I came down with a fever. Garden fever to be more exact! Thank goodness the days are starting to get noticeably longer but that doesn't mean the days are filled with sunshine around here. Critter is enjoying some sun from our window sill that just happens to overlook the bird feeder. A popular spot as you might have guessed. She is sitting next to a container I brought indoors last fall. The ivy has completely taken over almost choking out a mini fern plant. The begonia continues to flower. I adopted two very large Boston Ferns and they are doing very well too. In the spring I'll have to divide them.
Oh. Check this out. After only FIVE YEARS I finally finished this denim quilt. I guess since this is the 6th time I have moved with it I figured I needed to finish it. It almost makes me sick to think it only took me an hour to finish the binding. One lousy hour and I moved it 6 times. Critter took a liking to it right away. The funny thing is that I really don't like it anymore. I mean this was the second sewing project I started. I've changed a lot since then.
I quilted it with a blue embroidery thread. When I have some good light again I'll take a picture of the back.
And the vintage sofa is still around. I finished the pattern for it. You can kinda see where I am taking this. But it's going to take 15 or so yards of fabric (est $10-15/yard) and new cushions. And the car didn't pass inspection so we have to buy 4 new tires. Maybe I can look for fabric in March.
I am pretty proud on those darts to fit the cover around the soft corners. This baby is going to look nice when I finish it!
