(1) crunchy peanut butter on raisin bread
(2) plants in a greenhouse
(3) finding two seats together at a crowded movie
The trick, I b'lieve, is to get there before they turn out the lights!
I'm making slow progress on my Orca Bay mystery quilt, while I keep reminding myself "Bonnie said it's not a race... it's not a race..."
I got three rows pieced, and they look great!
They're not sewn together yet but I like what I'm seeing so far. I kept getting mixed up with the direction of the blues until I realized the stripes in the blue string blocks follow the uphill/downhill slant of the red string blocks. After that, it was a piece o' cake! I like that secondary red block around the black block, it's so pretty. Looking at a picture of Bonnie's finished quilt is one thing, but when you see your own up close and personal - and you realize you did it? Man, what a feeling!
I haven't pieced the bits for the border, because after seeing the finished quilt (as gorgeous as it is!) I think I might like to try a different border treatment - we'll see!
I finally got the hanging sleeve sewn on my red and white challenge quilt while I was getting my car serviced... why is it so difficult for me to do that last little thing? I get the main part done, then agonize over the binding... not because the binding is difficult, but because it's my least favorite part of the quilt! Go figure. Then, when I FINALLY get the binding on, I fool around and it takes me awhile to get the sleeve and label on. What's up with that?? Anyway, it's done - and done is good.
So that's my story and I'm sticking with it - sew forth and sew on til later; have a great Sunday.
