working on it
so, it's been close to a year in the making, but i am half way through with Anna's new bedding. i still need to quilt and bind the quilt and do some pillows. i had grand plans for a big bolster/bumper for her daybed, but i'm quickly re-evaluating my time and frankly my talents. i keep pushing this aside for other, more fun projects like some Halloween decor and costumes, and still haven't finished some of the window treatments for the house. can you say too many ongoing projects? oh well, so since my quilting skills were VERY limited and i had blindly worked my way through several baby quilts with various problems, i decided to hone my skills via books from my neighborhood library. i think they helped. after several test quilt sandwiched, i decided to quilt outlining the flowers i apliqued on some of the squares. there are 18, after 2 1/2, my machine started getting clunky and eating thread. i am told it needs to be serviced. so, i am once again on hold. maybe someday i'll actually finish this thing!
