I attacked the rest of the quilt basting this morning, but... oops - ran out out my little brass safely pins. I keep them in a little basket I made from pine needles several years ago. (The pine needles made me sneeze through the process, so I never made another.)
Can you see what was at the bottom of the basket? I little gold heart charm. I have no idea where it came from, but it was a little bit of happy to start the day!
I ran out to Hobby Lobby and restocked my safety pins but never got back to basting - tomorrow I will DEFINITELY finish basting this quilt.
Here's my new little NEON friend. He was hanging out on the patio today and was smart enough to keep away from the doggies.
I still haven't received my books. Maybe tomorrow???? :)
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
