i finally had a moment to breath over the past day and a half. it’s been amazing. i’ve had the place to myself. for some reason the only thing i really wanted to do this entire holiday was get out my sewing machine and work on the quilts that i started months ago.
thanks to a quiet house and a law & order: svu marathon yesterday i did just that. it feels good. really good.
owning my little inn is wonderful. but i do miss having a house to myself at times. there are days i want to stay in my pajamas all day, turn up my music a little too loud and leave a couple dishes in the sink, or a lot of dishes…who’s counting. lately i cherish days like these. they are far and few between.
i managed to piece together the entire top of my quilt.
then, yesterday, i pinned everything together.
i had this light blue gingham vintage sheet i used for the backing. i don’t think it could be any more perfect.
then i started quilting. i feared this part.
i’m happy to report its much easier than i thought. is it perfect? hell, no. but i’m learning to love imperfection these days. attempting to be perfect it just way to much work.
happy 2012 everyone.
