Whatever Wednesday

I don't have a good reason why I haven't gotten my act together until so late this Wednesday, I just been feeling blaaaahhh... no energy. I'd like to blame it on the heat but I spent most of the day inside with the AC going full blast. I do have a couple of things I want to share though.

First this is where my BBD Mystery Sampler stands.


I'm working on the last 2 sections at the same time since I discovered that I made a counting error somewhere along the line and there is NO WAY I'm going back and frogging anything. I'm off 2 stitches on the top to the bottom borders. I'm soooo glad that this piece isn't symmetrical. I'm going to have to shorten a flower stalk here or there or leave out a little motif but I doubt anyone will notice it. I am very happy with this piece and can't wait to see it finished and framed. There is another BBD graph that should arrive tomorrow that I want to start,and getting one piece finished is the best motivation I know of.

And isn't this a great quilt?



Unfortuately, it isn't mine. My friend Laurey made this and it is a gift for her future DIL. The flowers are done in wool on a cotton background. She appliqued this with her Janome. Don't you love the button centers? This is such a happy quilt.


And then there is this cutie --



My niece, Angela, crocheted this adorable polka dot chicken potholder. I love it and I can assure you that I will never tempt fate by actually using it. I intend to hang it on the fridge so I can admire it. It makes me smile!

Hope your week has been more productive than mine. The most I have to show for the week is clean laundry and I doubt that any of you need to see that!

Happy stitching,
carol fun

  3. BBD is looking awesome! You're right, no one will ever know about the mis-count, not with that type of border. Laurey's quilt is stunning! And that's one cute chicken from your niece. :)
