Then on June 26th, I did some stitching in

Thanks so much to all my blogger friends who post such great projects and share their ideas via tutorials with lots of closeup pics and details - and even a few youtube videos! I did have to pull out the binding on the first corner ... in spite of fantastic tutorials I still managed to mess up that first corner so it wouldn't fold over and miter correctly. (I have a really close personal relationship with my seam-ripper!)
And now ......
I can't wait for Sadie to come visit so she can play on it!
