WOW for August 31, 2011

This is my first Blog and WOW post hope you will enjoy seeing what I did this week.  My family and I have been on vacation in Chicago last week we had a wonderful time visiting with my husband’s family and friends.

I decided that vacation would be the perfect opportunity to start the peaceful pathways quilt.  I marked all my word block before I left so I could hand embroider them on the plane and long car rides.  I was able to finish nine of the twelve blocks and I will work to get the rest done this week.  I outlined the words with a simple back stich and did the outer frame with a chain stich to give it a thicker look.  I like the way they are turning out.
Well as fun as vacation is I’m glad to be home.
