|"Blessings" Runner - quilted|
Having finished and bound the "Blessings" table runner yesterday, I decided to quilt my latest 15 x 15 piece. It's now ready for its facing, label and sleeve.
This is the first of the three ideas I had for the current theme, "Memories", and is inspired by my faith practice. As the 'Reveal' is not till July 31/August 1, I'll just give you this wee taste of a quilting detail or two:
After a walk to the Post Office and a light lunch, it was time to tackle what will be my Major WIP of the Summer: painting my kitchen cabinet doors, 2 of my kitchen walls, and having a new counter top installed (flooring later, too, if the budget can handle it!)
Today's First Step? Removing the first 9 doors for washing with TSP, sanding, priming (outside) and painting. These will be followed by the 6 below-the-counter doors, but I'm leaving those for as long as possible because those cupboards are at cat's eye level...if you get my drift...
Who knew you could work up a sweat taking down kitchen cabinet doors?
Posting this to WIP Wednesday over at The Needle and Thread Network...and then...maybe a nap!
P.S. If you follow "Mark on the Body"...it was up-dated this morning...
