Sunday Sewing

Where does the time go??? It was Friday night, I blinked, and now it's Sunday evening! Friday night, B. and I went to the Joyce Meyer conference. It was a great event, especially since we tend to have quality conversations in the car. Baby K had fun with her favorite babysitter, Elizabeth. Paace of mind is a great thing, and I'm very grateful we have a trustworthy friend to babysit when we take the rare night away from baby!

Saturday I had some longarm time, which I spent basting a quilt for my mom. I won't be advertsing that service very much...it's B-O-R-I-N-G! You stare at the gorgeous quilt and all you're doing is straight lines. At least it sparks the creative center of my brain so I'm ready for the next project! I finally dug out some hangars with clips so I can hang quilts on the bar that B. installed next to my machine. I can ponder quilting designs while viewing the whole quilt.

I got borders on the Orange Delight:
Here you see the corner of the "squares squared" center, a one inch black border, a 3 inch orange border in Kerstin's favorite fabric, then the piano keys. I am going to piece one more set of piano keys, then get out my knitting while my Sunday TV shows are on.

Speaking of knitting, I finished the 2nd Inside Out sock! Yay me!!! No finished object picture though, because I decided to frog the leg of the first sock and re-do the cables on bigger needles. 55 more rounds...no problem! And the excitement is building for kit #2, which will be shipped this week. Three cheers for Blue Moon Sockateers!
