Yesterday I had more company come to visit and spent the whole day...yes, the entire day shopping (to the market and then the grocery store), and cooking/baking. I finished the last salad just as the company arrived. I told my very appreciative family that doing all that work reminded me of why I love quilting so much. If I would have spent the whole day quilting, I would have accomplished something that would still be here 50 years in the future. However, what I accomplished yesterday in 8 hours of work was almost completely gone in 30 minutes!! Oh well, as much as I love quilting, I must not starve my family!!!!
I have made some progress with my Criss Cross quilt. I put the dark sashing fabric all around the outside and then added a green border. I just love this green fabric from Nancy Halvorsen's William's Inn line.
have picked out a thread for the machine quilting...a King Tut varigated thread, which goes through my machine without ever breaking, no matter how fast I quilt! I am looking forward to some relaxing machine quilting...which will be much more fun than working in the kitchen all day!!
