Remember when I told you that my tomato bushes are going nuts this year? Well, I wasn't kidding! I bet if you stretched out the vines, they'd reach to the clouds and then you could call me "Jack". Sara wanted to see. I think she thought I was kidding. Ahhhhh.......not so much! This is two bushes, Sara. One big red one and the other is a cherry tomato bush. Can you believe?
On another note, remember this pic that I showed you last time:
Well, it turned into this:
I think it's just as much fun as those giant paper clips I found among my old patterns and things. Perfect for clipping on my fence for picture taking without making holes in my quilts, wouldn't you say? The finished quilt measures 18 1/4 square with 100 different polka dotted fabrics and is ready to be hung with sleeve and everything! I called it, "Lotsa Dots". (I'm so clever, huh?? Duh!!) Here's a close up:
So far, I think I will be keeping that quilt. It makes me smile! Besides, it's not my partners taste at all, I don't think. Well, you know my motto, try, try again so I'm already at work on Number #2. Check this out:
Now I'm wondering about this one. I think I got her style, but I'm wondering about colors. Eikes, this partner stuff is hard. Sometimes I think I'm right on and then again, I wonder. In any event I will continue. Yesterday I got this far:
I'm using #30 weight variegated thread to do some straight line quilting. The fun is in burying the threads. Ugh! I figured if I did a section at a time, I wouldn't be so frustrated. Note that I got a bit off center........thus the tape. I'll fix that in no time flat! (Hopefully???) Now to continue! Hope you have a good day too. Looks like I'll be doing some sewing.
