Yessirree...the guts are done on the kit I picked up in Dallas a couple weeks ago. I'm actually thinking of foregoing the border on this one...for one reason because I'm not crazy about the border print....and for another reason, I am starting to dislike measuring and cutting borders! LOL
Actually...I think there's enough solids breaking up the fabrics that a no-border option is okay with this one....a nice strong solid binding to end it...what do you think? Unlike my Sonnet Rail Fence, which I have yet to show you. It's VERY busy with NOTHING to break up the fabrics and it NEEEEEEDS the borders that it will eventually have. I had planned to get it done this weekend, but as of this very minute, I'm a little tired of sitting at the machine, so it may not get done today.
As promised, here are pics of some of the fabrics I bought at the Dutch Rose sale. I picked up 4 different batiks to go with that bird batik from Dallas....
The two darkest fabrics you see are just a couple from the stash---non-batiks---that I think I'm going to have to use in the quilt....needs some darkness I think.
And then here's the latest Westminster adds....from Kaffe and Philip Jacobs...LOVE THESE!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Not sure what they're going to be come yet....but I'm sure I'll figure it out! ha!
And on a more somber note....it was a year ago this weekend that Jake and Emmitt and I ventured East to Ohio for a wonderful fun visit with Dad! The sun was shining...Jake had fun reconnecting with his cousins...Dad was in GREAT spirits...albeit without his hair, but he was in rare form and still getting along just fine.
We were planning summer outings, and I had already had things lined up to make monthly visits to see him....it was a 1,000 mile drive..but well worth it. And we spent time talking about how good he felt and that he thought he had at least one more good year left in him........if only we knew....that in two short weeks....everything would change. And that in another two weeks, he would be gone. I miss him so much. I feel like there's nobody to take care of me anymore...not that he was still literally taking care of me...but you know what I mean. He raised me to be quite strong and capable, so I can certainly take care of myself! Still---it was always nice to know I could pick up the phone and he'd be there.
Okay---ENOUGH of that! I don't want to get all depressed! So chin up, I say to myself! Chin up!
Hope your weekend is going great! Texas just got beat...*SIGH*......my hopes ride on Davidson for the ultimate upset! :o) *Peace!
Well shit.....live and die by the 3 pointer and Davidson's run is over. Shit shit shit! I was hoping they would make it. Crap!
