The last couple of days have been busy. I went to the eye doctor…again. I’m on my third pair of contacts in less than two weeks. Just haven’t been able to find the right fit yet. What a pain! These seem to be the best. My vision seems to be clearest in these. Doctor mentioned these were IT, if these don’t work then contacts won’t be an option for me. I’m definitely getting faster at putting them in. Only takes me a few moments now. Used to take me f-o-r-e-v-e-r! LOL! I hope they work out, I’d really like the option for the summer.
The girls just went to Scott’s parents’ house, so I’m going to be quilting 24/7. It’s looking like the 30s quilt will be my last practice play quilt for a while. It’s time for me to start putting my skills to work and Annie to start earning her keep. I marked the borders on the 30s quilt, so I can feather them up. It’ll be great practice for me to feather an entire border. I’ve loaded the quilt and started quilting the sashing.
The sashing will take the most time to quilt because I will be using a ruler as I quilt.
Boy, doesn’t my crosshatching look so much better than it did on the muslin???? LOL! Even though it’s painstakingly slow, using a ruler makes a huge difference.
This is my little helper. And in order to use my little helper ruler, I need to attach an extended base on Annie. That way the ruler doesn’t teeter around and the hopping foot doesn’t accidentally hop on the ruler. That would not be good.
Well, I’m off to the races…quilting races that is! 🙂
