I am doing a happy Snoopy dance here - just for fun -
for being a quilter, for filling my goals today !
I started out doing one hour work on my nieces birthday gift, and then moved to the next stalled project, this pillow.
It got the rest of the day, and now it is done, buttoned backing and all.
This pattern is from Once Upon a Vine and it is from 1998.
I can remember buying it as I thought the block with the text and the embroidery was so cute.
This was a long time before stitchery became popular.
I still think the pattern is cute.
I started this pillow in late May, early June, and it was planned for my DSisIL's birthday.
It is a bit to bright to fit in her living room but will look perfect on her veranda or at her summer house.
Thanks to my personal challenge of 1 hour work on an Ufo or stalled project every day in August I have made progress on 2 projects today :-)
Unfortunately my iron made a ugly brown mark on the pillow so it is now washed and looks all right again.
My good iron died on me earlier this week, so I have used an old iron, which I now remember why I put away.
It is ok for ironing one shirt but left on for more than a short time it sort of leaks brownish steam.
I went out buying a new iron this afternoon.
I like the iron soles that can be scrubbed clean on need.
Using fusible web a good clean is needed every now and then, even if I am ever so careful.
Tomorrow I will keep on working on my niece's birthday gift +
my DD1's quilt. I need to join the rows on it and prepare it for machine quilting.
I like to alternate between 2 projects.
When alternating I do not get sidetracked so easily.
If I can get DD1's quilt done soon she will be very happy.
The little cat has visited here today and we will cat sit her 3 days next week.
She sure is very cute and she is a great helper with organizing and checking fabrics :-)
