Look! I got another "button" up there! It's to Freshly Pieced blog's "WIP Wed". Come join us at her linky party!
I'm afraid I'm sounding like a broken record these days! You know what those sound like don't you? I told my boys that the other day, and they looked at me like I was crazy! LOL! I guess that's an expression that'll someday fade into obscurity!
Here's a picture of my med tech quilt in progress. I got the rows almost sewn together. I'm lamenting my choice of this method, but I'll be glad to have it in my bag of tricks. Maybe it'll help me get over my hand-sewing aversion... (yeah, right!). I'm still not feeling great, so I'll be on the couch hand sewing for a while today...
I also thought I'd share a trick a friend of mine, Kathleen, told me about. She's my fabric shopping buddy, fellow quilter, and a mom of kids the same age as mine, who lives in a town about an hour away. We actually met on-line, when I was in Michigan, and when she found out we were moving here, we got together and have been great friends ever since! Her mom would cut apart drinking straws to extend the pegs in her thread storage box. I was with Kathleen a few weeks ago, buying a box to keep my expanded thread collection out of the horrible dust we get here. I put away all of my pretty threads, now that the project is ending, and this is what my box now looks like!!! Sweet!
I hope you all are safe and warm! We have a lot of family in Chicago, since that's where DH grew up. We're certainly thinking about all of you in that area and beyond!!
