Chimney Sweep is done!
I started this little quilt last year. You can read about it here.
Since that post I ended up adding a border. I felt the binding would have been too close to the leaves without one.
I did simple straight line quilting in the sashing, vertical lines in the leaf hsts and corners, cross hatch in the blocks and straight lines following the stripes in the border. I used Quilters Dream Request batting. It's so soft.
One yard was enough for the backing and I found the perfect binding fabric at Sew Jersey, our local quilt shop.
Thank you, Sandy, for sharing these wonderful turn-of-the-century Indigo scraps with me! They are fantastic! More to come . . . :)
It was almost a year ago when I bought this neat vest at the NJ Shakespeare sale. It really spoke to me.
I thought it would be a fun gift for my granddaughter who turns 18 this Sunday. I added a new label:)
Wildlife news . . .
This robin is back attacking the window in my husband's office. We went through that last year. It also attacks the mirrors on my car.
No pictures for the next true story . . .
I was out for an early morning walk today (6:00 a.m.) and ended up cutting it short because I was being stalked by a fox. Yes, a fox! I got halfway down the next block and realized what was happening.
I tried yelling at it to go away but it just kept following me--sometimes in the neighbor's yards--or in the street. I started walking backwards so I knew where it was.
When I was close to home I saw a shadow in the yard next door and ran up the driveway and went in the house. That fox followed me all the way to the door. He stood there and we looked at each other. Then he disappeared. Wow! Was that ever scary!
In all the years I've been out walking early in the morning I've never experienced anything quite like this. It didn't look rabid but I'm calling Animal Control to report it.
On another note . . .
