A busy day today. It sure felt good to pull into the garage tonight! Then I walked in and saw the project on my sewing table, and didn't even go in there. I think I need to take a breather.
I've got a class at The Fabric Patch on Wednesday night, and besides pulling my background fabric, I haven't done a thing else to get ready. Guess that'll be a task for tomorrow night!
The Thimbleberries Safe Haven was another second year quilt. I really liked working on this one - nice big easy pieces! Unfortunately, I sent it to a quilter in another state on the recommendation of someone in my online group. In fact, I sent two quilts to her. Both of them were a royal mess when I got them back. I paid her to custom quilt this one, and it had very minimal quilting on it. There were spaces over a foot square that had no quilting in it at all. I gave this one to a local lady who quilts on a Juki. She's done a lot of my quilts and does a really nice job. She's going to add more quilting to it. The other one is in a tub upstairs. I'll post a picture of it this week to see if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix the looped thread on the back. I contacted that quilter once and the conversation was most unsatisfactory, so I decided just to chalk these up to experience!
My gratitude today is just being grateful for the blessings in my life!
