Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Our weekend began with shopping for a new refrigerator. I am pleased to report that we did buy one, unfortunately it won't be delivered until Friday. Naturally, we needed to special order one due to the space configuration in our kitchen. No microwave still. I'll save that for another time. I reached my fill line of appliance shopping with the fridge for one weekend. Yes, like many of you mentioned, I'm sure the power outage didn't do the appliances any favors. Too bad they didn't stop working right after our power was restored! LOL! I'm actually kind of looking forward to the new fridge. The new one is a big upgrade from what we had. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to get something out of the fridge and there's no fridge there!! :-)
It's Spring Break for the girls this week, which translates to Spring Quilting on Annie for me. I typically do not work when the girls are off school, so this week I am quilting every chance I get. The girls will be going to Grandpa and Grandma's house this week for a few days, so I'll really be able to concentrate on some quilting. I want to quilt some curling feather borders on clients' quilts, so I practiced some on muslin last night.
I love them. Don't pay attention to my wonky crosshatching. I wanted to see the contrast next to the feathers. I would use a ruler if it was on a quilt! LOL!
Most of the time, I have to use indirect lighting to get the quilting to show, otherwise the overhead lights "white" everything out.
I think with just a few tweaks in my feathers and I'll be quilting up a curling feather border storm!! :-)
