Geese Block 2.

Oh Boy, did I have fun with hand quilting last week!  I felt a physical sense of loss after I was done. Yet also, strangely enough, relief.  It’s always nice when a chore turns out to be so much fun! I can’t wait for the next block to be finished. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sewing machine.  But we are not always on the best of terms.  And wrestling a bed-size quilt into a little 6-inch space doesn’t thrill me.  Hand work just seems to suit me better.  Although, I’ve noticed that I’m like a child and have to be entertained at every moment, so either the TV is on, or the radio, or I’m listening to a book, whatever. When the kids were small (and loud), I used to crave hand-stitching for the quiet and to escape.  Now that they’re almost grown, I go crazy when it’s too quiet and crave background noise. Too funny!  But stitching is still an escape.

I hope that the change of seasons brings welcome relief to you.  I know it will for us.  Yesterday was 104 degrees, so I’m looking forward to cooler weather.

Happy Stitching,
