My time has been consumed with getting the piecing of this quilt top finished. It consists of 196 3-inch pieces, which took a lot longer than I anticipated and I cannot find the words to convey my level of happiness to be finished with the piecing!
I tossed it over the table to see how it looked with my Valentine flowers.
In between sewing bouts, I read blogs, where through the wonder of the Internet, I learned a new skill.
Not in a million years would I have thought that I would be surfing the recent updates to quilting blogs and learn how to do this...
Yes, I learned how to fold the dangling end of my TP into this lovely little fan. What fun! Now that is worthy of a Domestic Goddess label! :)I can't wait to have company over so I can test out their reaction. . . LOL. I can just hear my burly brother-in-law if he should be lucky guest number 1 (because it's only good for the first person in and then it's gone).
You can learn how to do this, too. Just visit this post at Spun Sugar Qults.
One afternoon I streamlined my morning jewelry hunt. I was storing all my costume jewelry in the little boxes they came in. The trouble was that I had to open them all to find out what was inside. That wasn't so bad when I only had a few. But as you can see I have amassed quite a collection in the past two years.
I did not even remember what I had. Now they are all out of the boxes and into clear bags so I can tell at a glance what there.
Now that I have finished the quilt, I hope to be a better blogger.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
