Spring Break 2013: A Flimsy
After a false start or two, Spring Break 2013 is a full-fledged flimsy. I am pleased with it.
I am actually thinking of trying to machine quilt it myself, because I know what kind of quilting I want: Straight lines. I have done so very little machine quilting that I lack confidence, but we shall see. If I do machine quilt it myself, it won't be for a little while. I have to clean up my studio first.
Today I put together a very small piece for the current guild challenge. We are do something with log cabins and this morning I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The little flimsy is finished and tonight as I watch The Midwife followed by Mister Whatsisname, I'm going to hand quilt it. I believe it will ultimately be a doll quilt for a certain little girl that I know.
Yesterday the Usual Suspects (well, most of them -- a couple had escaped) were rounded up for a day of sewing down at the church. Bobbi and Pat had brought along their guild challenges, Honna was making a table runner, Kathy T-shirt quilt, and Judy and Helen were assembling bow tie quilts. I had all of the blocks for a secret project and got all of the rows assembled and about half of them put together and the rest pinned. I believe that Thursday night I will have time to get the rest of those rows sewn and the borders put on.
There's a glimmer of hope on the job-hunt front and I'll say no more about that until there is something more to say. Again, if you are tired of reading about this particular part of my life, I suggest you return in a few months when, hopefully, my life will be more stable. Critical, scolding comments really don't help me in any way.
