Eat. Sleep. Stitch.

That's what I've been doing lately, happily stitching and designing new projects. It's been either too hot or too rainy for yard work. What fun to escape to my craft room for a few hours every day! After home chores are done, it's time to relax with my sewing machine, rotary cutter, and design board.

My latest creation, Lemon Pepper Squares, is a versatile size that can be used as a wall hanging, table topper, child-size or lap quilt. Finished dimensions will be 36" x 48". 

I'm working on the backing now, a simple All Black And White design with 4” squares left over from the front.
