and it's amazing how far behind I feel! But I'm back with newly resolved dedication to finish up even more in 2008!This adorable little guy is a Pay It Forward gift from my dear friend Annie of Quilt Til You Wilt fame *VBS* It so warm in its colors and charming in it's flavor...I just LOVE it Annie! Thank you so very much!! Sending big new Year hugs!
And I have a finish and an almost finish to share.
I've shown this one while it was being quilted. Now I have the quilting finished and have it bound, ready to be given away. It began as an all utility quilted top, but I shortened the process by finishing it up with machine quilting in the ditch.
And I have all the machine quilting done on this one except for the border. Not sure what I want in that wide border. Something curved I think. This one I backed with flannel and it's very snuggly, can't wait to sew down the binding. I've had some business to take care of the past day or so, but I did manage to get the blocks sized for that 4 patch with blue VIP. I have them "webbed" one direction and now must press before I stitch the other direction. It's coming out about 40" X 56". I'm undecided about a border. I got some red plaid shirting flannel re-washed(with a Shout Color Catcher sheet) and will use that for backing. Very soft and snuggly.
Ebby continues to retreat from the cold weather we have by sleeping most of the day on the electric blanket on the foot of my bed. I keep it turned on low just for her, and she makes good use of it.
She hid under the bed nearly the whole time my kids were here on New Years Day, a very chilly place to spend several hours. As a result, she has the sneezes. I'm keeping an eye on her, so far she's managing to just have sneezes. If her nose gets runny we'll go and see the vet. I've had some of her picture, the one in siloutte against the window, put on notecards from Shutterfly *VBS* They turned out so very nice!
Guess that's about all that is new here. I've been sorting and cutting up scraps, a few here and a few there. I think it will be a long process, as I've let them get way ahead of me...LOL So what else is new???
