The calendar says Tuesday but ti feel like Monday and I'm already behind. I didn't accomplish nearly as much as I planned this weekend. Mold season is here in full force and my allergies are a little crazy. When I'm taking 10+ Benedryl a day I move a little slower.
No need to give me allergy advice, I've tried everything and I'm actually much better than I used to be. For over 10 years I took 16 Benedryl EVERY SINGLE DAY. I would/could have taken more but if I did it caused me heart problems.Now my average is 4 but during mold season I have to take more. It's just the way it is.
I did play around with glass and have the kiln half loaded for the next firing. I washed a lot of sheets and towels because we had different Airbnb guests every day and in between I worked on the borders for Virginia's Vintage Creeper (sorry Gene). I'm anxious to get this settled so I can get the borders ready for hand work and can put the rest away for a while.
Like everyone who commented I liked the middle one of this set best too. But I didn't like it enough to go with it.
I needed to see how the border will look on the quilt. Remember, this is the inner border. This quilt is going to be huge at about 95" square. This border is actually pretty close to the one I started with in EQ.
Maybe it's all the blossoms that I don't like. I absolutely want the vine so I tried this . I like this better but it's way too busy and leaves no space for quilting.
This is a little less busy and I'm liking it better.
Hmmmm, maybe. It does leave some room for quilting some feathers and I think this quilt absolutely needs feathers. Sorry for the photo quality. By the time I saw that it was blurry I had already take this down.
While I like this one best so far none of them are ringing my bell so expect to have to wade through more of these posts over the next days....or weeks.
