Give it one more try ...!

The other day, I was reading a post from Carrie Nelson of La Vie en Rosie, entitled True Confessions, in which she states that she will sew while enjoying a glass of wine.  Hum.... it made me think because the last time I did that .......

Notice the stain on the white hexagon? Ya, not only did I spill and waste a glass of wine, I stained my quilt AND broke my favourite glass!  Not good! By the way, there are other stains, they just blend well with the fabric!

In all fairness, I was attempting to set up a photo shoot and not so much enjoy a glass of vino while sewing.  Okay, so I had a couple of sips..... Nonetheless, tonight, guess what?

I'm giving it another try!  I do love my wine, in a special glass of course.  What can I say, it's the French in me!

Remember that pile of quilts needing to have the binding hand sewn?  Well I finished one of the quilts that I would like to share with you.  Tah dah.....

This little embroidery pattern was sent to me in 2008 by Donna of Chookyblue, all in an attempt to get me hooked on hand embroidery.  She wasn't the only conspirator!

At first, I was going to convert the designs into one quilt, but decided that I wanted individual small quilts, each as a reminder of the wonderful friendships I have made on Blog Land.  There are a couple more tops from conspirators 2008 that are on the list.  Needless to say, they won and I'm hooked on hand embroidery! lol

Ok, so far the glass is still standing, no quilts or sewing machines have been stained ..... but it is now almost empty.  Hum.... time for a refill  lol  Hum.... how much sewing will get done tonight? lol
