This week has been fairly productive for me. I have another quilt that is finished except for some embellishment on it. Not going to say what it is as I’m going to enter it for the POM. I will say this, though, yesterday was a good day! I was going to put the binding on a quilt, a nice dark red, got it on about half-way and run out of binding. So, I look frantically for more binding, and all I have is a lighter red. Not going to work. So, DH and I go to Joann’s with the intention of buying some more binding, but in a dark green. I go and buy it, have a coupon for it and get 2 packages for only $2.92. What a great deal! NOT! I get home, open the package and it is bias tape! Right color, wrong product. They have them right next to each other, so I had grabbed the wrong one by accident. Oh well, I can use it for something else.
SO, I get ready to sew the binding on, deciding to go back to plan 2. I get the binding pinned on, the light red, and guess what?! I wind up short by about 6 inches. No more light red. So, I find the dark red and sew it on! Actually when you look at it, you can’t really tell unless it’s under a very good light! At least it is quilted and bound.
That reminds me. I was doing the quilting on this same quilt. I had a spool of green thread on top and thought that there was enough on there to finish it. I was in the zone, just zipping along and all of a sudden I notice that there is no thread in the needle. I’m thinking, did the thread break or what? No. The spool had completely run out! So, I look in my small spools of thread that I’m trying to use up before getting into the larger spools. Yes, you guessed it! NOT a single small spool of green thread to be seen anywhere. NO, I didn’t go to Joann’s though. I had a large spool of green in my bin and finished it with that!
I did finish a baby quilt except for some yo-yos that I want to make. I am going to use pastel colors with hearts and flowers shapes. What a great way to hide mistakes.
Not much else happening. I was ill earlier this week and didn’t get as much as I wanted done. Right now, I am having a cup of coffee and watching Fons & Porter, and about to go and do some sewing. We have had rain for the past couple of days and I think there is more to come. Good, we can really use it!
