With a four day quilting retreat just a few weeks away I am trying to finish up some ufos and decide what to take to keep me occupied for four fabulous days!
Today I finished quilting a top that my sister made long ago. A crib size from scraps. I used it to practice feathers and other misc designs I have been trying to perfect. I have to say that I am quite comfortable with the whole feathers thing now. Hooray!
I have also finished piecing my french scrappy circle quilt. I added one black circle with a cutout from the vintage curtains I am going to use on the back. I’m not sure if I am loving it yet, but I think once I add the black polka-dotted border, and perhaps a splash of red on the edge, it will look better.
My final project for the week was to purchase a boat load of men’s shirts from Goodwill for my retreat project. Lots of cutting left to do so I can sew like a mad woman while I’m away!
And just to let you all know, we finally found a homecoming dress for my youngest. So the evening was a success – although a bit more expensive than I would have liked! Why do the youngest children always cost the most??! Pics to come soon, as they are yet to be downloaded from the camera. ..
