I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire but I’m getting to the bottom of the hole I think.
Huge thank you to Kati for sending me the lovely peach batik to make my fabric flower! I had no peach in my stash at all and nothing matched the show ribbon I needed to make a flower for. Kati to the rescue with this perfect fabric! I love how it turned out. I have three ribbons left to make flowers for.
Lovely peach flower for the peach show ribbon. This will be “best hand quilting – judges choice” for our November quilt show
I finally got all my string blocks into the mail for the July string swap. I’m starting to receive some back! I’ve gotten 8 blocks back so far. Here are four of them. I love seeing all of them together! It should make a nice quilt.
I’m starting to receive swap blocks from the string swap! I love these.
I pulled out my Origins jelly roll quilt using the Kimberly Einmo “Spring Fling” pattern and sewed on the last row. I squared up the edges last night to prep it for borders.
Finally have the main part of the top complete. Just need to sew up borders and stitch them on. Going to do a triple border I think.
I had to search for about half an hour trying to find out where I put all my Origins fabric. I know at one point I gathered all of it up and stuck it somewhere. I finally found it after nearly giving up. It was on my bookshelf in a deep ceramic bowl. All this fabric should make a nice border for two Origins quilts that I need to finish! One is a jelly roll race and the other is the Spring Fling that I haven’t named yet.
All my Origins by Basic Grey yardage and jelly roll leftovers! Should make a great border for two quilts I need to do.
While searching for the missing Origins fabric I located my Clover iron that I’ve been trying to find for months now.
While searching for my Origins fabric that walked off I happened across my Clover iron that’s been missing for several months. It was in a workshop box for a workshop I took way back in April!
Some sad news now, poor Bernie had to go to the vet yesterday. I thought she had a hotspot since she’s had a few this year and I saw a raw area on her behind. The vet spoke to me yesterday afternoon when I went to pick her up and explained she’d ruptured an anal gland! I didn’t even know she’d been having issues and there wasn’t any weird smell. They fixed her up and now I have to put ointment on her twice a day. She also gets pills twice a day too. It’s always an adventure trying to put topical ointment on a dog that hates to be handled. I came up with a workaround though. I empty her antibiotic capsule into a spoonful of peanut butter and hold that out while I rub the ointment on with a cotton ball. Keeps her too busy to bite me and everyone leaves with all their appendages intact.
She does have to stay in the cone for 2-3 weeks. And get monthly anal gland extraction.
She doesn’t know she has to stay in the cone for three weeks yet.
