I just finished the two dumbest projects ever!!!!! Not because they’re not really nice things, but because they took so long.
I think I quilted this quilt 10 years ago.
It’s an old Moda Christmas line that included a panel with each letter of the alphabet. I quilted it soon after I got my longarm, which may have been about 2004.
I finished stitching the binding this morning. Good grief! How lame is that? So, it’s packed away in the quilt closet, ready for Christmas of 2015. I’m pretty sure I had it on the bed in the bus one year. I guess I used it without the binding being stitched down.
My other dumb finish is a sweater for My Hero.
The reason it’s dumb is that I think I started it about 8 years ago. I worked on it about a year ago, and then put it away with part of one sleeve left to complete. That’s really dumb! I even had the seaming done on one side before I abandoned it. So I finished it on Saturday while hanging out at my sisters house.
It’s a really nice sweater and the neckline finishing is probably some of the best I’ve ever done. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim Aran, and it’s long discontinued. I loved knitting with it though and I love the sweater. I may have to pick up stitches at the bottom and knit ribbed band. It seems like it may be a little short. I’ll have My Hero try it on and then decide.
I’m actually home alone for a while today. I’m going to enjoy it by cleaning my kitchen. (That was sarcasm. I don’t really enjoy cleaning anything!) I need some order in my life!!! After that, I’m heading for my sewing room to do a little cleanup before it gets out of control again. And then I may work at finishing up a couple of quilts that are nearly done.
And…I have leftover ham, so I think some wild rice soup is on the menu.
I’ll be back soon with some weaving that The Genius did, and a finish for me.
