I am expecting Girl 8 tomorrow. She will be with me Wednesday-Monday. Pictures coming soon.
I am still enjoying sorting my scraps. I think I waited so long because it would be a chore, but things have turned out just the opposite. I have found sew much inspiration now that I can see what I have.
Yesterday I finished this flimsy which will soon be on it's way to dear Cheryll for Blankets of Love.
I will quilt this as soon as I finish the one already on the machine.
I am happy with how the scraps worked out, nice soft colours for a tiny loved one.
I have also been sorting 2 1/2 inch strips: leftovers from Jelly Rolls, and many I cut myself.
I was going to sew these all in one quilt, but I have another idea now. Will get back to these soon.
My friend came over this morning. I showed her some sample quilt stitches, but she has asked me to do straight line quilting that outlines all the black squares. I will finish quilting this today.
She also brought this fabric for me to make the binding. I think it will look great on this quilt.
This celery was in the fridge for two weeks, so I really didn't think it would do anything. This is
day 8. The garden blogs say it is ready for planting when it has leaves and then it can be cut perpetually just like spring onions. Sweet. Back to quilting now. xx debbie
