Since I haven't been doing the Sunday Sundry posts for a few weeks, I have random photos on my camera that haven't gone anywhere...until today. I kept thinking I'd get around to posting them somehow, but it never quite happened.
I'm mailing off my Hands2Help Charity Quilt swap fabrics to my partner today. I have had some of these in stash for a while, ever intending to put them together into some quilt creation, but it never quite materialized (ha, pun). So we'll see what my partner comes up with!
I'm working on quilting the paper pieced wall hanging. I got the backing for it sewn together on Saturday and got it basted. Started quilting it last night but when I ran out of bobbin thread, I called it quits for the night, as I was getting tired. I was quilting along to banjo music, if you can believe it, and it was really carrying me along. I hope to finish it up this afternoon.
I found a couple of quilt kits at Goodwill. I know, right? There are 22 fat quarters in each, plus 1/2 yard of binding fabric!! Not sure if I'll follow the pattern included or add them to stash. They supposedly each make a decent-sized quilt.
See the words on the sides of the box? Traditional...eclectic...yep, that's me; flip a coin!
I did a couple quick posts over at The Pyrex Collective last week, HERE and HERE.
I baked some super-size muffins in ^that^ Pyrex gravy boat. Fun!
There is a nesting pair of mallards frequenting the yard this spring. The other morning, I woke up to quack-quack-quack-ing that sounded like it was right outside my window. I got up and looked out but couldn't see anything—until I saw them fly down from the roof!
A couple Sunday mornings ago, we were doused with a several-minute hailstorm that covered the grass like snow. They were the size of peas...or maybe big Dippin' Dots...and took half the day to melt.
My husband had bought me the Steve Martin "Crow" CD for Christmas. You can hear/see him perform the title track below. It will continue to be the soundtrack to sewing this afternoon. Hope your week moves along to a peppy tune!
