Oh! And my MIL gave me a pack of new blades for my rotary cutter!!! WoooHOOO!!!!!! Those suckers are expensive and I never seem able to justify getting a new pack! LOL Mine still cuts... so I'm still good... right?? LOL Well... after using mine the other day, and it wasn't cutting so well.... without tons of pressure... lol... she comes the next day with these! :D Thanks Mom!!!! I can't believe the difference!! I should have caved and got some a lonnnnggg time ago!! hahaha!!
border strips... just waiting for the sashing...
Worked on mine after they left. Got the middle done!
And got it all put together!! AND got it basted last night! Yay! :)
Ran into a little issue though. And cant figure out what i did wrong?? See those ripples in the frabric, on this edge of the pic?? Everything has been pressed... and even during pressing those ripples were showing up :( I didn't have to ease the fabric in anywhere... so how does that happen?? I'm sure it's going to give me fits when quilting it!! A bit scared to start now! LOL This is a gift for a friend... and i don't want it to be all puckered and chunky in my sewing :( Anyone out there have any thoughts on this?
Funny, this is only 60x60... i didnt have that problem on the bigger ones! (thank God!! lol) But I dont want it to happen again... so gotta figure out what i did wrong!
Thanks for your suggestions on the chick flicks!! I haven't seen several of them! I haven't watched Marley & Me ... yet. Knowing it is going to be a major tear jerker, and having a bit of a headache already, just didn't want to go there the other night! LOL But Bailey said he'd watch it with me this week :)
Been hot hot hot here this last week. Dan and I have been riding the scooters alot. Doing a little geocaching and just enjoying our time with our kids!! Love summer!!! :)
Going to help my girlfriend paint her dining room today.
Hope you have a blessed day, filled with smiles!
