Where are my weeks going? Well, goofing off and crafting. This week it is intense knitting as I try to get my niece’s shawl done before her wedding this weekend. The shawl plays no part in the wedding, I just want to gift it to her since I will see her, at her wedding. LOL. Since I am winging the design I am fearful I have miscalculated. I may have to scrap the finished item and just reknit it after the wedding. Sigh, why wasn’t I knitting this sooner?
In the sewing area of my life, Autumn Leaves is done. I know, such an imaginative name. LOL!
The Batiks were purchased in North Carolina last year when I accompanied Hubster, conference for him. I was able to get a ride to a quilt shop from the hotel valet. They had a lot of nice things, but the service was lacking, so no link to website. Having been in retail management I am a stickler for service. If you do not acknowledge my presence or fail to see I am standing at your counter, ready to check out, I might just decide your products aren’t worth my money. They almost lost the purchase that day, but I wasn’t ready to let go of the pretties.
The gold star and backing fabric was a remnant I picked up somewhere? and the background used up just about the last of a grunge jelly roll jr. and yardage. You can tell the two weren’t exactly the same, but they are close enough for me. Overall, I love it! I used a small leaf print for the binding, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. My only beef with it is the green and red leaves are oriented in the same direction. Grrr. But by the time I realized it I was not ripping out the seams to correct!
