You would think since it is Spring Break I would have plenty of time to post. But, here it is Thursday already and I feel like I haven't accomplished anything.
Monday was spent in Little Rock at the doctor's office. We left the house early enough to do some window shopping. We stopped by Pottery Barn. I love the stuff in there but it hurts to look at it -- if you know what I mean.
Then we wondered around the Williams Sonoma store and dreamed. Of course, not being much of a cook, I didn't even know what some of the gadgets were used for. But we saw a few things that we said, "One of these days".
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I got most of the quilting on Tiger Lily completed. I started to do some small stippling in the tiger lily blocks. I decided that it made the quilt too stiff and I was getting some puckering of the fabric. I think because of all of the spray starch used when I appliqued. (I may have to rethink using the spray starch method to applique.) So now I am taking the quilting out of that spot. I am glad it was only a partial block. The stitches are very small and I am having a hard time getting them out.
I have started what I hope to be the last baby quilt for awhile. I am using a Moda Bake Shop pattern called Baby Life by V and Co. Of course, I am personalizing it with the baby's name and stats.
My goal is to get both of these quilts completed before I go back to school next Monday. Then, I don't have any more deadline quilts. That I know of. lol
Well, the sun is shining this morning--after two days of nothing but rain. So, I hope to spend a little time enjoying the sunshine--whether reading a good book or working in the yard.
Edited to add: The sunshine only lasted an hour or so and then rain again. Here it is Friday evening and I wrote this post on Thursday morning. But . . . I forgot to publish it. lol
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
