I've been feeling good enough to start finishing up Birdie's quilt. Two nights ago, I was about 45 minutes from finishing the quilt (squeeee!) when the most frustrating thing happened: I ran out of thread. Now, normally I'm a white thread kinda gal. I love using white on dark colors for a modern touch, and if you run out- no big deal, there's always another spool of white around somewhere. This time, though, I decided to use pink thread. It looks fantastic against the white backing. (Sorry, I wasn't agile enough to jump up and grab the camera, but I should have some to show for next week's post!) So I've fallen a few days behind in finishing while I wait to get out and get more pink thread. Grrrrrr.....
Just to remind you what I'm working on, here's the top of the quilt handing over Birdie's crib:
I was originally thinking about doing this for a modern backing....
but I chickened out and decided to go uber simple. :)
We've also been planning some updates to our backyard after being inspired by Camilla. Pallets for landscaping? Genius. These are some other ideas I've fallen in love with:
I won't tell you which project(s) we're going to take on, but it's going to be cheap, fun, and easy! My three favorite words.
See you next week with new projects!
