My friend Lisa challenged me to a "Weekend Warrior" Fitbit challenge this weekend, and so I was determined to get my steps in yesterday. Along the way, I marveled at the dandelions in our field.
That's our little pump house off to the left there. The dandelions are impressive, no? This is what happens when the Resident Mow Man has seven acres to keep mowed while simultaneously holding down a full time job. I keep telling him he needs to retire...like, today. Not to worry...there he is now!
He mows around the trees and rocks on his little riding mower, and then switches to the tractor for the big stuff. Before he got started, I walked around and took a few pictures of our prettiest weeds. History now, I'm afraid.
So I walked intermittently throughout the day while finishing up the top for the Written in Thread wallhanging. This started with the making of a strata of twenty-one 1.5-inch strips. Somehow I misread the directions because I really only needed 11 strips. Geez. Oh well. I put it in the pouch of scrap bindings, and I'll be able to turn it into a binding for a small quilt sometime.
So then I cut my strips into strips and voila! One finished quilt top.
This was made from scraps and fabrics in my stash. Even the embroidery floss colors were all from leftover floss. I scoured my stash looking for something I could use for the back, and this one seemed as good as any. I have a yard of it, which was just a little more than I needed. The quilt finishes up at 22 x 26 inches.
So that means I'm onto my bonus points project today...the wine carrier. Lots of time. I think I'll get it finished...and you know how I loves me my bonus points.
