I’m cleaning house in preparation for my MIL’s arrival, quilt group on Friday, and a BBQ on Saturday. In addition to dusting and vacuuming, I HAD to clean off the staging area that is supposed to be known as the guest bed. I’m not going to show the four pairs of dragon wings whose edges I hemmed for Kindergarten (no doubt I will post the wings in situ on show day). But here’s step two in the Mystery Quilt project from Patchwork Professional magazine:
I think my strips in step one should have been thinner, but I’m not going to worry about it now, especially since I don’t really know where this is going.
I bought a bunch of tiny MOO cards. I have yet to hand any out, but I can see them making great tags, enclosure notes in packages, and of course business cards. While I was at it, I ordered their new, larger “cards” with envelopes. I was curious to see how my quilts looked as gift cards, and though I am underwhelmed by some of the images and find the price to be too high for resale, it was a good experiment and something I will pursue further.
Last, but not least, my needle doodle of the day (yippee, back on track).
I think I know why there are thousands more flower themed quilts than gadget themed ones. Flowers and leaves are sooooo much more fun to sew.
