I think the song was "Rainy Days and Mondays"...but here it's Rainy Days and Tuesdays! It started pouring early this morning. A very welcoming restful sound, and I allowed myself to sleep in. BLISS! There was no way to go walk the dogs this morning. Buddy LOVES water, but Sadie? She is such a dainty NON-water dog....she didn't even want to be let outside to do her business. She searches for the driest spot she can find and then runs back to the door completely disgusted that she had to get wet in the process!
This also means that it was not a good day to get a good photo of Old Tobacco Road. Never mind..I just plopped him over the Way-too-big-tv and did what I could. I'll get better ones another day. I didn't even get a good detail shot of the quilting because the light in that room is pretty dim. Taking pics without flash just turned out yucky. With flash? Too much light. Just a bad photo day all around.
I did get a pic of the label,you can see the fun cigars! Okay, this pic is blurry too. I give up!
I took a pic of the Lil Amish Crumbie after putting the binding on. I'm taking Jeff to school in a bit..he can't ride his scooter in this kind of rain, and it isn't worth it for me to drive back and forth to get him. So while he's there, I'll be stitching the binding and sleeve down!
I've been a bit more label-ready since I took someone's advice to print out a bunch of generic ones, and just leave room for the quilt title and the date or any other note I wanted to add.
Yesterday I went to the Ben Franklin in Kernersville (Which I heard is closing! I'm not sure if it is a rumor or not, I HOPE NOT!) and picked up some embroidery needles and some black pearl cotton. Now that the Amish Crumbie is done, I want to try big stitching on something else. I hope it goes fast. I really REALLY need to spend more time completing these finished tops into quilts, instead of building more tops....but I so love to PIECE! I guess it's a good dilemma to be in.
