That term, Border Patrol, takes on a whole new meaning when applied to quilting, huh? Past few days have found me adding borders to Chocolates & Cherries and Birds of a Feather. I am thinking about handquilting C&C with fans and brown perle cotten thread. I am not much of a handquilter (or machinequilter, for that matter LOL) but I have really been wanting to do the bigstitch utility quilting lately and this quilt seems a likely candidate. BOAF will go out to my longarmer. They both look, well, so FLIMSY laying across the bed!!! Quilting will bring them to life.
The last photo is of my vintage sewing birds. Finn asked for bloggers to share some of their olden sewing tools so I am obliging! These were purchased at antique malls many years ago when they were still affordable. Last time I saw any around they were going for over $40. Since I am trying to start the downsizing process, I try to resist such wonderful objects! In the front on the right hand side is a wee sewing machine oil can which belonged to my brother-in-law's grandmother. My sister is not a sewer or crafter so I lucked out!
March is upon us. In like a lion here in KC!!! A couple of family crises have limited my time for blogging but I am hoping as March moves on, that will improve.
