I have the appliqué border for my new quilt all designed and I have basted the first ¼ of it onto the quilt. I like it so far and I still hope to get this done in the next few weeks. Haven’t got a name for it yet but I have some ideas. It looks like a somewhat Valentine quilt to me, like flowers and chocolate in fabric. Any suggestions?
Head on over to Judy’s Blog to see what everyone else is up to.
Also, today I am writing this blog post from my new home office set up. In the 1 ½ years that I have been writing this blog my computer has had 4 different homes. It started off in my sewing room but then I couldn’t actually sew much since it took up so much space. Then I moved it to my daughter’s desk but she kicked me out. My son has been graciously hosting my computer on his desk for the last 10 months but I finally decided I need a place of my own. It turns out my bedroom is large and there was an unused corner where I was accumulating (read…piling up junk) that I decided would make a perfect home office so I marched off to the store and actually bought myself furniture. Those of you who know me personally know this is very shocking but yes, I actually bought furniture. For those of you who only know me from this blog I will share that when I was first married, my husband and I needed a sofa. We spent an entire weekend sitting on every sofa from here to Denver and back. I vowed I would never shop for furniture again.I pretty much haven't except in cases of dire need... like Thursaday when I NEEDED a desk.
