Quilting The Old Year Out........
Quilting The New Year In!!
One of our favorite movies at Christmas time is "Holiday Inn" with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. It's a black and white classic, and such a hoot to watch. We watch it every year.
In the movie, there is a song for New Years where the chorus goes "Kissing the old year out, kissing the new year in....." And I've been humming it to myself and replacing the word kissing with QUILTING. I guess you know where MY one track mind goes! *LOL*
So yes..I'm trying to finish some older projects before the year gets crazy.(On top of the mystery thing!)
I finished quilting this a couple days ago,and the binding is on. I just need to sit and do the hand stitching on the binding and sleeve. I just couldn't make myself do it when all that was on the TV was FOOTBALL! It's not that I mind the football itself...it's the NOISE...the announcers, the crowds, the way the commercials are even broadcast louder than normal. It's like fingernails on a chalk board to me. But this is what I get being the only female in this household.
So TONIGHT...I'm claiming the TV for myself right after dinner, NO FOOTBALL...and I'm binding!
I had a hard time getting pics to turn out right...the color is most correct in the outdoor shot,but the sun is shining on the quilt, and you cant see it...so..between all of these, maybe you'll get the idea!
