Ahhhh.... three day weekend, celebrating country and freedom, and moving forward on the 2014 goals.... ahhhhh....
This where I left off tonight.... two quilts all pinned and ready to be quilted. Of course, there was quite a journey to get here.
My little furry blessings help me to never, I mean, never ever.... feel alone. If they are not with me in the sewing room.... they are with me in other parts of the house.
Miss Susie is enjoying the backing to the Urban Cowgirl quilt.
Michael appreciates the tops better.
Before getting to the top.... I thought I had measured the batting incorrectly - so there was a bit of frustration. It turned out that I just grabbed the wrong piece.
After crawling around on the floor last night - (not to mention the nearly three hours of yard work the day before) I was pretty sure that I would be very sore today.
No soreness - so another quilt is getting sandwiched. And not a furry buddy to be found!
Spoke too soon!
Yes, he really does love the tops!
So, all in all, this was a great weekend... while it was a quiet one for our family... no family cook out or pool party.... I was never alone.
Got to work towards checking off another 2014 goal.... (Urban Cowgirl quilt was a top previously made.)
These are the last two quilt tops that need to be quilted and become completed quilts. The top one still needs the applique done.... and the bottom quilt top is my second ever quilt!
I am nearing my 50th birthday.... the Year of Jubilation. It has been a life-long dream to sew and quilt. I am so happy that I am finally fulfilling that dream.
I am really, really happy that I never have to do it alone.
