I'll start with the good stuff first. Last night Richard put up the door to the main bath. We didn't have any interior doors up and I was so excited to have a door on the bathroom. That sure beats the quilt that I had hanging over the doorway.
I tried to take a photo of it but it was hard to get the door at the right angle since it is down the hallway. I had to take the photo straight in front of it and I couldn't get the bottom panel, just the top. I also had a hard time with the flash on the doorknob. I'll try to get the whole door later. I love the antique hardware on it. Did I tell you that I have skeleton keys to fit the doors? I love the wood tones on these doors too.
I also received more pillowcases! I sure hope that I get these right because Hunter pulled them out of the packages to look at them and I'm not sure that I got which ones go with what name. So if I don't, please correct me. This first set is from, Faye in MI. She even sent a little book along. I'm sure the books will be greatly appreciated too. Thanks Faye!!
This second set is from, Carline in WA. She even sent along a piece of fabric for me. Thanks so much, Carline!! All of these pillowcases will be greatly appreciated. In a few days I will post the big stack that we have. I can't wait to deliver them in a few weeks.
Now it starts going down hill from here....
Yesterday Hunter got off of the bus and was sick. Again!! This is the second time in the past few weeks. He was running a fever and he just walked in the door and hit the couch. I gave him some Motrin and he ended up sleeping until 8pm. That is not like him because most of the time, Motrin hypes him up. So this morning he was fevered again and I took him to the doctor instead of sending him to school. He seemed to be feeling a little better tonight.
After everyone went to bed a few hours ago, I wasn't sleepy so I decided to go upstairs to my sewing room. That was a mistake. Actually it started off pretty good but quickly went down hill.
I finished up a few more blocks to my Rocky Road to Kansas. I now have 20 out of the 30 blocks needed. I was pleased with that.
Oh before I go on, I have another quilt on the frame. It's not mine but I sure wish it was. It is very pretty. It is a big one measuring in at 102" square!!! I'll just quilt on it a little at a time. I couldn't quilt on it tonight because my sewing room is directly over the master bedroom and it will wake Richard up. I know you really can't tell that much about it here but I have just started the quilting on it.
Now here is the bad part....UGH! Do you remember in my last post that I was so excited to finish up all of my Green Scrappy Bargello blocks? Well....
Due to lack of attention or brains, I really messed them up!! I didn't even notice it until a little while ago when I finished those Rocky Road to Kansas sections and decided that I would start sewing the green blocks together.
Do you see anything wrong with the photo below?
Yep! My blocks are NOT the same size! When I did these last sets of blocks over the weekend, I forgot to change out the foot on my machine and was in too big of a hurry to notice that they were NOT the right size. :( They are NOT even square! They are half an inch longer than they are wide.
At this point, I just threw my hands up and came downstairs. I have enough of the right sized blocks to make a 4x6 setting but I wanted a big quilt, not a lap quilt. The way it looks, I'm going to have 2 lap quilts. I figure that I can take the remaining rectangle looking blocks and keep them all turned the same way and make a lap quilt with those, even though that is not what I wanted. At this point, I don't think I could stomach taking all of those seems apart and redoing the blocks. I guess I'll sleep on it and deal with it tomorrow...maybe. Good night...
