I ended up going to see my nephew play, because the friend who was going to come over for a binding lesson had to cancel. Apparently if you machine quilt for too long on her machine it overheats and melts some of the plastic gears inside. What the heck?! Added comment: I will post what the service person finds once she gets her machine back. Maybe there is something else other than machine quilting for hours that contributed to the problem.So she couldn't finish the machine quilting and will have to wait two weeks to get it back from the repairman. She has a Husqvarna. Here is my nephew playing with Colin John. After the first set I asked Michael if he knew all the songs they played and he said he only had heard two of the songs, all the rest of the material was new to him!
Here are the drapes installed. They are short enough to clear the baseboard heaters. I only made one set of tie backs and the mother asked for another set for the front window. I have enough fabric leftover so that is not a problem. The tie backs are installed high so the babies can't reach them.
I worked Saturday and Sunday on the I Spy quilts. Here is where they are right now
And now the giveaway. As you all know I have been working on the re-do bedroom for a while now. Well, it is as done as it can be at this point in time. I still have to solve the water issue before I can install the baseboards and I have to wait until I save a little money until I can buy the closet doors. I have a room upstairs that also needs closet doors so I want to buy both sets at the same time so when I get my brother over to help me install them, we can do both at the same time. I will eventually move in the bed frame. It rained or threaten to rain all weekend so I could not spray paint the metal bed frame. The shelf along the west wall still needs some primping. I installed the door on Sunday - not an easy job to do by yourself! I ended up having to plane the top of the door because it was sticking and would not close. But it is installed with new hinges and a new door handle and I am a happy camper!
Here are the befores and afters - then I will talk about the giveaway.
