BUSY LITTLE BEE--
Well--don't know about the 'little' part--
but I have been busy alllll day --
this morning it being Tuesday, was Anne's day to come--
we hand quilted and I am happy to say that the pink quilt is all done for the center--
now to decide on the outer border what to do???
we then went to lunch and on to Walmart where I could Miss Gracie some food, and her Mom some chocolate and yogurt!!!!
Back here at the 'ranch' I went into the sewing room and did not come out until after 4:30 pm--
here is the pictures to show for this afternoon's work--
Ahhh--what happened--the quilt is all balled up==
oh and it is moving!!!!
Oh I do think there is a dark colored 'monster' under it!!!!
Ohhhh--no fear it is just that Miss Gracie checking every thing out!!!
she even helped with finding a piece of batting the right size for this little quilt--
And here it is--the blue one of Home Sweet Home--
and as you can see--the top is all done, the batting and backing are with it--
so now it goes into the hand basting pile!!!
Now-remember I told you I was trying to be a Bonnie Hunter in my sewing--
by sewing on another quilt while working on the main one and using those pieces as my enders and leaders????
Well here is what I 'created' with some scraps--
a little dolly quilt--it is under 12 inches--I had the fabric pieces left over cuts from the Broken Dishes quilt I did--so just kept sewing them together and this is what I accomplished--
two quilts at the same time and no wasted thread!!!!
and now I am back to white thread on the machine so am back to working on sewing the red, pink, and white left overs as leaders and enders!!!!
Last night I got this SAL finished for Jan and Feb works--
So I can mark off another item on my "to make" list by end of the month!!!
Then at 5 pm I grabbed the laundry and ran down to the laundry room--
have been trying to get a 'turn' in since Saturday--
and my stash of clothes was at the end!!!
so that big job is done--at least for a couple days!!!!
Good night alllllll--
Hugs, Di and a silly Miss Gracie
