Happy Saturday

It was a happy Saturday at my house. I machine quilted (cross-hatch) this little pieced pumpkin quilt and it is now ready for me to hand sew down the binding. My machine quilting is a little less than perfect, but it is OK with me. I like the over-all effect and will think of it as "quirky" quilting.
I used a varigated thread that had yellow, gold, orange and beige which adds to the quirky nature of this little quilt.
There was time also to work on this little piece of stitchery which is from Blackbird Designs - one of the August miniature stockings.
Finally, I made a little progress on my latest binding project.
Time went by very quickly today as I enjoyed working with needle and thread.
