First of all, I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you who commented on our journey with Miss Ellie Mae. I sincerely appreciate every story shared. For now, even though she is growing weak, she still has her wits about her....still jumps up on the sewing table...and still speaks her mind. It's very easy to turn on the shower and rinse away her tub buzizness. When she no longer has her wits about her, cannot jump up on the sewing table and does not speak her mind, then the time will be drawing near. But for now....I have a very skinny cat and her name is Ellie Mae! :o)
I've got some finishes to share!
I FINALLY remembered to go in to the framers and pick up my CHS 1814 Butterfly Collection!!!
It turned out just as I had hoped! Like an old shadowbox...
I have a feeling I will see this molding on other samplers in the future.
I just love it! But then I'm a burlwood freak, so goes without saying!
Hubs tried to "guess" how much I paid for this beauty. In true form he ALWAYS guesses stupidly low. When will he realize I have FABULOUS taste!?!??
Tonight I added the extra two rows of blocks to the "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" quilt.
It's a large 97 1/2" square now. Too big to lay out flat to get a pic, so imagine this only double. As you can see, Sam was accompanying me downstairs this evening and he felt the need to trample all over the Yellow Snow quilt.
Now I just have to wait for the backing fabric to arrive in the next month or so. In the meantime I can toss around quilting ideas. Do I pin baste this sucker and straight line it myself? Hmmmm.....or do I turn it loose in to the hands of an accomplished longarm quilter with a request for "vintage". I really just want simple.....decisions decisions!
I'll be working on this quilt project now...
and I also pulled fabrics for another one!
Two quilts going at once....I think I can get the hang of this. And then I'll have double quilt top finishes too! It's a good thing!
Thanks again, blog friends, for your thoughtful comments. I hope you're having a wonderful week!
