Today I was creating a little quilt using a piece of counted cross-stitch I did a long time ago.  In my box of “trims” I found this card with just the right lavender color to add to my little quilt.

The darker chenille trim I used as the “piping” around the edge, carefully couching it with a zig-zag stitch.

Then I used the sparkly thread to add a little pizazz to the stitching.

I can’t show the little quilt yet, as I need to finish it and save it for the June UFO Challenge.

More playing today included making another Anita’s Arrowhead block.  Two done, ???? to go.

Please note my immaculate design wall – just a few little threads here and there.
