I haven't been doing much in the way of stitching lately. I've taken some time to work on my family tree and I've been having a great time with that despite being so incredibly stuck on my 3rd great grandmother!
I've also taken some time to do some reading. There's been a lot of books on my "want to read" list so every afternoon around 3:30, I make a cup of tea and read a few chapters.
I love history so my current read is "Killing Lincoln" by Bill O'Reilly. This also helps to put me in the 1800's "state of mind" which is where I'm focused right now on the family tree.
In thinking about when I get back to stitching, I thought I'd start working up a few seam treatment patterns. Most of you know that I mostly use Waste Canvas to embroider the seams on my crazy quilts and when I get a bee in my bonnet about some new ones, I chart them out on my computer.
For today, I have 3 flower borders that I thought I would share here in case I have any waste canvas girls out there!
