Friday update


Small steps in the right direction :-)

DD2's quilt has got a border, is sandwiched and is ready for machine quilting.
I think it will be smart to quilt every log in the ditch, just so it will keep up through the years.
DD2 was young making this - it must be about 7 years ago - she is now 15.
Some seams are a little short and one place the seam allowance is very scant.
She was very clever sewing this by herself on paper, printed from EQ4.
She decided the block herself, I printed, she sew herself, with minimum help and interruption.
I think I have a photo of her in an album - way before digital camera. If I can find the photo I will upload it with her finished quilt.

My tote stitchery has got some threads in too.

My goals for tomorrow is to finish DD2's quilt, do a couple of threads on the stitchery and make 2 more pairs of DJ blocks.
If I can make it I have met my revised September goals, which will be lovely, and if I can't make it, it is steps in the right direction.
If I do not try I will not know, right ? :-)

I love the colors she used... and I'm sure since it's a first quilt, she'll always treasure it! I look forward to seeing her picture. :)

Isn't DD2 blessed to have such a mother as you...... Wonderful memories will be with that first quilt.

You will make those Sept goals easy now that you have begun again.
