Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))
Long time no blog - ;))
The last time we “spoke” - HERE -
My experiment seemed to be working - YAY!!
It seems to be working - YAY!!
BUT it takes time because the BASE is HUGE -
And the stitching lines are LONG -
And my quilting lines are about 3-1/2” apart -
But I’m no real hurry -
And I’m having a REALLY good time - ;))
And I was -
I forgot about the part where the lines got shorter -
As I got closer to the corner - ;))
I added more strips to the base - ;))
Following stripes is SUPER easy -
Just extend the lines - in chalk - to the ends of the base -
Marked with the pins - ;))
Added another strip to the base -
Stitched around the edge -
And trimmed off the excess fabric -
And I got the right side of the first BACK done -
Except for the corner on the right end -
Which will be covered with a chunk trimmed from the sides - ;))
And then I got some squishy, quilty mail -
A Box of Squirrels - and some plaids - courtesy of my friend LindaJ -
Of life, quilts and a cat too -
She tells you all about them - HERE - ;))
But I haven't made much progress since then - not much as in zero - nada - zilch - nor have I had a chance to play with my Box of Squirrels - but I have a really good excuse - ;))
I managed to slip in some dog vomit at the end of the hallway and smash my knee. We have laminate flooring down the hall - and it is normally not slippery when wet - but dog vomit is apparently VERY slippery and I didn't see it. I didn't bother to turn on the light to go down the hallway - why would I?? - I do it a million times a day on my way to the bathroom and hadn't slipped once until then. Anyway - hurts like a some beach - can't do much except R.I.C.E. - (Rest - Ice - Compression - Elevation) - the usual crap - and it makes me not want to do much. Thought that I would title a post A Box of Squirrels and dog vomit - but I figured people might get the wrong idea - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
