My husband has been at scout camp all week. There hasn't been someone here to tell me to "put the crack pipe down" (that's how he tells me it's time to stop sewing) and I can't sleep. Also, I served Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup for dinner last night. I am explaining because what you're about to see is not right - I should not be able to do this much in seven days. (Bridget asked for chicken soup. That's the kind we had.) Here we go...
A Lone Star wall hanging/lap quilt for Christmas! This is mostly Riley Blake's "Be Merry" from last year (thanks, I will be merry to the tune of 70% off). I thought it would be cute as a lone star:
for sale - I'm making another one for me because I love it) wants to use it as a lap quilt. Right before I sent it off to the long arm quilter I hurried and cut the back and thought I had enough. I was off by about an inch and a half. Curse you, eye ball measurement! So, a stripe of red with snowflakes. (Isn't that quilting adorable? She used a snowflake pattern.)
I got into the mood to finish the rest of my arcs for my double wedding ring quilt. I needed 64, remember, and I was only able to finish up 26 during my Memorial Day road trip. Somehow I ended up with 66. More evidence that I'm possessed? Maybe. Anyway, it's just the top, so stop freaking out. :) It's going to be so beautiful!
