Little Molly got her green sock off today and went straight to the groomer!! She really needed a bath and a haircut. I can't wait to see the transformation.
The last few custom orders were all beautiful and a pleasure to quilt. The first was a giant ocean themed quilt, with blocks and borders all related to the sea. I had to do a little surgery on one of the borders, but you can't see it, so I guess I did a fine job! The second quilt was a smallish red and tan pieced beauty. Loads of pieces! The customer wanted stitch in the ditch for the border, feathers in the triangles and a meandering feather in the body. It turned out really nice. The next quilt was for my friend Carole. We took a class for the hummingbird quilt from Darlene Zimmerman, and she got hers done...mine is still in pieces in a bag. This sweet quilt was fun to do and turned out very pretty, if I do say so myself! Then I did a table topper for my friend Christine. She does hand embroidery, but can't sew a lick. I did the quilting and put on the binding. I can't imagine letting anyone put down a dish on this quilt, so I think it must be for show only.
Mr Wazoo had his share of work, too, but I had to do one of them because the customer wanted the borders all done differently. I call that low custom. Mr Wazoo calls it impossible. I finished it this morning and then went off to the store for our Thanksgiving food. We are having a nice steak, baked potato and salad for Thanksgiving dinner!! No vegetarian tofurky for this couple...and a cheery pie for dessert. Yum. I plan to veg out with the Macy's parade and lounge in my jammies until noon. My day off.
I hope everyone out there in Blogland has a wonderful holiday. I'll see you on the flipside!
