The word of the day is green.
Here I am with the quilt:
ready to quilt the top and bind the edges. I've washed and ironed the top and backing. I've watched a couple of YouTube videos on doing the binding. I pinned the top, batting and backing together and I am ready to quilt. But I need some green thread that matches the backing material. I don't have the right green color. Rats. Everything is closed today since it is Easter so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to get some.
I got another few rows of detached buttonhole stitched. This is going kind of s l o w l y. I guess I should aim to get one hump a day stitched.
On the Drawn Thread pocket, I've gone rogue. The two green flosses on this are very close together. I used them both on the top design. You can hardly tell them apart.
So when it came to the latest "spot" I grabbed a different color.
I used some Gloriana Winter Woods. I hope I haven't ruined it. I guess it's my way of personalizing this.
I can't wait to see Claire this afternoon (via Facetime). Maybe we'll get to see her open her Easter stuff. This Easter I haven't eaten three packages of chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies. No jelly beans. No circus peanuts. But it's okay, I have lots of fun stuff to do.
