Now that is has been sunny for like four days in a row (definitely an anomaly here), it feels really weird to work on this quilt.
I'll be sure to show you the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly when I'm done! I've learned that I excuse pretty much any quilting mistake I make with the "oh well, you won't notice it when it's washed and done" line. I'm very lazy and would rather use the seam ripper on my eye than on quilting. One of the more interesting things for us all to find out will be just how bad something has to be for me to rip out quilting. We haven't found it yet, and believe me, you'll be aghast when you see some of these dogwoods. ;)
I also missed my quilt guild meeting yesterday, which is too bad because they had a great guest speaker (talking about reverse applique) and put together a cool challenge quilt (everyone was assigned a portion of Van Gogh's "Starry Night.") You can see what I missed here--it's pretty cool! I had my aforementioned Skype writing group though. When the five members live from California to New York, and one has a regular 8-5 job, you take whatever meeting time works when you can find it!
Anyone else watch Mad Men? With every passing season and episode, I fail to see how anyone on the show will have even a reasonably happy ending. Yipes. But hey, peach martinis.
