Then I went upstairs and dug out my scrap bins.
I kept telling myself that I could NOT start something new! Then I also telling myself that I had been so good lately and finished several UFO's and even quilted 2 quilt tops. Hehehehe!
Then I thought that maybe I would just try one block....I pulled out my old Featherweight, cleaned her up and started sewing. BTW...the old girl just turned 79 yrs old on Oct, 3rd. She was made in 1933. I bought her at a thrift store for $5 and she sews like a dream.
As I said, I only made one block, but I have tons of scraps and strings pulled for more! Oh, and I also appliqued another basket block.
Never fear, I am still going to finish up my Green Scrappy Bargello also. I actually pieced more blocks for it yesterday, but need to press them.
After finishing the quilting on my two quilts I had planned on loading another one of mine, but a friend of mine called and asked about me quilting a quilt for her. She wants to give it as a gift to her daughter. So I loaded it on and I have started the quilting on it but it is a large quilt and the panto that I am using takes a while to quilt. As you can see it is leaves and I thought a "leaf" quilting design would look nice with it, but she wanted the flowers. Hey, it's not my quilt so I just quilt it how she wants. This quilt reminds me of one that my mom made for me back around 1993/1994. I still have it and love it. It was this same pattern. Speaking of mom, she got in last night around 11pm. So I have her home for 28 days! YAY!
Don't you just love to watch your children sleep? Hunter was cuddled up on the couch napping the other day and I just kept walking by stealing kisses.
I'm off to do some housework and then back to sewing!!!
