Yesterday morning I finished the Wee Girl’s class quilt!
Ready for delivery!
I’m glad it’s finished!!! Now let’s see what amount it earns at the auction!
I finished the hand binding tonight- it went really fast with good pinning and many strands of thread prepared for re-threading the needle quickly.
Knit night was tonight, and although I couldn’t stay long, it was nice.
Not bad for a Tuesday!
For the past few days, at least! I’m in the quilting ZONE!
The Wee Boy’s quilt is coming alone nicely. Late last night, I ended up with this arrangement for the back.
I tend to be very set on using scraps, and only scraps, for the back, so it ends up being more work than the quilt top! Oh well.
This morning, I went to the Wee Girl’s class to help the kids with their quilt squares for their fundraising auction quilt. Then I came home and made heart appliques to apply to each square. Phew! I’m glad their class only has 21 kids.
Then, while the kids watched a movie this evening, I was able to piece together the back of the Wee Boy’s quilt. Here it’s pinned together (it took two tries!) and ready for quilting.
I was also able to do several rows of quilting, but considering the late hour, I thought it best to turn the sewing machine off, in order to not disturb the downstairs neighbors.
And I also made some moisturizer! My skin has been getting really dry lately, and the moisturizer/sunscreen I try to use in the morning only makes it worse (I blame the zinc! My face doesn’t tend to agree with moisturizers that include a decent amount of sunscreen, especially ones that include zinc). I’m trying to drink more water and wear hats and sunscreen, but I thought a super moisturizing cream can’t hurt…
Today when I dropped off the quilt squares that I zigzagged for the Wee Boy’s school auction, I noticed that there were still several bags of squares to be done. So I took another bag home. This is my favorite.
Of course, that set me on a good course to continue on the Wee Boy’s quilt, and I managed to sew all the squares into strips this evening.
