Only one more day of vacation left. Sigh. I could get used to this life sooooo easily--except if I didn't work, I couldn't afford this life!
Jacquie at Tallgrass Prairie Studio is extending her "Spring to Finish" challenge for another month, since we still have a month of spring left. AND she has prizes--always a great little motivator! So here is my first finish for Chapter 2:
It's a table topper made from those half square triangles I found when organizing my sewing room. And, since pastel "Easter egg color" season is almost over, I made it reversible.
I'm planning to paint my kitchen a soft yellow, so I think this will go nicely!
It's the first time I've tried making a bi-colored binding, and I think it turned out pretty well!
Now to get to the other 432 UFOs hiding in the room!
I almost finished the curtains for my room, too. I hung them to decide where to hem them, and just couldn't bear to take them down right away.
I didn't think about lining them, and that probably would have been a good idea, as the seams are visible when the light shines through, but I'm not going back and changing that now.
If I'd had another daisy sheet, I would have made them a little wider, too, and I've considered adding the remainder of that eyelet dust ruffle to the long center sides, but I don't think that would suit the tab top style. No matter. I love how they look up there--so much lighter and happier than the old ones.
I realized I was running low on certain sizes of my machine needles, so stopped by the local quilt shop Monday while running errands.
I should have known better. I should have known I wouldn't get off that easily. Look what jumped into my hands:
In my defense, the whites in my stash were alarmingly low, as opposed to the beiges and naturals, so I had her cut two yards for me. The others, well, what can I say?
Yep, gotta go back to work soon.
