First things first - 2 more days down with no fabric bought except what was required to finish a few UFOs. That's half the month down. :-)
Second - just look what I found on my porch this morning when I opened the door to toss George out!
Ain't they purty?
Since I don't have anything quilty to show for my past few days how about a REALLY old one? This is one of my very first quilts made in the mid 1980s. My second finished one to be exact. I made David one with navy plaid squares alternating with light blue solid squares then this one. His has long since fallen apart and been tossed. Then I made this one for me and it just doesn't seem to be able to die! It's relegated to the trunk of my car and gets brought in to wash about once a year which is why it's inside right now. Say what you will about poly fabrics but the backing on it and the solid green squares are both poly and are as bright as the day it was made. The cotton fabrics haven't held up as well although the yellow solid and yellow gingham aren't in too bad a shape. But that green calico is in shreds at spots. I hang onto it more as an example of how far I've come than anything. And I do still love that color combination.
Last a picture of an odd sight in my office yesterday. My friend Mary stuck her head in my door and whispered, "Get your camera. You're gonna want a picture of this!" These are a mechanic and a truck driver - neither one very computer literate - attempting to hook up a new printer. I don't think the IT department is in danger of either of these dude's taking their jobs any time soon. LOL! (BTW, I finished installing the printer!)
