It felt really good to be sewing today. I almost have a top assembled. Will finish it up tomorrow. A beef roast in the crockpot is smelling wonderful.
The cable company came out today to install new boxes for these that weren't working. I'm glad I was here because they put some sort of booster up in the bedroom that knocked out my computer. Anyway, all is fixed now, and I've had the TV going all afternoon. Hmmmmm, that may not be such a good thing! LOL
This quilt was made at Alex Anderson's Quilt Retreat in Nov. 2002. I grabbed a bunch of fabric and threw it in my suitcase for the retreat project. I was just thinking red/cherries, green/leaves. It wasn't until I starting assembling it that I realized it looked awfully Christmassy. So it's named my Very Merry Cherry Christmas Quilt.
I realize I'm posting these quilts at all the wrong times of the year, but I just want to get as many of them documented as I can before I forget the details. Frequent brain fades here!
Oh, funny story about the cable guy. He looked around and said, "So you make blankets, huh?" He walked over to the quilt Judy gave me that was entered in Road to California show this year. He said, "Do you sell these to like Sears or Marshall?" I told him I didn't sell my quilts. He said, "I'll give you $20 for this one?" I started laughing (hysterically). He came back with, "Okay, $30 and not a dollar more."
