Apparently she thought blog-worthy events would take place.
Well, I do have one FO (Finished Object) to report. The quilt for the wife of one of Michael's fellow couriers at Fed Ex is all done! It was just a simple rail fence, but it gave me some attitude while it was on the frame being quilted. However, after frogging one row of meandering and restitching it, I felt much better about it.
I think I'm really liking the machine stitched bindings more and more. I figured out how to mirror-image my blanket stitch so it was pointing the way I wanted it, and I was pleased with the even stitches of the binding.
I decided to further reacquaint myself with "Emma", my embroidery machine.
I made a label for the quilt, experimenting with various embroidered hats and wording, until I found a combination I liked, that we can use for all the chemo quilts we make in the Red Hot Sew 'n Sews.
I wasn't entirely pleased with this font, however, because it almost looks like Red HAT Sew 'n Sews.....we're the Red Hot Sew 'n Sews.....
I mean, after all, it was 104 degrees today. We're definitely hot!
Tomorrow, after some typing early in the morning, and a work out (before The Heat returns to bake SoCal for another day), I plan to cut out one of these. I love this pattern so much I got enough to make at least three......but with the left overs that Karene and Yvette passed along to me (Thank you!!) I just might be able to make four! Especially since I saw this variation! Scroll down the page to see a better view. Sew Cute!
Have a great weekend!
