I had a fail this week that took up a lot of my time…
I finished this quilt. I know that doesn’t seem like a fail as I have a finished quilt. BUT…here’s the story behind it. I worked really hard and tried to put together the full long binding video that I promised you all. I videoed all of the pieces, I sat down to try to edit them and realized that I didn’t have the camera at the right angle in one of the videos that I was going to clip together. So…that ruined the whole video.
So, I am back at square one needing to make a binding video. UGH. Everything I did was a waste. I was so disappointed.
I was thinking that I needed to make a whole quilt top before I could do a binding and was so bummed. Then I realized that I could machine quilt one of the charity quilt tops that are here. YAHOO!!! That will help me out plus I get a quilt top finished too. That was a great pick me up. I’ll use the top and do the retake of the binding video…that sure made me feel better about the whole day and failed binding video.
Thanks to the blog reader who donated the solid colored charm squares for this.
I also finished this…it’s a baby car seat sized Minky blanket. I am donating it to the Cedar Rapids relief quilts that are here waiting to be delivered.
I worked on two deadline projects as well and I’m happy to say I’m happy with how they are coming along. Here is a sneak peek at project #2….
My hope is that they will both be done by this time next week…at least the sewing part…the directions, maybe not.
I’ve been busy cross-stitching too. I’m still working on my Newcastle Bouquet pattern. Last I left you I was working and trying to get the border finished before September 1st. I accomplished that and am now to the middle working on the upper left.
I ended up stuck on the “white” flower in the bottom center. UGH. I was stuck not liking that the flower wasn’t showing up the best. Here’s a closer shot of it. It isn’t showing up. Oh no…time to rip that out and find a better floss color.
I ended up doing a new floss tube video. You can see it here….
Rosie really wanted to be part of the happenings so she made a guest appearance. That dog!!
I actually got a lot done this week as this happened too…
31 quarts of SALSA!!!
I had some help from Karl after he got home from work. I’m so happy to have that done. I do love canning but it is a lot of work. I’ll be happy for it this winter though.
That was my week…what are you busy with??
