It's done, but I am not terribly proud of my work. I am still finding it tough to machine quilt even these small items. Perhaps if the local sewing center would ever get my quilting attachments in, it would be easier. It's been over two weeks and, as I expected, I have not heard from the man. Nonetheless, I did it all by machine, even the binding.
Here is the finished product.
Here's a few of my older buttons:
William Jennings Bryan & Kern (whoever that was). They made an unsuccessful run in 1908, I believe.
I did find about an hour to get outside and tackle some of the garden work--mostly cutting down spent daisies and trimming the evergreen hedge. The weather was much nicer today.
I am watching an old Andy Griffith show as I write this.....does anyone remember the episode where Aunt Bee makes pickles? It's a classic. I 've seen it numerous times and I still laugh every time these poor guys have to eat one of the awful pickles.
Now I must go and clean up the kitchen. I didn't do much cleaning this weekend. I don't really know where all the time went. I always goes quickly.
