Whoop-tee-doo! I won! I won! Yes, I FINALLY won a give-away (and no… Claire’s ‘give-away’ doesn’t count! Although I did love my gift from her a lot!! :o) ) I won this lovely charm pack from Marj on Eclectic Quilter! It’s called Heaven on Earth and it really is lovely….reminds me of Spring on this rainy Fall day… Thank you very much Marj! I am thrilled!
Yesterday was a wet, cold and rainy day on the coast….but I was warm and snug sewing up ‘a storm’…(get it…) So what did I get done….well I completely finished off the Fall quilt-got the binding on and stitched. Whew…it still Fall and it’s finished!! That’s a first! Then I couldn’t decide where to put it…
Then I worked on the Ball Jar Penny Rug. I took two steps forward and one step back as I burned the bottom right corner of the jar-OUCH!….is that the smoke detector I hear….? Ahhh, nothing like the smell of burnt wool….
I learned a valuable lesson here….use a pressing cloth and steam iron! See we do learn from our mistakes. So I cut out a new jar and proceeded from there. I still need to sew on the buttons, stitch more babies breath, finish the crow and then start the pennies.
I am not going to put on tongues…I like pennies better. Tomorrow I will show you a neat trick to make pennies…wool ones, that is….whew almost had the Canadian Mint breathing down my neck. I can tell you one thing….I wouldn’t be wasting my time making real pennies…. although our Canadian dollar is up!
I also cut out the binding for my snowball quilt and got it stitched on….Whew! I feel like I am back in Kim’s Finish It Up in August Challenge! YIKES!
Have a magical Monday and Happy quilting!
