I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … my life is nothing, if not random. So it is no surprise that since my blog is peek into my life, it’s mostly a series of randomness.
I was able to get the borders on my quilt in fairly short order yesterday, so DH borrowed some larger folding tables from church so I could baste together my quilt top, batting and backing. I was even able to get a couple of blocks quilted last night (in between jumping up to hand out candy to trick or treaters). Remember, you can click on the picture to get a larger view.
The good thing about having mostly fall decorations (as opposed to Halloween decorations) is that I didn’t have much to take down this morning, now that Halloween is over.
I discovered a new iPhone app for quilting – QuiltCalc. It calculated the yardage and the number of strips I needed to cut for my borders and binding. How I wish I had this when I was buying fabric for the Irish Chain quilt I made last June (I added borders and wasn’t sure how much fabric to buy … the sales clerk helped me come up with an estimate, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough … so my quilt was a little smaller than I wanted).
I cannot believe that it’s November already … didn’t we just have Christmas last month? Seriously, this year has just flown by.
Noreen over at Life Blessings has issued a challenge to find something to be thankful for every day this month, and I’m going to take up that challenge. Won’t you join us?
Today I’m thankful for:
My hubby who supports and encourages me in my love of quilting. He had been encouraging me for a year or two to get a new sewing machine (how I wish I had followed up on that sooner … my new machine makes piecing almost fun!). He never complains if I want to stop at a quilt shop (even when we’re traveling). He never complains if I ask him, while he’s out running errands, to stop and pick up something quilting-related. I him!
