I used my new Mighty Bright light under my extension table for a quick makeshift light box.
Tracing was hard! I don't trace things. I'm surprised how tough that was. I did it though.
Actually, I did it twice. The first time I chose a fabric that I later realized was way too dark. haha Dark as in pure black. So I redid it in the darkest brown I have. Now I'm working on stitching some life into it and embellishing some of the foreground. Then Megan - I'll be done!!
I'm also excited to announce that I've fused interfacing onto the backs of enough roughly cut blocks (from my late cousin's clothing) for at least half of the quilt top. My bad. I've had this fabric from his mother for about a year without being able to muster up the courage to start this project. I was totally overcome with fear of messing this up. So far, so good!
Tonight it our quilt guild's year and potluck. I can't wait. It will be a big gathering with fund, games, and lots of exciting announcements for the next biennial show! ; ) I tried to convince a member to tell me what the theme will be, but she laughed and would not budge. hehe Good for her!
See you tomorrow (or tonight)!
