Why is so hard to get back into the swing of things after a long break. I am so very thankful that I only had 2 days at work this week!! I don't think I could have made it through another day, I am so looking forward to the weekend.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes. It wasn't the best birthday ever, but my husband made sure we got to do something special. He is so sweet! I think the main reason for the blahs is that I am so tired. This past week just wore me out. Hopefully in between all the errands I need to run this weekend I can get some time to relax.
I would love to get some time to quilt. I guess I have teased long enough about the big huge project that scares me to death. I have decided to make a quilt for my king sized bed. I have looked and looked for the perfect bedspread and still hadn't found the perfect one yet when while cruising through some online fabric stores I found this charm packet at the Fat Quarter Shop.
I don't have a sewing machine and mom was going to give me her old one, but an aunt who quilts recommended that I get a new one. So I went out and bought this at Sears. It is a Kenmore and comes with a 1/4 in seam foot and a walking foot. Perfect for quilting!
this pattern (Idea A) for the quilt, or I could do Idea B. This would eliminate the need for the corners to match up, but I have no clue how that would affect the actual quilting of the quilt. I really want this to look good. Should I go with Idea B, or just let go of perfection?
