Ok, we have had some fun the past few days..... just getting away. And while eating my breakfast.... the other morning...what did I spy in my garden?????? But this lovely little creature nibbling on all of my garden shrubs. I should have taken a picture of the almost gnawed bare little bush...I still haven't planted yet!!! Not sure how to dissuade him from eating them.... ???Any suggestions??? Sorry for the blurriness..but forgot I had been taking pics at night...and hadn't changed the settings. I was afraid that if I moved too much, he would run away...before I got the photo.
Today was a lovely day, I did finally put the final border on this little scrappy string quilt..... It is a double sized quilt, hope to load it tomorrow...and attempt to quilt a bedsized quilt..... for me. It should be fun. Think I will do a simple free hand pattern.... since I don't know how to do anything else.... *o* Shame! At any rate.... going to get this on the machine, get it quilted.... then will try to figure out what to do for bias binding??? Any suggestions will be duly noted. This little quilt was made from all the leftover bits.... that I scratched from all of my friends fabric leftovers. I got yellows from Peggy, Reds from Jean, The hot pink and orange and some blues from Ann, then the greens and dark blues from Enid. It was so much fun, going through their leftover scraps. I inititally made a little flowered machine appliqued quilt which is also not finished, with the first bits, then had so many cut strips left from the border of that first quilt, that I had to do something with....so Scrappy Strings was born!!!! Way different from most of the quilts I have made...but lots of fun. The professor and I are going to hear Colin Powell speak tomorrow evening so won't get much done .... but will show the progress .... and if this turns out...then may go ahead and do the scrappy flower quilt next. I have plenty of batting...but have to sort what to put on the back of these quilts.May just piece from the stash.... have plenty of that stuff around.
