What once was lost, now is found
Last night there were no excuses. I WAS going to finish the quilt blocks I started 3 years ago. They were taking up too much space in my tiny sewing area.
I am using recycled denim left over from another project. Years ago, my old college roommates gave me beautiful stacks of quarter flats as a gift in the pink/green color pallet. So, I married the two together. I did a modified log cabin design for each block. As an added feature, I did a "peek-a-boo" window in each center block that will fray when washed. I only needed to sew 9 more blocks to make a twin sized quilt. And I finally sewed the last 9 blocks. But I didn't stop there. Amazingly enough, I even pieced the entire thing together (minus the border)!
It feels *so* good to see it coming together.
In Valentine News, my hubby thought V-day was Thursday instead of today. No biggie. I love him anyways. Maybe we will make it a tradition. Celebrate V-day one day after. Think of all the 50% off sales! Not that we go all out for this special day. Normally just a sweet hand written card and a few sweets for our bellies.
