Hey folks! As I promised, an update on the quilt!
So, after much though, I decided not to enter the yo-yo quilt in the fair this season, because I want it to be looking amazing. Right now, it's more than halfway done, but I though I'd give myself a little more time, so that I can get it looking really beautiful for the fair. I still need to finish a few more tiles (the latest photo is not accurate, but I will take a pic tonight and upload it!) Then, once all the tiles are done, I am making mini yo's out of the scraps to fill out the edges, which I will line in a different gold. After all of that, I have to make a sleeve so that it can be hung on a rod for display. Although, Chris and I plan on putting it over our comforter for daily use, the display sleeve will mainly be necessary for the fair.
In other news, Chris's mom got me a mini sewing machine and today I finally sat down and learned how to use it! Exciting, right? I've wanted one for like forever, and last weekend she surprised us with it! So, I tested it out with this extra fabric and made a little pouch for car keys. Then, I pulled out a couple charm packs (pre cut fabric squares for quilting) and finally finished my very first quilt top. It's a bit rough, but I like it! Will post pics! Anyhow, the iBoost sewing machine is worth the money. Very compact, nice for traveling and small apartments filled with a bazillion other crafty things.
I decided I am going to enter some of my embroidery in the fair, the big one of the Kentucky, Unbridled Spirit; and the chickens. I may enter Disco Chicken of Love as well, if I get him done this weekend. I'm also making some small chicken embroidered hats for the WBFP Cohort. Oh, y'all! I am so excited to meet all of them! I met a few at this Wendell Berry event about a week ago, and have been chatting with everybody on Facebook since. Less than 50 days until move in!
