I hope your week is off to a great start.
As for me, I'm happy to have completed a project. Remember the quilt I started last October? I finished the quilt top in my beginners quilting class, and it's been sitting in my workroom waiting for me to take a machine quilting class to finish it. Several weeks ago I completed a class in free motion machine quilting, and last week I used my October quilt as a guinea pig to try out what I learned. The quilt was already pretty wonky -- my piecing skills have improved considerably -- so I didn't hesitate to practice some radical free motion quilting. It's pretty amateurish, but that's okay. I learned a lot.
I finished binding the quilt this afternoon, and washed it. I love the way new quilts look after they're washed the first time -- the crinkly look they acquire.
So yeah, I'm happy it's done. And now I'm ready to begin my second quilt.
I've got the pieces cut out and plan to start sewing tomorrow. Anything that's a "piece of cake" sounds good to me. We've been so busy with house plans and getting bids that I'm worn out. (More about all that later.)
How about you? What are you doing this week?
On another note, if you have a bathroom post you'd like to share at Every Room In The House, please do. It doesn't have to be a recent post. We're partying in the bathroom the entire month of April, and I'd love it if you'd join in the fun. Here's the link: Every Room In The House Party - #4
