**Now on to the quilt talk:
This quilt was started back in July as a 4th of July quilt. Then didn't get finished, no surprise. And, still not finished.
Then a couple weeks ago, I dug the quilt top out of my WIP stack and decided it would be a great finish for Veteran's Day. After a string a no good events, this one is ALMOST done.
First, I started quilting the top. Hated every stitch, then proceeded to rip out all the work.
New plan was just wavy lines, reminds me of a flag blowing in the wind. It worked, yay.
Then I ran out of time to get the binding on! Answer, photograph without binding.
Then, set up the shoot take out my camera, snap a few shots. The camera dies. I am up visiting my parents and I don't have my real camera charger or the bag of accessories. Epic fail. Looks like no photos.
Go inside the house and admit defeat to my family. Family's solution, use my sisters regular camera. Think to myself, ok, the photographs will at least be finished. Photographed the quilt, then the pictures are horrible. Back home to photograph the quilt again.
After a crazy experience of nothing going right, this is finally semi-finished. This week I will spend the time sewing the binding on. At least this will be another project off my list of WIPs.
Now, I am off to spend the day with my mom at IKEA (sounds of me squealing like a child with delight).
