Since the day was so cloudy and dreary I spent the day in the shop finishing up as many things as I could, piecing backs and designating fabrics to projects. Whew! Here are a few of my “finishes”:
I finished pressing this one – just look at this back with all of those seams! I am so relieved this is going to the quilting machine soon.
I made the binding for this quilt and stored it in the same bag.
This really old applique piece didn’t have borders so that was next and the backing and the binding are stored with it. This one actually went to Sue to quilt and I visited with my buddy Dougal while I was there.
Another small quilt is already on the longarm to be quilted tomorrow. No picture tonight – sorry.
The last pieced white border was added to this blue and white Feathered Tee quilt and it is ready to be quilted.
Remember Jill’s quilt? I had to piece the last border which has now been added. I still have to prepare the backing but I have the fabric on hand.
Of course you knew Hazel would lay on it, right?
I am going to consider all of these close finishes as my Dirty Dozen #2 for April.
I also have two table runners to quilt and 16 blocks sitting here in front of me to put together. So many of these projects will be going to our sale on May 7-8 at Connie’s house in Garner. I am packaging fabric as fast as I can – wonderful, beautiful, perfect half yards of fabric that I’ll never get used before I die! And not only that – we’re sick of those colors and want new colors! Haha!
Made chicken and rice for Telly and Siri and maybe tomorrow I can do some more cleanup outside. I know the hydrangeas are shooting up green leaves and need to be uncovered.
I’m hoping to hire some kids from church to haul big tables from the haymow into Connie’s house for the sale. I hope if you’re anywhere near Garner, Iowa that you will come to the sale May 7-8. Right now I’m so tired I can’t even think about how much work is still ahead of me before then.
Here’s Telly tonight – she is literally acting completely normal but remember, she’s on liver meds for two weeks and then the vet will reassess. I intend to make life as good as I can for Telly for as long as she’s with us. I know you all agree and thank you!
The sheet is over her chair which is a dark solid red – not exactly a good choice for a household that has two shedding white dogs!
Church tomorrow morning – the adult choir does not sing on the second Sunday but the children’s choir does – it’s always an easy Sunday for me. And I am looking forward to it!
