I have been horrible about reporting things of late. It has been a difficult summer for me to concentrate on everything going on in my life. Just lots of family stuff that has worn me down–kids moving here and there (my son moved twice, my daughter about to move, her fiance moved here briefly). Work, of course, has been extremely busy and complicated by extra duties I took on when a coworker was ill. Then, there was the great poison ivy outbreak of 2012, and later everyone descending on my home–including a half-trained puppy. Nope, nothing going on in my life.
But taking an assessment of where I am for the upcoming quilt show–as well as the eternal question “how can I get my sewing room organized better”, I found I had finished a UFO that I don’t see reported anywhere–my puppy quilt. Also known on my UFO list as my string quilt (number 4). The number on this quilt hasn’t breen drawn, I just wanted to finish it for the local quilt show. I quilted the string blocks with freehand feathers, and stippled around the puppies and the pawprints. I’m sure the judges will be harsh on my quilting. It looks amateurish compared to the professional computerized quilting that so many quilts will be sporting. But it’s all mine.
So score one for complete. I intend this one for my bed. I just don’t want my dogs to lay on it. Is that wrong?
