This is Fairy Garden, a twin size quilt for dd. She's getting quite the collection!
I started this quilt back in September 2006. I fell in love with the purple fabric in the half square triangle.
I was going to use it for the border but I made a cutting mistakes. I forgot that I was working with half square triangle and cut too many squares. That's what you get for designing a quilt as you go! lol Oh well, it gave me an opportunity to buy more fabric! lol
The renovations are coming along!
These are the stairs in my sewing room. Aren't they pretty? They're much better than what I had before.
The finishing touches always seem to take longer to accomplish. Stephen is still plugging away at the closets. With the old wood that we salvaged from the renovations he's making closet shelving. Beats painted shelves! lol
I need to vent about something that annoyed me this week. Last year Gayle from Strawberry and Rhubarb asked me if I would monitor Libby's class at VQF. Being the sponsor and provider of the sewing machines, she wanted someone who could assist the students with the Bernina machines should something go wrong. She felt that she wanted to keep her trained staff for the booth. So, I gladly accepted. Around February of this year, I confirmed if all was well for VQF; she said she would call me a bit before the show to provide me with all the details. A couple of weeks prior to the class, having received no calls, I phoned her shop and left a detailed message. No reply! I phoned again a few days before the show and still no returned call. I'm having a difficult time with this and find it disrespectful. If she no longer needed my services, why not just tell me so that I can free up that time! I haven't decided yet how I should deal with this. Thanks for allowing me to vent! ;o)
Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by!
