I love a busy week and this is one of those. Most of my weeks are pretty tame, so when it rains it always pours around here. Lots of activities and never enough time. Then the rush is over in a few days and it's back to the normal humdrum. I love a busy week once in awhile. It makes life more interesting and helps keep me organized and on my toes.
I decided last week to take on some of my projects that have been hanging on forever. My sofa in my sewing area has looked like this for many months. Projects that just need to be bound or just need to be quilted or a top waiting to be sandwiched or lots of pieces waiting to be assembled.
y= .2 sin 5x
Once you enter this equation, the program graphs a nice wavy line. You can change the wave by changing the two numbers. That will make the waves taller or shorter and make more or less of them. Once I found a pattern I liked, I printed out the graph with the wavy line. I traced it onto freezer paper and used that for my quilting template. It was so easy. I know I will use Grapher again.
This is the back. Just using up some scraps.
Next up was this little Spool or Hourglass quilt. It is pretty small, but cute. I had it quilted in less than 30 minutes and bound in about an hour.
My friend, Barb gave me this beautiful needlepunch piece for Christmas. It was also on the sofa pile. I finished off the back of it and then went frame hunting.
I found a framed piece in the clearance area at Hobby Lobby that was perfect. I found a gold mat in the framing department and had it cut to size. Using double sided tape, I put the mat in the opening of the frame and stuck the finished piece on the mat with the same tape.
Here it is hanging on my kitchen wall!
Three projects down and many more to go!!
