Another reversible quilt
These pictures show the quilt I was able to finish binding at the "Quilt 'til you Wilt" session I attended last weekend. I wanted to put a reversible binding on it and so I had put it off until I had a large block of time. The blocks are from two different swaps from one of my online groups. I love them! Since I quilted each square before putting them together, it worked up really fast and easy.
Since I've been home from OKC, I've finished the top I started after the binding was on the above quilt. I've also started another top for a favorite relative. Can't say who just yet.. The most pressing project right now is to finish quilting the mystery quilt top that I made at the Amarillo retreat. It will be a gift, too. Pictures of all to come later.
The hair business has been a little slow lately. Always happens when school starts. Soon customers will begin to realize they need perms to get them through until Christmas. These things are cyclical.
I'm waiting on my sewing machine extension table. My dear brother was loading the car with all our suitcases and accidently snapped the corner off of my old one. He was so upset but, like I told him, I was needing a new one anyway. Funny how we get so used to things. I've been piecing without it for the last few days, but will need the extra room when quilting.
I have started a new little venture. E-bay! I've bought lots of things from E-bay, but I have decided to start selling a few things. For instance, I sold a handbag last night! I was so excited. We'll see how far this goes...
One more thing, I am also waiting on a new laptop! Talk about excited. Since my husband has started using the computer, we find ourselves waiting on each other for 'our turn'. lol Plus, I'm looking forward to playing with my sewing machine's features that include hooking it up to the computer and downloading embroidery patterns.
Time to get ready for work.
