Procrastinating? Just a bit.
Yesterday afternoon, I sat at the sewing machine and told myself, "Just try one of those feather wreaths and see how it goes." I fully expected to spend the rest of the afternoon ripping out stitches.
But, you know what? It was easier than I expected.
So much easier, in fact, that I stitched all twelve feather wreaths.
Here is a view of the back. I think it looks so nice on the back because there isn't any of that blue ink to get in the way of the design.
And then I moved onto the borders.
I got two out of the four borders quilted before I realized that I hadn't finished all my school work (and that I didn't have another day off boo hoo). I had to put the quilting away and complete the final evaluation for my student teacher.
I can't wait to finish the last two borders and put the binding on this baby. I always get excited when I'm that close to being done. The finished product is really my favourite part of sewing and quilting. Don't get me wrong - I love the process too.
But looking at something and knowing that I made it is so very satisfying.
