We went to the National Zoo this morning and saw pandas and elephants
First we went up the longest escalator EVER!
So no slow stitching today, but Friday, with 13 hours in the car, was a bonanza of hand quilting. I got most of the bottom border done on the small DJ along with a start up one side. The corner was a bit tricky to turn, and there are a few extra marks, but I think once those are washed away, it will look great. I had planned to mark the entire border before we left on our trip, but packing and laundry pulled me away, so I'll try to mark the rest before we head home again. I'm using a white clover pen and it seems to stick around pretty well.
Fruit picking in the morning with a trip to Mt Vernon.
I love visiting DC. Mount Vernon was spectacular! So much to see there. Very touched when I saw the Vietnam Wall as I grew up with that in the news. To see the Constitution made my heart beat faster. It is great to get away especially if we can spend time with family.
Sounds like you are having a great trip! Except maybe the 13 hours in the car! Looks like you made substantial quilting progress!
I forgot to say what a beautiful family you have! You are blessed!
Congratulations on surviving 13 hours in the car... and on making progress on your border quilting!
Great choices of what to see in DC. Sometime you come up you should check with the Smithsonian about behind the scenes tours of the quilt collection. You must make reservations but it is well worth it, although the guys might not like it as much as you will!
I am so jealous you can stitch in the car! It makes me violently ill to do anything. You were so productive!
que gran paseo familiar.
tu quilt precioso, en tonos azules maravillosos
I hope you enjoyed your trip! Great job on the binding too.
Beautiful! Nice to make some family memories and have time to hand sew too!
You always do such great family trips! Hope you had a great time in DC and safe travels home.
