Well okay....I'm a little behind schedule...I had hoped to be plopped on my behind around 5:00 or so....but hey, what can I say!?
Yes..it's true MM Marsha...I did scoot out and enjoy a leisurely lunch...
but a gal needs her sustenance! And it was a few minutes of time with the Jakester, who so nicely decided to grace me with his presence for lunch! But then, after a few errands...it was down to business time!
Banana cake done....I think I'll put on a pot of coffee because that's gonna need to be taste-tested this evening! ;o)
Quilt binding sewn, pressed and on the quilts! WOO! Huge task...especially when sweet little Emmitt felt like 'nesting' in each puddle of quilt off the side of my sewing table. This makes it difficult to maneuver huge quilts! LOL Poor guy...he couldn't understand why I kept jolting him from his cozy spot! Now handwork awaits!
And the huge chunk of linen....zig zagged and ready! 34" x 46"....nice big chunk. Hmmmm...I just wonder what I could possibly be getting ready to tackle...again! *SIGH* That's a clue for you! I started this sampler about 5 years ago or so....on 40ct linen with AVAS silks...got almost 1/2 done (I think there's a pic of it in one of my stitching albums on webshots still)...and then I couldn't stand it anymore. AVAS was not an enjoyable fiber to work with. So I sent it off to another ambitious stitcher. Now...I will start with 35ct Elegant Bean...and good ol' DMC. Any ideas what the mammoth beauty is? I'm sure you do! ;o)
But now...time to tackle the pile of magazines and books beside my chair!
Kathie, that is Joe Cunningham's new book "Amish Abstractions" you spied in the pile. It is WONDERFUL inspiration if anyone loves Amish quilts. Fantastic eye candy and I can't wait to delve in to the written part too! ;o) But I think first I will start paging thru and ripping out of some of these magazines that keep finding their way in to my mailbox. Not the quilting ones...I don't rip those!
quality time with Ann!
I hope you've all had a great Saturday! It's been practically perfect around here!
