My favorite sewing machine is back from the doctor. I set him up and made a Box Square, a 1930s block that I did in hand-dyes. To me, it looks like folded ribbons. I think I will do this block as leaders and enders in scraps. Did you know that it cost almost the same to send a stuffed envelop to Ireland as it does a small box? So I will be sending lagniappe ( Cajun for a bit extra) as padding.
The center of Saint Stars 2 has been pin basted and spray basted ready for quilting on the big BabyLock. I think I will begin tackling that Sunday during football game. Since the Saints aren't playing, all I really want to see are the commericals! All I need now is someone to hold my hand giving me courage to start. Any takers? I can do this all I have to do is start, Right? I can, I can, I can! Taking deep breathe while putting on BIG GIRL PANTIES!
DD#1 and I are planning a Mardi Gras retreat at her house to break in her new Bailey 17" and Studio which is already too small! It will be a great place to hide from all the silliness that goes on at Mardi Gras around Lewisburg. It will give me a chance to sew and use the Go to cut fabric for the two graduation quilts I have to do by May; get ready for Sue Nickels' class, and make kits for March trip and April retreat. 5 wonderful days!
Lator, Gators! Keep making Lemonade from Life's Lemons!
