A little bit of sewing going on
Last night (Monday) was spent making this black and white purse for a client. She loved it, but I had to bring it home and add a cell phone pocket. I'd forgotten that she'd requested that.
This is the denim quilt I'm working on for a client. The center of the quilt is a panel from one of those flags you wave at the games. It was actually a double-sided flag so I have another panel that I will turn into a pillow.
Here you see the back of the center of the Bronco quilt. I can't believe I found the perfect orange. The sashings are just a plain navy blue, front and back.
The pile of blocks is only about half of what I will add to the center. I'm just stitching an X on the blocks to "marry" the denim and the orange flannel. I hope to have all the blocks sewn by this weekend and maybe I can start putting them all together next week. The quilt needs to be done by May, but I really don't want to put it off. Dad's doing ok right now, so I need to do as much as I can while he doesn't need me after the caregiver goes home. Once I get his lunch and visit with him for a couple of hours, I get him to bed for a nap and I come on home. Most days, that is. Sometimes I stay with him until Joe or Judy get there.
Wow, I got a bit off subject there, didn't I? Anyway, looking forward to seeing Kerrington, Rob and April on Saturday, Rob's birthday. Still wondering what I should get him for his 25th birthday. 25??!! I'm still in denial..lol
I probably won't post again until after the weekend. Then again, I may have something to say between now and then.
