More boring finishing...........

I got up with a migraine yesterday morning and had to run errands .  The headache was gone after my afternoon nap so I got back to the boring finishing details, cutting binding and hanging sleeve for this quilt.  I really wanted to start something new or at least sew the log cabin blocks together into a top but I decided I had better stick to this.  I got the binding sewn on and started the hand sewing after I took this photo.  Then I spent an hour trying to get label info typed into a document so I can print the labels and sew them on before I have all of the binding hand sewn down on the last 2 quilts.  I'm sure I'll be in a better mood after I get my hair cut this morning.  I hate looking shaggy.
 
I need to start getting the basement cleaned up for the next art quilters day (Jan. 21) so while I was down there doing a load of laundry I started to move this pile and then realized I need to cut 5 more center squares for the blocks from the fabrics laying there with the strips of Fossil Fern fabric.  I'll do that today and then it can be moved off the table and maybe I'll sneak a little time to start sewing the blocks.

The day of a storm I feel good. The day before and today are the worst. Sometimes we have to do boring things. You will feel good when it is done. Chris

Wanda, I know what you mean about looking shaggy. Actually, I hate feeling shaggy.

Your work is looking great - as usual.

I looking shaggy but I hate it when they take off more than you want them too - I had my hair cut about 5 or 6 weeks ago and it is finally now the length that I prefer it at although the area I stick behind my ears is still too short!!

I need to go shopping with you. The fabrics you pick out are fabulous!

You are never boring, LOL! It was a good activity after recovering from a migraine though. The binding and handstitching doesn't require too much brain strain. This way, you're ready for a creative day when you feel better and looking so stylish with your new 'do. :)

You know how some people hate doing binding? I really enjoy that. However, I would PAY someone to do the label and worse yet, the hanging sleeve! OMG, I put those two things off forever.

In fact, when I hang things on my own wall, I usually just pin some loops of matching ribbon on the top edge to slide a bar through.

Lazy, lazy, lazy

Those fabrics are really nice, can't wait to see the blocks.
I know what you mean about the hair, I'm getting mine done today too.

I don't find your finishes boring. Sorry about your migraine. Beautiful fabrics! I'm looking forward to seeing those blocks start coming together :D

Hope you can really smile big at the end of the day with a new hair cut and some finishes completed. Love the fossil Fern fabric. Yes, sneak some sew time in.

The work may be boring for you, but the colors in the photos are glorious for us!

(I am SO with you on the hair cut comment!)

Wanda, even your piles of fabric are pretty! And I admire your stick-to-it-iveness.

suemac said...

You have such amazing fabrics. I am sure once you finish your projects you will feel a sense of relief.

You have such awesome fabrics! Everything looks so nice, and I'm sure it will all work up beautifully. Hope you can relax and enjoy your haircut.

Love that you take an afternoon nap! I take one most days and usually I'm more productive in the evening because of it. My friends think I'm crazy but it works for me! And your posts are never boring.

"More boring finishing"... to you, but I sure enjoy seeing it all. Finishes are like the Frosting on a cake. (*._,*)

Your blues, greens, and lavender are so pretty all cut and getting ready for you to tackle.

p.s. We had quite the snow storm yesterday and it did not quit until the early morning hours today. It is headed your way unless the wind currents change. I see you have a wonderful 50 degrees out there today.

Finishing is boring but a real satisfaction when done!
