|Ondie Delivered My Balloon!|
I usually rise before anyone else, and when Jerry and Ondie get up, Jerry gives Ondie the command, "Find Mom!" On Sunday morning, Ondie arrived in my sewing room with a Mothers Day balloon attached to his collar. Aaawww! I had to record this with my camera. Here is another picture of Ondie:

I put a quilt on the frame this week to be quilted by Emma and Electra. It is a gorgeously colorful little thing that I am quilting for a customer. Right now I'm trying to decide on the quilting design. I picked out a lovely tangerine quilting thread for it.
|Don't These Colors Just Pop!|
I did get my thrift shop fabrics washed, ironed, and trimmed into strips.
The biggest project that I'm working on is the backing for Lemaster's Old Tobacco Road. I posted a pic of this back in January that was taken in Bonnie Hunter's class that I took. I brought the top for Show & Tell.
If I'm EVER to get it quilted, the first thing it needs is a backing! So I gathered up lots of strips and pieces of a yard or less to make random rows, punctuated by orphan blocks and leftovers.

Since the color story of the top is brown, green, yellow and orange, that's what I used on the back.
Some of these orphan blocks have been in a drawer since the 80's!
Some of the horizontal strips before being sewn together.
Well, that's been my fun and games. I think I'll get back to it.
