We had a very busy weekend. First of all, I finally finished that applique quilt I was working on. It took me about 22 hours to quilt this thing. Here’s a little show and tell for you. My customer/friend didn’t want any stitching on the applique. I feel very lucky that my she let me buy this quilt from her. I had asked her when she first brought it to me. She usually just puts her quilts in the closet. It will look beautiful in my living room. She came by today to pick it up to put the binding on for me. I’m thrilled, it’s a win/win for both of us. Especially since I did way more quilting than she asked for. When I was doing all this quilting I was thinking that maybe I would enter it in some shows. I’m not sure if I will or not. There’s a lot of places that aren’t perfect, but if it was going in a closet it wouldn’t matter. Now, I’m not so sure. I guess I’ll wait until it’s hanging in my house and I can take a good long look at it.
We (meaning my husband) planted 6 trees in our backyard this weekend. It looks good to have something growning even if they’re just sticks in the ground. We got 5 maple trees, and 1 red barked curly willow. We’re trying to block the fact that we now have neighbors directly behind us. We’ve never had that before in all the houses we’ve lived in. It’s an adjustment, the trees will help. <grow, grow, grow> We also stained our back fence. It took a long time, but it looks really nice. I’m exhausted, and satisfied.
I also painted a wall in my studio. I’ll post pics of that next time. I think I like it.
