I haven't been bloging due to lack of things to talk/write about. I can't stand boring blogs so I'm surely not going to subject you to one of those.
What I've been up too you might ask? Mainly taking it easy. Mom left this afternoon. I'll miss her. I really enjoyed having her here. I'm sure she's eager to get back into her own things. She's been such a great help, which allowed me to concentrate on getting better. I will say that I'm finally starting to feel much better, more me. I'm not at my 100% yet, but I can certainly see the light at the end of the tunnel. My staples are coming out this Wednesday, hurray!
Well, Suzette has given me a heads up regarding the UFO Queen position on Stashbusters. So I've been busy working on my last applique block. Tah...dah..........
I have complete the final block on the hand applique quilt My Favorite Things by Robyn Pandolph - Cabin Fever Designs. The green leaves are much darker in real life and contrast well with the overall design. Photographs can be deceiving!
Tonight I plan on assembling the blocks with the sashing and perhaps even sew on the borders. If I'm feeling really energetic, I may even sandwich the quilt, making it ready to be machine quilted. Yea, right! lol
I haven't decided how I will be machine quilting it as of yet. It will probably be something simple in the blocks and perhaps a designs on the borders.
I'm hoping I can get this quilt done before my name comes up on the UFO Queen list. If not, that's okay. No use stressing about quilting! A fat quarter penalty is not a big deal and I will be happy to oblige.
I do hope you are all having a great weekend. The weather has just been marvelous. DD has been in the pool practically every day of this week.
Have a great weekend!
