We actually got a reprieve from the over 100 temperatures today. I was able to sit outside comfortably until about 1 o'clock. But I live on top of a ridge with a breeze most of the time.
I finished the stocking quilt but it is hard to stage a good picture when your yard looks like this.
We haven't had rain in I don't know how long.
I am pleased with the way this quilt turned out. The only thing I would change is that I would cross hatch in the stocking area instead of stippling. Now I can't wait to use it. I may just have to put it on a bed or over the couch so I can pretend its cold outside.
And with the pillow I made. I plan for the quilt to go on the wall above the bed and the pillow on the bed.
And the backing.
Isn't it fun!!! I have a lot of novelty Christmas fabric from 5 or 6 years ago. I don't really want to make a quilt top out of it but it is great for backs. But if I ever want to get rid of it, I will need to make some tops from it.
Oh geez! I just saw on the new where Sweetwater, TN has opened a Redneck Resort.
Don't think I could do it. Actually, people do this stuff around here all of the time. Just not me!!! I must say, the man will probably end up wealthy.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
