Another one down.....

Got another binding done.  I like how this one looks on my kitchen wall.


Don't you?


Of course, I have been also trying to whip stitch the binding down on this baby quilt.  That is when Daisy is not hogging it......

One Binding Down

So I got one binding completed.

I machine sewed this binding on being as it is a wall hanging and know one will ever really see the back.


As you can see, I need to perfect this technique yet, my first time doing it and all.


I think it will look nice hanging on the wall still....


.....with or without the attitude.....

Always,

Back on Track.....I think

My ribs are all healed up.  I can sleep in my bed again, and on my side.  So you would think I could just get back on track right?!  Wrong.  Although, I think I am getting there. 

I got my last 2 quilts back from the quilter.  Now I have to bind them.


This is for my great nephew, I do not think I have a binding for this one.  I believe I was thinking I could do a scrappy with the leftover fabric.  I'll have to go check today.

In my opinion, the back is just as cute as the front.  I like the circle quilting my local quilt shop did on it.  Cute!

Now this on I do have the binding fabric for, a stripe that goes with the line.  Have I mentioned that I love striped bindings?


This is another one that I love the backing on.


We had such a GREAT time visiting with the kids and grand baby Lynlee!!!
Her and Piper are such opposites it is fun to watch them together.

LOVE!

Always,

Ribs.......New Job

So my new job is going well.  I'm managing to downsize the amount of pain killers to make it through the day.  Ribs are still painful but better.


My neighbor asked me if I shot my horse.  No......I have been bucked off, rolled with, fell with and so on so many times it is amazing I have not broken more bones.  Really..


So that is my update.  I am hoping to try a little rotary cutting this weekend, as I am right handed and my broken ribs are on my right side.  I'll keep you posted.......


UPDATE:  I never got this post published so here it is.  Now on my second week and ribs are doing good, except the one that fully broke (still really sore).  Couldn't rotary cut, then both hubby and Hailey got the flu at the same time this week, so been a little crazy.  Wanting to work on binding tonight.  

Still sleeping in the recliner as laying fully down is painful, and rolling over.

New job is going good, getting a lot of input in and a little free reign.  Loving it....



Throwback Thursday!!!!  Hailey and Hubby many moons ago...

Always,

Finished Top & Broken Bones

So Thursday I finished the coffee wall hanging. 


These are the fabrics I used.  Love....

Just so you know I completely WINGED making this quilt.  I wanted it to be simple so it wouldn't take forever to piece.



So I made the sashed pieces and then came up with the center strip piece.  I saved the striped fabric for the binding, because I am slightly obsessed with striped bindings....

I used the left-over fabric to make the back.  It is at the quilter's now.

In other news......I broke 3 ribs Friday afternoon.  Had a wreck with my horse, he's OK (the turd).  I broke my 2nd rib and fractured the 3rd and 5th.  Had to stay in the hospital over night since the top broken rib had made a small puncture in the top of my lung.  This morning it was all back to normal though, other than the broken bones!  Pain meds are my friends right now......

They broke on my right side so rotary cutting is difficult at best.  Guess I'll stick to bindings for the next week or two.

It sucks not being able to pick up my little one though!!!  :(

Always,

Gentrie

P.S. I am still starting my new job Monday.......I know I'm stubborn.  I'll take it easy I promise.
