I got the entire quilt top ready for quilting today. I am especially crazy about reproduction fabrics and I used only those I already had on hand! Plus, all of the off-white fabric used came from curtains that were never going to be used again.
My promise to myself during these hard economic times (someone's lying if they keep telling us about all the economic good news--no one I know is in a better place financially this year!) is that I will use up what I have for my sewing and quilting unless I need a bigger piece for the project. In fact, I am purposely looking at scrappy quilts only so that I can use what I have.
Another gray day today with a hint of snow in the air. Stew is in the crock pot and the woodstove is about to be put into use again for the rest of the day and night. Time for tea!
