The projects continue...
My mother gave me my grandmother's vintage chenille bedspread some months ago and it had been sitting in the sewing room since. At first, I thought that I would cut it up into pillows because it had a fair amount of damage, but because of the center pattern, I just couldn't. Instead, I removed the damaged upper edge leaving about two-thirds of the spread. I used a zig-zag stitch to hem it and, hopefully, I've disguised it well enough to use on my bed by folding down the comforter over the top.
(Sorry about the photo quality...another dreary, wintry day here.)
The project that I am puttering with for my niece (the one who thinks this blog is all "Martha Stewart and dull") is coming along slowly. It will include these quotes about music already printed up on fabric and, hopefully, I'll have something more to show soon.
After all that work on streamlining my blog to get it to load faster and somehow I was tempted yet again to slow it down. A Woman Who Is IS responsible for this! =>
You would not believe how much I blog hopped right here in my own blog after that widget was installed. Very tempting! Anyway, if the page is loading too slowly for you, please let me know. I've never had the option to have similar subject material listed at the end of each post because I edit so much. This seemed a good alternative. I do wish that it would stick with the first three it selects for a post without continually rotating.
Thanks for visiting...I promise to slow down long enough for a cup of coffee and a muffin soon!
