New Start

Happy New Year! I hope that there will be happy times in 2019. We are expecting our first Great-Granddaughter to make her appearance any day now! Officially due on the 10th, but as always with babies, they come when they are ready. I am not sure that I am ready to be a Great Grandmother, but at least everything looks like it is going well.

I finally finished tucking all those darn threads on my Ricky Tims' class project! I wet it and blocked it before trimming. Still trying to decide about a faced binding. I don't think I have enough of the blue and I don't know that I would want the orange out on the edge.

Red bowl
Yesterday I went to the quilt guild sew day and wrapped cord for another bowl. I sewed it when I got home. I am happy with it. Happy bright color. Big enough to put a plant in.

I sorted through my quilting books again and culled some more off the shelves. I put them up on my Ebay. I also listed more cross stitch patterns. Great deals on some wonderful books and patterns. I am trying to get my books to fit on one shelf, so more culling will be happening in the near future, keep checking back. Thanks.

  1. Your rope bowl is wonderful. Thanks for linking up with Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday.

  2. I love your projects. I think a blue that is a bit darker for the binding would work.
    Love the bowl color too.

  3. Congrats on your soon-to-be new arrival! Your rope bowl looks great - the color is fantastic! Thanks for linking to MCM. :)

  4. Nifty class project. Isn't there a binding/facing method that brings the fabric to the back so binding doesn't really show? I've never thought of using a rope bowl for a plant. Do you put a little dish in the bottom to contain any liquid that comes out after watering?

  5. I love the rope bowl. Great color choice, especially to liven things up in the dreary winter months. Happy New Year!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you think about my post!
