A day off from work is a good day indeed. Make in part of a three-day weekend that involves a day of sewing with twenty-four other women, and it is nothing short of spectacular.
Today I got Grandmother Morris finished. Sewed the rows together ever so carefully. There are a lot of points to worry about. And they all behaved. Beautifully.
After trolling the internet to get the best price for the fabric I wanted for the border, I found said best price ($8.70/yard) at The Old Country Store. Briefly I considered scheduling a drive out there for today, taking Himself along and treating him to lunch at The Kling House. Common sense prevailed, however; I ordered the fabric and it was in my mailbox when I came home from the sewing day on Saturday. I adore this border fabric. Himself thought I needed a row of white before the border and I didn't think so. I've never done this before and for this project, it works.
Oh, and there's a chicken. At the quilt day on Saturday, there were gift bags and they included chicken pin cushions.
Here's a close up of the patterns. The book, the chicken, and the patterns comprise the giveaway for post #1400. If you are interested, leave a comment and we'll see what happens. Please don't post giveaway on your blog; it's for my regular readers. Just us chickens, in a manner of speaking.
