and what is blogtoberfest you might ask...
it is to post every single day in october.
day one is an ode to my attempt at hand quilting.
i have my kaleidoscope quilt basted
(thank you to my mr. You were a great help!)
my knees were a little sore after crawling around on my hard wood floors.
reminder, use feet instead next time.
it sure is pretty though.
i haven't started quilting yet. primarily because i am a little disgusted with myself... let me tell you why
about 8 years ago i went to a garage sale with my grampa. we hit the jackpot at some old lady's house as she was doing a serious destash of her "old" sewing supplies.
(source) beautiful wood, very sturdy. they don't make them like that anymore.
i had been doing a lot of embroidery at the time and thought it could be handy.
i did not realize it was supposed to be used as a quilting hoop and at that time had
NO intention of EVER doing any hand quilting.
fast forward six or seven years, i hadn't used it for embroidery and still had no intention of hand quilting.
in a fit of cleaning and with the thought of "why would i ever hand quilt?"
i sent it off to Good Will.
stupid, stupid, stupid!
when i decided i wanted to hand quilt this little masterpiece i smacked myself in the head.
stupid stupid stupid!
the plan... finish by the end of october!
we will see how i do.
