(I'm getting some unsolicited help with my blogging from Hi-Hi, who seems to be feeling neglected today. I told him he'd have had his picture taken with the quilts if he hadn't been snoozing away upstairs!)
Anyway, this second picture is the third piece of the series, and I think it's going to be a "real" quilt. It's fairly cohesive in a scrappy way, and since it was only straight-pinned to the flannel and not to the backing, it's going to be easy to add some real batting instead and just go ahead and quilt it. The floral fabric to the right of it is the backing fabric, which you can't exactly tell, but is also in the piecing If nothing else, this will be a great piece to practice some free-motion work on, some fillers and some doodles and kind of try to get some of my skills back up to speed.
Today was one of "those" days that got off to a slow start, because instead of coming right downstairs and getting my day going, I took some time to clean out a drawer in the bathroom dresser. Yes, my upstairs bathroom has a cute little antique dresser in it, along with the clawfoot tub and pedestal sink! We originally had a high-tank pull-chain toilet, too, but the tin lining in it gave out and it was just too much upkeep after a while, so we had it replaced with a nice low-flow model. TMI?
I did manage to get the second sleeve set into Audrey's sweater, so that's going to be my handwork while I watch the finale of Project Runway tonight. That, or more binding...the stack hasn't grown any, but it also isn't shrinking much! Oh well--we'll see if I feel like knitting or stabbing tonight!
