I am clapping for myself--
I did a job today that has been on the "to-do" list forever--
I started this project at 10 am this morning--
and finished the last row of basting at 4 pm--
only took about 1/2 break total in between all this--
this quilt top is 46 x 66"--
and is alot of hand applique and hand piecing--
this was started 8 years ago--when our local quilt shop first opened--
before any of us knew what we where doing!!!!
I could see lots of "boo-boo's" as I basted this--
but was glad for them--cause I was able to see and know how much my stitching has improved since those first days!!!!
I believe there was 8 of us in the group--
I think only 2 of us finished--the other lady had hers machine quilted!!
Here is the first block of the bom that lil sister and I are doing at the local quilt shop--
Everyone is using a green green DMC floss for theirs--
Me---you know has to be different--
I am using a Sulky variegated 12wt thread in a green and teal for mine--
can't decide if I want to use the same color for them all--or use a different color of the Sulky thread for each block????
Well--we sure have had an adventure this week-
the snow and wind storms here in the US--
and that huge cyclone in AU--
Jenny is fine--thankfully--but alot are without homes in AU tonight--
between the floods and now this--my heart is really hurting for those folks!!
and a missing--Miss Gracie!!!!!
