I think there's a rule in blog land that says you are supposed to wait until you're finished with a project before you share it. If that's the case, you might not see much of what I work on around here. I'm a slow and steady crafter. If this were the tortoise and hare craft race, I'd be the tortoise. Or perhaps whatever is trailing behind him…..
That being said. I wanted to show you what I've been working on in bits and pieces. Here and there. A few stitches at a time…….
It's getting closer. Little by little.
See that smaller row near the middle? That is what I call the happy oops. It happens when you accidentally cut the pieces too short then scramble to make up the difference. And if one is already creatively celebrating an oops, a grey polka dot stripe in the center is most certainly in order. A quilt that was supposed to have five rows, now has six. And while I admittedly shrieked when I realized my mistake, I'm happy I came up with this solution. My big girl is happy I finally got the top stitched together. And I have one more surprise up my sleeve for you. It's my carrot on a stick to keep you wondering….. I wanted to make this quilt a bit longer, so I added some feathers. A row along the top. Eeek! They are beautiful. I can't wait to show you.
My girl wanted simple quilting. Perhaps because she really wants her quilt. Hey, she knows her mama. The good news is I am almost halfway done with the quilting! I cheated and ordered some handmade binding from this shop. Actually, let's not call it cheating. Let's call it being time thrifty and supporting a small business. That sounds so much better.
So there it is. My work in progress. (for almost a year now, yes.)
What are you working on these days?
Let's have a show & tell….. leave a link for others to visit….
Off to bed now, yawn. It's been a long day….
