Ok, school is out and at some point this weekend I do hope to do some actual sewing! I've spent the last few days kind of "decompressing" and also trying to clean my house - wow, what a dive! Things get a little out of hand when you only do serious cleaning during July and August. LOL
Also on Wednesday I went across the border to Maine with a friend and bought some CHEAP fabric and "Warm n' Natural" cotton batting. Americans don't know how lucky they have it when it comes to the price of quilting supplies, and most other things for that matter. Yeesh! The same quilt batting that costs $21.99/yard here was $6.97.yard at Walmart across the border. Also I got a lot of the fabric for $1.99...holy mackerel! Even with having to pay the duty at the border you still come out way ahead.
I'm getting way behind in the Old Red Barn quilt-along not just because I've been so busy, but also because I'm very scared to try the free-motion quilting! I hate doing something and not having it turn out well, even it if is the first time I've ever tried it. Perfectionism=procrastination I guess.
