So, the rocket ships quilt got pieced and sandwiched yesterday.
Here's a photo of the top:
And here it is sandwiched and rolled - the dents are from the cats sleeping on it:
I've quilted around 3.5 rocket ships so far. When I went to start, I had NO navy cotton thread. Hmpf. So the mid-kid and I went to Hancock's after karate and bought thread, navy and some red perle cotton for his quilt. I still don't have the variegated thread I want - I think I'll have to stop by the LQS on Monday to see if they have any that would work.
Living near DC, there's a lot of [FREE!!] wonderful stuff, but we too rarely take advantage of it. I didn't find out about the quilt show at the Renwick until about 4 days before it closed, so I didn't make that one. Not this time! Look at this: A Stitch in Vine: Botanical Quilts, a textile show at the U.S. Botanic Garden. Not only that, but it runs at the same time as the orchid show!!!!!!!
1. My ankle is better - doesn't hurt so much, even though I don't have full range of motion back.
2. Watching TMOTH teach the mid-kid how to work on his Pinewood Derby car (the race is tomorrow and the car needed to be done today)
3. Sponge-Bob Squarepants and the Backyardigans
4. Seed catalogs
