I had a great day of waffles (with Nutella, bananas, & strawberries), sewing and then photo edits. I worked quite a few hours on last week’s wedding (not shown) – I think I should let the bride and groom see the photos before I post them here. Just know, I would love to show you. And I will once they’re all done. I also went through some of the Quilting Bee photos (shown above) and I still have a photoshoot to edit. I’ll do more edits tomorrow.
I also made the long walk (LOLS! I think it’s a 15 minute walk one way now that I think of it.) to Costco to buy THESE Liberty print blouses: [click to continue…]
Quilting Bee was fun tonight (it’s always fun!) and we had a special guest, Krista, come visit us to tell us about her new book (bought it!) and talk about her dreamy trip to Quiltcon. This quilt won at Quiltcon this year. You can read all about it here. She told us she entered this very quilt in to another competition, but the judges deemed it, “not modern.”. What? What’s a gal got to do to not be a modern quilter? She did win, “Best Use of Negative Space.” And I know what that means because of modern quilting. Hooray!

Today was spent doing errands, laundry, and test driving a car that we may or may not be trading in our old car for (which is very sad and very noisy at this point. Some kind of belt needs to be tightened or replaced, and so do the brakes. It’s so loud when we drive it, we’ve started calling it, “The Opera Car” because it’s singing to us to, “Please! Fix! Me!). Not nearly as much fun as yesterday was. No candy! No lemon donuts! No sewing and reading modern block quilt books.
However, we did watch several episodes of House of Cards. And that was put on hold only long enough to made some dinner and then watch the Walking Dead. I predict we’ll be watching at least one more episode of HoC before bed.
I will not spoil anything, just know that Kevin Spacey is an excellent bad guy. So is Robin Wright.
This made today the perfect day to fix the binding on my quilt. The bottom corners were very tight and curled and since I have the time to fix it, I will do it. I spent a surprisingly short time picking out the seams around the edges and will make a new border this week.
I’ll get the corners right this time – I didn’t sew them right in the first place, I’m certain of that now.
