My brother, SIL, and nephew came over last night to deliver a sewing project for my nephew. They had a birthday present for me! I was a beautiful wooden incense box with incense.
A couple of years ago they gave me this Buda incense burner, so now I am all set!
I was so tired when I finally got home from work. I had been out in the rain helping move gladiators (cones) around before and when the concrete truck showed up for setting the posts for a fence for the site. Dragging those gladiators was hard work. The rubber base is heavy - 13 to 15 pounds - and moving as many as I did I could feel it in my shoulders and back. I then had to play traffic cop since the truck block the sightline for parents pulling out of the parking lot. Oh, the concrete truck showed up right before school let out. Great timing - not!
I had sorted out the batting by color and size. I found two pieces that were the right size for baby quilts already.
I use stitch 13a on my machine to sew the batting together rather than a regular zig zag stitch which can cause a ridge to form.
I now have five pieces of batting for baby quilts - the two that were the right size already and three more I stitched together with pieces.
I have another one laid out that is eight pieces of batting I will have to sew together
This is what I have left of the white batting. I will try and get one more made out of these
Next I will sew together the natural batting scraps.
I didn't get to take a half day vacation Wednesday or Thursday because of the fencing contractors on site, but they don't work Friday's so I plan on making it a long weekend and take that half day today.
Have a great weekend!
