Fall is in full swing here in Iowa and this year, the trees are giving a beautiful showing. This tree is outside my sewing room window. When I moved into this house, it was a small stick. We had to be careful to not mow over it!
Last week, I did marathon quilt back making and spray basting. I have five quilt tops all ready to go. Even though I cover my floors and furniture with sheets, my floors still get sticky from the over spray. Yesterday I scrubbed and oiled my hard wood floors to make them look nice again. I need to figure out a better way to spray baste my quilts. When the weather warms up next spring, I am going to start using the garage. Until then????
Anyway! When I sat down to quilt the first of five quilts, I found this mistake!! How did I not notice it when it was sitting around for weeks and when I basted it? I don't know!! It took some work to take it apart, and fix it, especially because of the basting spray making it sticky, but I had to fix it. It was going to drive me nutty... At one point I was ready to toss the whole thing. Tell me I am not the only one who feels that way at times.
Here she is all fixed and quilted up. I am very glad I didn't toss it!!
And the obligatory view of the back. Yes, I layered the top on the back a bit crooked. Such is life. Its meant to cuddle with and not win any prizes. *wink*
Now that I got my living room floor all prettified, I have gotten in the mood to do more deep fall cleaning. I need to strike when the iron is hot! The one time I am not thrilled with being an empty nester is during cleaning time. I miss my helpers. =)
Have a happy Thursday!!
