Yep - I left the house very early this morning to get to the gym. I had already edited pictures for the blog today. I got about 2 KM from the house and realized that I forgot to upload the pictures to the blog so I could write the post when I arrived at work (before I actually had to start work - as if I work by a clock!!!!). Well on my way home tonight, I realized that I had forgotten to write the blog!!!!
So here I am.
You see it was a crazy crazy day at work. Even though I got there way before 8 AM and had to come in the back with the warehouse guys, with the intention of leaving early - that didn't happen and it was go go go all day.
More on that excitement another day. Here's what happened yesterday.

I had a very productive day yesterday. I got that T-shirt quilt put together - no problems. It really looks very nice. Then time to make the backing. The fabric I used for the backing is part of Northcott's new Stonehenge line called Gradations. I really really like it and the quality of the flannel is EXCELLENT.
Hardly any fraying when it was washed. Just a couple of long threads that came loose across the top. Less than 1 /4" was wasted. That is QUALITY!!!!!

Next up was to make the binding and get that sewn on. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Husqvarna Viking Walking Foot. I think my old one has either died or it just doesn't work very well. It was a breeze to sew the binding on.

And there it is - the quilt has a binding and just needs hand stitching and a label. That's a job to start tonight.
Yeah - will try to get that one loaded tonight so that I can tackle it in the morning. Yes - another day off tomorrow. Thank goodness or I wouldn' be getting any sleep!!!!!
One of the other projects that I have to work on is converting this dress (yes a tad dated) into a quilt.

I took the dress apart last week.

Got any ideas????? Well - a quick shopping trip in the morning and hopefully I will be good to go.
On that note - time to get to work with a hand needle. Good thing there are books on tape!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!
