It's a craptacular picture, taken with my phone...but it should give SOME idea of my current `I have no time for this but I'm going to do it anyway,' project. I put the top together a few weeks ago and then backburnered it for a variety of reasons. Anyway, today I enlisted la familia and we got the top tied. All that's left is the binding and here's how I do that:
Jett: Moooommmm....how do you do this again?
Jett's mom: (sighs in exasperated fashion,) Look, you have to tuck this part under...no...your stitches are too big...you don't want them to show... (goes on)
JETT BACKS SLOWLY AWAY AND PROCEEDS TO DO LAUNDRY AND VACUUM AND DO OTHER ODD JOBS AROUND THE HOUSE WHILE JETT'S MOM DOES THE BINDING OF THE QUILT.
Wulfie is a big cat keep in mind but you'll note that he is dwarfed by the quilt. Heck, my younger brother can sprawl on it without any limbs going off. It's BIG. I'm awfully proud of it.
I will take a better picture of it, but check it out...I made NINE patches and leaf appliques and bunches of other neat stuff on it. Okay...a lot of my corners don't match for beans...but it's still a neat quilt.
It has been a good day. Got many errands run, got a new pass for the rec center...(this means SWIMMING Monday morning!) also got some boards cut for sketchbook covers. That will be next weekend. I still have much paper to fold. Actually, prepping the PAPER is the time consuming part!
Many projects to do...but when they are done...so will be my Christmas. Ho ho ho.
