Decision made...



When I finished the top of Garden Trellis, I could not find anything in the sewing room that was suitable for a backing (go figure!). So I studided all of the fabrics in the top and decided that it would have to be one of them. I bet I changed my mind 10 times on which one to choose. I had already made the binding in the dark green paisley. I finally decided on the one of the darker reds. I ordered it from FatQuarterShop Monday morning. The fabric was in my mailbox yesterday afternoon. Yipee. Guess I will piece the back this weekend but this weekend is dedicated to the baby quilt. Peggy Barkle told me my sewing machine senses fear about quilting. Maybe she is right. But I did by it it's own special fancy light AND I finally mounted it on the machine. (I have yet to try it out because I have to get down on the floor and plug it in....baby steps!

I got a personal report on you and Gretch taking advantage of poor Melissa!!! Shame Shame... Sarah told me of your misdeeds ! I guess Melissa will have to stock up in Houston. As for me I've been busy sewing and designing.
