Yesterday was dyeing day so I don't have a lot to show for my efforts of the day.
I did finish quilting the challenge quilt. I wasn't happy with how some of the stitching lines met so I covered them up with crystals. The crystals don't like sticking to places where the surface isn't particularly smooth so now I'm gluing them on as they fall off. The crystals are taking longer than the quilting!
I hope to have this finished up tonight with binding and hanging sleeve and then I'll show the whole thing.
Last week Mom and I went to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to see the butterfly exhibit and walk around the huge rose garden. I took a lot of butterfly photos but haven't edited them yet. But one surprise was finding Lego sculptures in the garden. This was my favorite......and also the favorite of the of birds.
Today I'm off to pick up my new eyeglasses and run a bunch of errands. I don't buy or wear much jewelry but I do love eyeglasses and could easily spend thousands on them. I didn't get any new ones last year so this year I have 2 new "fancy" ones, a cheap pair that I can wear in the playroom when I'm painting and wearing the respirator (so I don't ruin the fancy ones) and new lenses in my sunglasses that I already hate and have to return. I got those done at Costco and they just aren't dark enough. I'm going to have to take them somewhere else. Lots of errands today!
The weather is spectacular here today and I'm enjoying having the windows open.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
