My hand hurts after all that hand quilting on Wild Thing so for hand stitching projects  I'm working on a variety of different projects and won't be hand quilting any quilts for a while. 

I just finished the embroidery on a dishtowel.  This one will probably be for me and not make it to the Christmas gifts box.   A couple of cherry themed hot pads and a red crocheted dishcloth should complete the set. 

I'll probably stamp a few other dishtowels to work on when the urge strikes.  I think I need to wash up a package of towels first.  The transfers work better on laundered fabric. 

And in my bag of crochet I have a shawl I've been working on for one of the granddaughters for Christmas.  Sometimes I take it to work to work on during lunch break.  When this one is finished I'll be making a pink one for the other granddaughter.  

And finally, I'm going to start working on my version of the The 1718 Coverlet.  I want to make it all by hand like the original.  I thought it might be a good summer project for many summers to come.

have fun with the 1718 coverlet - I'm going to start the Caswell Quilt soon - I keep saying I must do another finish before I start it but I doubt I will hold off much longer :)

That's a hand piecing project to keep you busy for years and a really beautiful one too. I really like the idea of a hand piecing project for summer.
