We spent a lot of time on the road this weekend so I didn't get a chance to do any sewing at my machine. I hate riding in the car because it feels like such a waste of time. I have been working on this take along project for a while. These are wool applique squares that are going to be appliqued onto a large piece of black wool. It's going to be a rug to go under the table it is on when we move to the new house. I got 5 stars done over the weekend with all our riding around. I haven't decided exactly how big I want to make it yet, but realized I am getting pretty close to having enough squares.
I don't want it too big because I don't want it sticking out from under the table too much to get walked on. :o) After all the work I put into it I don't want it wear out too quickly.
This has been a very difficult week for our family. While I was in WI, my mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She was operated on and is recovering from the surgery and will be starting chemotherapy shortly. My parents live on the coast and always have a 4th of July cookout. This year my mom still wanted to have it, but obviously couldn't do much to make it happen so we all brought what was needed and still had a nice time. Not as boisterous as usual, but it was nice to be with family and celebrate. Hopefully, soon we will be celebrating my mother beating her cancer.
