My Fear of Queen Stitches Overcome!

Hey, I finally completed the second time around on the queen stitches I had to rip out from the basket topper.  Then I also got the ecru ones done.  It looks really cute.  I started the vines around the outside, and then did some more after the picture.

Last night I went to a bonus summer stitch-in with my EGA Chapter.  We made fabric rolls to hold our stitching to keep them clean and from being folded.  It was so easy, even for me who does not sew.  Too bad the lace I chose kept breaking the sewing thread on the machine and mucking things up.  I ended up sewing the last bit on by hand.  I finally just had to give up the fight with the machine.
