Today I finished the quilting on this little table topper. It is the first time I have quilted swirls and they were much easier than I thought they would be.
There was even sunshine so I could get a great shot of it
I even got the binding sewn onto the front. I am trying a new, to me, way of doing the binding using a fancy stitch on the front. But that is a job for tomorrow.
I did re-dress Fred today. He is now wearing a navy middy in honor of my father who’s birthday is in April. When I bought it I looked all over for the white hat to go with it but never could find one. I’ll keep looking but today I realized that I don’t know how I would keep it on his head. Anyway, he has changed chairs and is now sitting on the rocking chair DH gave me as a Christmas gift.
We have been having beautiful weather. I have spent quite a lot of time on the deck with a good book. And when it has been not so nice outside, I also have been playing with EQ and EQStitch. You know, retirement has been so much fun. In a couple of months it will be 7 years since I retired and I still marvel at how much I enjoy it.
Have a good rest of the week! Gari
