It's been a busy few days. And the good new is The Quilty Barn along quilt top is finished!
My love of gingham in the border flange
The only piece of fabric that almost matches and is just big enough for the backing. I may need to attach extenders on the sides to make it work on the frame
Last week I went yard selling with my cousin Stephanie. Found these cute curtains for $2. My plan was to make a dress or pillows. My plans changed.
So there's this old ugly lamp and shade....
Made a template and then a new inner shade out of Quilters Templar, it doesn't melt.
removed the old
And added the new shade
Now I need some brass polish
Now for the not so good news. BEES! BEES! BEES! 6 lbs of bees!
Mr.Brave before the bees are released
Preparing for attack
I'm at a distance with the zoom on the camera, bees are everywhere! I went in side after this picture because one of the bees came over and bounced off my head...ENOUGH for me! I should have kept my mouth shut when he said he wanted chickens, chickens don't sting.
Back the good news. I won 2 wonderful packages last week. One from Patchwork Sampler, Thanks Rhonda I love, love, love Marmalade! Now what to do with them!
And another from Sewincrediblycrazy. Thanks Amy! These are great! I can print out a design to trace on the longarm...so many new ideas!
Since I've had such good luck in the last week I've decided to have my own first giveaway this Friday. So be sure to come back!
Until next time "Quilt out of Your Comfort Zone!"
