I'm finally up kicking again! :)
As if not the flu was enough - and waste of time not feeling well - I caught that darn gastroenteritis bug! :( Waste of time again, not able to sew one stitch in almost one week! But now I'm much better and hope it continues to the even more better! I want to sew! :))
Well, this post is a little bit overdue... I finished an Easter wall hanging UFO before I got ill again and I'm really happy I can remove another project from my UFO-list! :)
I can't remember when I started working one it... (I have to do something with the 'labels'...), but I believe it is 3 years ago... The reason why I never got around finishing it, is I didn't come up with any solution for the border. I had only added the 'egg' border around the panel (hen) and got stuck there... (Sorry for that terrible pink background! Had to hang it on the cloth line to get a proper photo!)
I had enough fabric for a table topper too! :)
It was supposed to be a runner, but....... something mysterious happened halfway! :))
I have FMQ them both, and the more I do FMQ - the more I love it!
Some weeks ago I got a sms from a friend; 'read your email! Urgent!' It was in the evening and I had just shut down the computer, so I sms'd back and asked what was up.
My friend's friend - an young! lady of 80+ years - had called him, because she had come across a closing-out sale in a quilt shop in the village where she lives! The shop was selling boxes of 10 kilos / 22 pounds with fabrics to a very good price - if he wanted to buy a box for me?! The lady was willing to buy the box for him the next day. I was almost standing in bed with my eyes wide open!!! 10 kilos / 22 pounds of fabric as advanced Christmas gift!!!! How could I refuse?! I felt sorry for the lady, because she had to go to the shop again the next day and was she able to get a box?!
She did! The shop had one box left!!! :))
Earlier this week I got some of the fabrics! Just like Christmas! :)) It's awesome! I don't know what I had expected, but there are lots of square in different lines and colors, even some pieces of lovely, lovely batiks! You can see it to the right, under the green/red bunch of fabrics.
I can't turn my back to this guy! GRRRR! :((
I had to empty the box on the floor - the stash is still there - and he took the chance! Fortunate he was not dirty, but still........ This is something he is not allowed to do - and he knows it! But you know... temptation! temptation! :)
Thanks to all of you who has commented and given suggestions how to do the center piece on the block I'm working on! (See my previous post). I do appreciate your comments and suggestions so much! Since I have been sick, I haven't been able to consider any of your suggestions yet, but I hope working on that over the next week! Thank you! :)
