My design wall continues to be empty. This is my ironing board with parts to a Turkey Tracks block on it, one of the blocks for the Eleanor Burns BOM at my LQS and due Thursday. As anyone can see this has not been a productive week in the studio.
When it started to warm up (yippee!!) I spent a couple of afternoons sitting in the sun reading and that was wonderful. I really like my Nook and I love that I can “sample” books before I decide if I want to buy/read them. But I don’t think I am going to keep the subscription to the newspaper as it is not as much fun to read as a regular paper.
This first picture is one of the four bear's paw blocks. In this picture the sashing isn't quilted but that is also done now.
I must say that this is the most different quilting I have done and I’m pretty sure I will be using these quilting ideas again. Right now, however, I have to watch the beginning of the class video again so I can remember what we did on the top border. Have you ever had the problem of not remembering what you quilted on top? This happened to me on my very first quilt so I now try keeping pictures of what I have already quilted so the bottom can match the top.
And I guess the most important thing that has happened this week is that we celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary. It was yesterday but we began our celebration on Friday by going out to eat and to the movies: It’s Complicated. What a hoot and was even funnier that we were watching a movie about divorce and an affair while we were celebrating our LENGTHY togetherness.
