Spent most of this week quilting my Hearts Desire.  Two more blocks to go, and then the border.  I have stitched in the ditch and then stippled the background fabric.  I can't get it to show up in the picture, the thread is the same exact color as the background.  I haven't yet decided how I want to do the veins on the leaves.  My first thought was couching, but that seems pretty labor intensive.  I picked up some 12 wt cotton thread and I will experiment with that later today. 
I won't be able to blog next Wednesday, we are heading to New York to celebrate my mom's 100th birthday!  I will follow WOW and read all your blogs though.  I really enjoy getting to "know" everyone who posts on Esther's blog.
