This and that in Quilt Corner

My June focus quilt project has been badly neglected, and I think it has to do with the fact that it is machine work and not hand work……..
Tomorrow is another Monday, and I promise to give my focus project at least 2 hours, and then some daily attention until the quilt top is done.

Instead I have been stitching - another block for Best Friends Forever quilt above,

and a miniature ABC sampler.
I am not sure what to do with it next, but it is up on my peg board right now, looking good :-)

I just bought this vintage coffee table table cloth on an internet auction. I love it so much and I am looking forward to do some stitching on it, but I will let it wait until the winter I think, as I have other projects that need more attention first.

Above you see a quarter of the table cloth - and from what I have been able to find out, it is from the 1960s or early 1970s,

I plan to do it with black floss only, to create a more timeless look.
If you know anything about this design and when it is from, please let me know :-)

love all this stitchery - My daughter does a lot of it - she is not a quilter

I know machine work is so much quicker but I do enjoy hand stitching far more relaxing. the cloth looks an interesting project I think I have a couple of cloths hidden away somewhere that need embroidering one day.

You really are focused on your projects. LOve the RQ block. I have the same one in my table mat that I stitched with bright colours. Yours is lovely. Love the cross stitch and what a beautiful project to do from the 1960's.
