Yesterday, Monday, I took LTW to the Lake Street Mercantile quilt shop. They were having a sale on red, white, and blue fabrics. I was bad, but she was badder! I bought a yard of the blue you see (teal really) and a half yard of that bicycle fabric. How many of you remember that bike? I had that Stingray bike with the banana seat and those handlebars. Mine was purple and the seat was sparkly. I may have to see if I can get a photo next time I'm at my dad's (yes, he still has that bike!)
Silly me, just ask LTW and it magically appears!!
I bought a pattern too but need to take a photo of it to post. It is the most adorable little birds. I have no idea why I am so suddenly smitten by birds (chicks, birds, owls, whatever!!)
Lest you think I was just pining away with out my Bernina (sniff, sniff, I MISS her) I was not. (Or not totally) I finished hand sewing around my chicks (the ones I didn't give out to the CL's to do) and I got all of mine finished. They will probably not be happy with me but whatever! I needed some hand work to do, right? They are not perfect but they got better as I went along. Here is how they are going to be set. Isn't this the cutest pattern?
I have quilting with the CL's tonight so will see how mad they are at me for finishing them. I just want them done so I can assemble this quilt and have it ready for the quilter ASAP. It is not due to it's home until next January, but I want to cross it off my list (wait, is it on my side bar list??) If it isn't I am going to add it so I can cross it off!! I actually have a second one made to do for myself so I should add that one too. *sigh* how does this list keep growning??
