A week ago coming home from the dentist, I was greeted with the sound of dripping water onto the dining room table and by the patio door. Now the irony is that three weeks previous, we just had our ceilings done. New drywall, plaster, and paint, the whole bit. The ceilings before were god-awful due to a bad paint job (for which I was responsible for). :o) Our roof was done two years ago, so there was no cause for leaks. The water has now stopped and no water damage remained. Thank you!
Anyway, during the dripping, I sat in the living room quilting away and listening for any new areas for drips. It was actually soothing and I had quite a good rhythm going …. drip, stitch, drip, stitch, drip,drip,drip. No, slow down, I can’t quilt that fast … drip, stitch, drip, stitch,stitch,stitch. Yes, it finally stopped after a couple of hours! :o)
Anyway, back to the quilt! I made a lap size quilt as a wedding gift for a niece and liked the pattern and colours so much that another one was in the works soon after. Luckily, there was enough material on hand. In hind-sight, I should have given the niece the bed quilt instead. Oh well, she is promised a bed size quilt soon.
This quilt was machine-quilted (SID) in the middle and the border was hand quilted. Why not combine the two? If I can’t do the swirly bits by machine, then I’ll do them by hand. As well as quilts on our beds, my dining room always has one up. I love the look! New curtains and painted walls are in the works but will have to wait until spring.
Have a great day!
P.S. Sister, I haven’t told Mom about the water … didn’t want her to be worried.
