I have the baby quilt all basted and think I'm going to hand quilt it. No hurry on this, and it will give me some hand work for tonight's Heroes and Studio 60--and, well, many more television shows or movies.
Yesterday, after delivering the gumbo to Laddie and visiting for a while, I stopped by JoAnn's and picked up some embroidery floss.
How does embroidery floss work for actual quilting? I have some "thread conditioner" I could use on it...
Just to add to more projects that I don't do, the 40% off coupon went for a copy of Lesley Riley's Quilted Memories.
See the frame Beth gave me? I'm going to try to use it with the baby quilt...although I haven't had much luck with frames. It is old and adjustable, and when I finish with the little quilt, it will make a nice frame to hang on the wall until needed again. I'll find something to put in it and use it like a picture frame.
Here are my only purchases from the Craft show on Saturday: some old type and a rather dirty snowman.
Went back over and drove Laddie down to Raft Bayou in the afternoon. I like this old farm artifact.
This video is a comparison of Europe and Italy. Very funny.
