Inch By Inch, Row By Row
Worked a lot Friday and today on the Scrapbag Explosion. Whew! Lots of seams. But I was so anxious to see that design emerge where the 16-patch has the little triangles coming off each side. I know, I know--I am easily amused!!!I would love to have the top sewn together before next Saturday. We are leaving next Saturday for my dream vacation. We are going to ITALY!!! It has been planned for months and months but I never thought the time would get here. So excited. I have never been to Europe and love to visit historical places with lots of beautiful art and scenery--and oh, the food and the wine!! Hope to get lots of good photos. I have really enjoyed seeing all the neat pincushions that several bloggers have posted so I took a little shot of some of mine! The boiled wool ones on the right side are the ones that are used every day. The two magnetic ones on the left get pressed into service a lot too. The ones in the middle are some that I make every year for the Quilt Show Boutique--just fun. We are off tonight to attend our 45th high school reunion. I love the line I heard from a comedian on TV once after attending her reunion, "Who ARE these old people??"
