Thanks to Rose Marie for her hanging suggestions, much better than holes in all the walls, but I have to say that I'm disappointed with the colour. Perhaps I should have used a cream or snow Kona instead of the lemon. Or perhaps I should have used a different fabric for the sashing and border, but it's extremely hard to see once it's on the wall. It just seems to blend in to nothingness. Oh well lesson learnt there. Time to move on.
So seeing as this is a new day, time for a new project, a bit more Christmas sewing. I found a wonderful pattern in a new magazine the other day that I thought I'd have a fiddle with, it needs these items to make it up and as you can guess from the photo's it's not a quilt.
Hopefully I'll be able to show some progress in a couple of days and if all goes well I can see that it could be used for several gift giving ideas.
We're still enjoying wonderful weather here in OK, today's high is mid to upper 70's, with gentle winds, our backyard is covered with fallen leaves and the squirrels are busy finding the last of the nuts on the ground getting ready for their long winter. Hopefully dh and I can get into the yard this weekend and finish up the clearing of overgrown vines and shrubs.
On the Wish List post I received quite a few comment about the sidewinder, and having thought about it more, I've decided to cross that off the list.
1. Because my machine takes plastic bobbins.
2. I can wind the bobbins from the machine. ( Just being lazy)
3. I could think of other things I'd much rather have.
Rose mentioned in a previous post about not knowing there were scissors just for rag quilts. I managed to grab a pair on the weekend and gave them a quick try out. Wonderful invention, they cut through fabric like a hot knife through butter.
I'll give them a test run when I make Hollie's rag wallet later this week, and for her rag quilt that she's requested for her graduation, but I'm thinking if they save the hands from all that squeezing of regular scissors then they are worth the $20 spent.
