Slow but Steady

 As soon as I finished this windmill top, I laid it out on the floor for my TA-Da!  Nyki instantly claimed it but I could see an Oh,No! instead.
 Somehow, when I arranged it for sewing I goofed on the same row on all four corners.....nothing to do but rip out and resew!  At least I could do it while sitting down.
 Corrected and bordered!  A good project that was started when Mom and Dad were here for the winter!
 I had a few blocks left over and so I added them to the backing for a bit of punch.  It is now in the quilting queue.
 I hung the serger thread racks..........arranged rainbow-ish for my daughter.
I saw these large recycled glass beads at my friend , Sandy's, on a recent visit and asked to borrow it for an experiment.  Yup, I have a new line of support spindles I am going to make.......soon to be offered for sale.

  5. Glad to see you are enjoying your "down" time. Sharon

  6. looks like Nyki is covering up any mistakes nicely - she doesn't seem to care at all:) the spindles look interesting - I like spindle spinning, but I am not very good at using supported spindles... maybe I should practice more? but then how do I use wheel and spindle at the same time?:)

  7. Thank you for the rainbow order -- you made me smile!

    The quilt is lovely. Countdown until I am there to share it all in person! :-D


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

 The Azaleas are very early with the wonderful weather in the 80's we have enjoyed this last week.  There are lots of bees and it i...
