Working in a few minute increments,
the Winding Ways quilt top is completed!
I need fabric for the backing so this will be added to the
quilting queue behind the LeMoyne star quilt which needs border fabric...
a trip to the fabric store needs to be squeezed into next weeks' schedule!
The second coat was added to the birdbath
and I spiffed up a few Terra Cotta pots, too.
The rim needed a steady (sort of) hand to paint the rim of the basin-
two coats also!
I had to take a deep breath and realize this project needed time
to complete it;
I had steps that needed 24 hours between them and there
was no hurrying it if I wanted it to be done right.
Now I have to apply sealer to the grout and tiles
so that this birdbath will last 20 years!
I will apply it, rub it out in 30 minutes and let it be for another 24 hours.
I will get to use this birdbath before another week passes!
(son #3 who is in the business of caulk and grout restoration
says it is an easy step that people skip and they shouldn't if they don't want to
repeat a tile and grout project in another 5 years!)
Another pot was painted and it sure makes them look beautiful again!
(the paint is inexpensive as paint goes-$15 a quart at Home Depot!)
The old birdbath is all painted and waiting for me to work on the mosaic for its basin!
(It was exciting to see that the work I did to level
the inside of the basin fit beautifully;
secure and level is a wonderful thing!)
Which I have started....
and will take my time to work on it
without being impatient!
