Y'all, basting pins are slow! Last night I ran out of basting spray mid-way through basting Love in Wonky Stars.
So, trusty basting pins to the rescue. A slow, somewhat painful rescue, that is.
But we're ready to quilt. I'm hoping tonight!
And speaking of slow, would you like to see my never ending project? This is the one began over a year ago and rescued this February. It was put aside again for all the quilts I've churned out this March. Last night I thought I finally had everything ready to finish. Take a look...
Now, you'd think that this was everything I'd need to finish a humble clock. But, nooooo, I hadn't yet painted the shiney brass clock hands. In my desperation I made a trip to Walmart for spray paint (if you know me, you know I was d.e.s.p.e.r.a.t.e.) and with complete abandon spray painted them myself. I don't know that I've every spray-painted before. But, Brandon says my work "passes." So, last night with very High Hopes, I again set out with can-do spirit to finally assemble the clock.
Thwarted yet again by an unsuitable hole punch (see random purple item above).
I am wishing that this weekend, a friend will come to my rescue. A scrapbook diva, hole-punch wielding friend to whom I am gifting a baby quilt on Saturday. Crossing fingers.
