We are finally thawed out here on Friday. When I left the shop Thursday the ice was finally melting from Tuesday’s sleet show, it was sure strange for the past few days to have had ice on the roof tops and since the sun hasn’t been out, the ice has hung around.
I wanted to give a shout out from this past Sunday, David ran the Houston marathon and he ran it in 3 hours and 58 minutes. He did a great job and the cold, cold weather was a wonderful thing for him. His time allows him to qualify to run the Boston marathon in 2019. I’m very proud of him and what he was able to accomplish. Way to go, David! I’m already mentally preparing for the Italian, seafood and cannolis that we get to indulge in!
I also wanted to show a better picture of where my Indigo Star landed. My walls space is dwindling.
I’ve been trying to finish a few things up, I have big 3 quilts to put binding on! Ugh! Nothing like a deadline to prompt me to get some things finished up. We had our Deer Park bee meeting Thursday night; I tried to get them finished before the meeting. I got the binding, sleeve and label attached on Reed’s Creek. Mission accomplished, I got it all sewn down! Wahoo! I love the quilting done by Jan DeAlmeida, she did an edge to edge “thistle theme” motif. Thank you Jan!
Next on the list to finish was my Happy Home pattern from Primitive Gatherings. I needed to finish the embroidery on the bottom and sew on the key. I got that done too!
Now it can go to finishing school for quilting! Big grin!
Next was to finish of my “Liberty Homestead” pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts. I got the label, sleeve and binding sewn down. Not all before the meeting, but all but the sleeve.
I love how the quilt turned out and I love all the colors in it. Marcia Henry quilted it and it looks great, she did a great job. Thank you Marcia!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
