My participation with others at Slow Sunday Stitching consists of choosing fabric to practice applique work. I was going to start with a heart, but I am really liking Kathy’s seed blocks and a seed/melon/orange peel would be easier to practice on before attempting the heart shape. Eventually, I would like to make Flower Pots, an applique quilt, by Kim McLean.
Above is what I chose to hand sew today, but I was sidetracked. Uh….it is not the first time. This morning I browsed a nearby outdoor antique show.
In the afternoon I had an opportunity to watch the Blue Angels fly at Selfridge Air National Guard Base. The weather was perfect for an air show. Clear blue skies with low humidity. My family was able to see the show off the base (to avoid the crowds) yet, close enough to experience a flyover. It was awesome and a thrill to watch them perform.
It was worth being sidetracked from my hand sewing on a beautiful day seeing special things.
