August 8th, 2009 - No Rest

Especially when you are on vacation. I thought that I would get lots of quilting since I’ve been home but  I’ve done very little. Here’s what I’ve been doing………

 See all these weeds. Well now they are all gone. Every single one of them. My fingers are killing me. The tips are really tender and tingly. Our patio is 18′ by 50′ and it’s all interlocking brick. So much fun.

Now it looks like this. I had to use a lot of water to try and loosen the buggers up. I don’t like using weed killer because I like to walk outside in my barefeet and I don’t want that stuff getting on me or being tracked in to the house. I guess I’ll have to find a “green” way to get rid of these things. Or just go out there more often and pluck them out.

 On the quilting front I finished another baby quilt. This time I machine quilted it and then wrapped the backing around to the front for the binding.

 I don’t know if you can see it but I quilted the edges with the serpentine stitch in white thread. I think I like quilted better than tied. I started the quilting at 9:30 and was completely finished, binding and all by 11:00. The tied quilt took me 2 nights to do. I think I’ll be quilting the rest of them.

Have a great night or what’s left of it.
