I’m well on my way to the toe on my second Fuzzy Feet felted slipper, then on to learning how to Kitchener stitch. But more importantly, I’m almost done with my last customer quilt of the year…and it’s GORGEOUS!
Yes, I like the quilting design I’m putting on it, and yes, I picked something that took way longer than it probably needed to, but when I first saw this quilt…well, I fell in love. It’s just so peaceful.
I love bright colors. I’m animated. I’m always on the go. This quilt is none of that. I’ll be finishing up the border tonight, while my husband is at work. As much as I’m dying to, I’m not going to post a sneak peak of the quilting, but you’ll know what I mean when you see it.
Once this quilt is finished, then I can focus on my own projects:
Today, though, we need to go car shopping. Last week my husband’s 20 year old van broke down, the one he uses for his side jobs doing drywall. It’s been very enlightening having only one vehicle, and truly emphasizes the lack of bus service in Boise!
I’ve drawn a line in the sand on spending anymore money for repairs; there’s over 194,000 miles on it! We’ve already put in more money than we should have, trying to get it to last until Spring. For the most part it’s been a good vehicle, but it’s time to replace it. Terrible timing, though.
Oh, and my mom is coming to visit at the end of the week, after Christmas, so we’ll have our own celebration then.
For those of you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you enjoy the festive atmosphere of this holiday season. For those of you who do, Merry Christmas!
