Finally, something really relaxing! Aren't these cute feathers?
I made my goal, but what a crazy way to get some UFOs off my to-do list!!! I finished all three of the quilts that I intended to show at my local quilt guild's show this weekend - just in the nick of time. Literally, I stayed up three nights in a row to almost midnight, then woke up at 5:00 a.m. to go to work (not to mention the first week of school at a new job/school -- yes, I am crazy). Thursday night I fell asleep sitting upright with a needle in my hand stitching the binding on quilt number three. I set the alarm for 4:00 a.m. and Friday morning I stitched like a madwoman until 5:45 and FINISHED it!! We had to be out of the house by 6:15 a.m. for Dean's knee surgery.
So, short story long, I loaded another carpenter star for a customer/friend and am having fun doing mindless whimsical feathers - no SID, no rulers (at least not so far), and very few thread burying episodes.
I'll have pictures of the third quilt posted soon.
