Guess where I’ll be at Sunday around 2pm? DRIVING TO PENNSYLVANIA!
I looked at the calendar wrong – or more like, I looked at the calendar telling me that I have a speaking engagement on the 8th ---but I can’t drive all day on the 8th and be coherent for a 7pm lecture. Which means – I’m driving the 7th!
So --- can I interest you all in QuiltCam on Saturday afternoon about 2pm Eastern time? I should have the van all packed and ready by then and we should be good to go, just one day earlier than I planned. I’ll draw for the winner of the Quiltmaker Magazine issue too, on Saturday afternoon.
This last drive home my maintenance light came on, so I've got an appointment for an oil change and tire rotation on Thursday morning. The big question is – do I take hexies and finish that last 12….or take a the Nearly Insane and FINISH THAT BINDING!? I hauled it all the way to Kentucky and didn’t do a stitch by hand there.
And since blog posts without photos are not that interesting, here is a VERY cute and quick project shown at class at the Bluegrass Quilt Festival!
It looks like an ordinary shirt cuff, doesn’t it??
The raw edges on the upper edge where the shirt was cut off are turned in and stitched..then the whole thing folded over and topstitched…leaving the buttons and button hole free, and turning the cuff into a little pocket-case for “small stuff” It’s perfect for a stack of business cards, or small notions. It’s CUTE as can be! You can decorate this up too, if you want. With Christmas coming, it would be fun to whip up some of these, stick a pack of needles inside,maybe a small pair of scissors and hand them to friends as gifts!
I just thought this was so cute…
Today I’m hoping to get Dirty Dagny clean and shiny. I’ve also got a binding to go on another quilt destined for Quiltmaker – I finished the machine quilting on it last night, but you know – it’s one of those things that I can’t show you right now. I made good progress though, and I know you are going to LOVE it. Be watching in the spring!
Have a great Wednesday, Everyone!
