Friday was my last day at work, and now the clock is ticking for our big move to Seattle. There is so much to do, but I gave myself today to have fun and do whatever. I dressed for the gym, and never made it. Oh well. I was amazed to find out how much you can get done when you don't work (and don't have kids, etc.)! Today I pieced the back of a quilt I started long ago, basted it, AND quilted it. Ridiculous. I mean, it's a pretty simple quilt, but to have such a long stretch of time to work on it was such a luxury! More pictures to follow - it's a present for someone! :) I kept reading about people who use a spoon to close their safety pins while basting and I'm totally amazed and converted! It made that slow and physically painful process so much quicker and easier! Now I'm watching Twilight and finishing the hand-stitched binding on my paintbox quilt - this is taking me forever to finish!Here's a picture of a pincushion my friend Laurie made me. What a generous person she is. I really will think of her every time I use it even when I'm very far away from her! That apple fabric is her signature. :)
Thanks for looking!
