Okay, so I finished the quillow for the party. Now, I'm almost finished with the Christmas quilt. Which means... I now have time to start my Diamond Chains quiltalong! I will be posting the first main information about it tomorrow. I know! I'm sorry, but things kind of got away from me and some things HAD to be finished by deadlines. I will be finishing the quilting on the Christmas quilt today, posting the first information on the quiltalong and binding the Christmas quilt tomorrow, and then I will be posting two tutorials for the block involved in the quilt. You can choose the method you wish to use. Then I might breathe for a minute or two...or twelve.
In the meantime, I picked up my Amy Butler fabric my friend Jo got for me at the yard sale. I'm so excited! I started pulling piping off one of my chairs yesterday. Tell me this; why is that an attempt to remove ugly fabric is similar to trying to break into Fort Knox? I think there have to be about 75 staples in the back of this one chair alone. Unreal. And they are attached tightly. Very tightly. I'm having quite a time getting them out. I think the upholsters who originally did this REALLY liked the fabric; or they really didn't like me. I may just say bump it and just cover over the existing fabric after removing the piping. I wasn't planning on redoing the piping anyway. I think these chairs could really do with an update though. Don't ya think?
