Thursday night

  Posted by Picasa

Nothin' doin' but I had to go to Ben Franklin's as soon as I got off work Thursday afternoon, winds gusting to 50 mph and all to find fabric for this tablerunner. They are going out of business and their Christmas fabric is 60% off. This is a border print that measured just right for this project. I am lovin' it! Notice the wings are intact on this one. lol

I started this piece last night around 8:30 after I got back from the gym. I was working on it at 11:00 when I decided I'd better stop because, yes, I'd made a huge mistake again. The top geese were flying in the opposite direction! So, this morning, while Jim was getting ready for work, I ripped out and re-sewed and got it just where I wanted it. If I have time this morning before I leave I'll sandwich it, but I think I'll wait 'til tonight to quilt. The other one quilted nicely, except that using the metallic thread was a challenge, as always. I'll tack the binding down today at work if time allows between clients.

It's massage time this afternoon and I can hardly wait. I had one two weeks ago and my hip has not hurt nearly as much as it had been. Of course, I had a little over a week off from the gym contraptions...hmmm...wonder if they might have something to do with that pain? Anyhoo, my head is much, much better and I have to thank Judy for "forcing" me to workout last night in spite of my objections, "I'm too tired, it's too cold, I want to quilt!" lol Once we were done, I felt much better.

Time to shower. Only a half day today so I'm looking forward to the day. Have a good one!

Cute! This would be a great one for a teacher, a child's room ~or~ my 25 yr old son who is a penguin nut! I have some Penguin fabric that I am making him jammie pants and a wallhanging. Kids, do they ever grow up?

looks like you worked out the kinks on this one--no more clipping seen on this one. Cute center fabric!
