Not a lot of stitching to report around this house,
just came back from a Pilgrimage in the Holy Land,
following the steps of Jesus.
It was a very challenging tour with True Life In God.
About 700 people attended, from 60 countries.
This was my third Pilgrimage.
The next one will probably be in Jordan 2015.
I did take some sewing with me (hexagons)
but there was no spare time, the program started at six o'clock in the morning
and lasted until eleven o'clock at night.
I was exhausted when I came back home.
Now I have gathered some strength and finished 2 blocks
from Aurifil block of the month.
August block, designed by Jill Finley
September block, designed by Kimberly Einmo
You can see some more blocks at flickr
you can even join up.
Each month they pick one random winner that has
made a block from their designers and that random person receives
a Full box of Aurifil thread as the prize!
I haven't won yet, but I've got very nice 8 blocks.
This was waiting for me when I came home.
I was a winner on the Quilting Gallery blog for
Gudrun Gisladottir's (GE designs) 10 years anniversary party.
My Rainbow Dear Jane is growing slowly but surely.
