So many things vie for our attention this time of year, don't they? Gardening, yard work, graduation, outdoor parties, to name a few. Over the weekend, I finally got a few things done that I'd been meaning to do for a while.
I potted a few containers with flowers, keeping it pretty simple. I also finally finished the top for the Iron Work Quilt Along.
I followed one of Sandi's suggested color schemes and just love how it turned out, so vibrant! I used a rosewood colored solid in lieu of black, which I'm happy about as well. Now it needs quilting, but that will have to wait a bit.
I need to finish the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge quilt this week. That means that today I had to (a) wash the kitchen floor, and (b) get down on said floor to pin-baste the quilt. Ugh, my knees. On the plus side, my kitchen smells like Pine Sol.
Does anyone actually enjoy basting? Because I am not even sure that is possible. And because I'm seriously thinking of hiring it done next time. Especially if these guys will do it for me.
Hey, now there's an idea: Strip basting! "Oops, you missed closing a pin. I'm sorry, sir; you will have to remove your shirt."
