Excuse the shadowy pic. Was trying to make the most of the sunshine.
The Red/Christmas Quilt Top is done. I have sorted the backing, but not taken a photo of that. When I've done the scrappy border for the table runner I showed you in the last post I can baste this and and the table runner and get quilting. Not 100% settled on the quilting of this, so open to suggestions.
Given that I actually only bought two fat quarters of red fabric specifically for the front of this quilt (and one half yard which is going on the back now) it seemed I could rustle up more red than I realised from my stash. Although now my reds are only down to some old fashioned Christmas fabric and scraps!
I was not going to be sewing today. Nope not a stitch was planned for today as Chief was coming down as soon as he'd taken parade this am. When I woke up and eventually rolled over and looked at my phone I saw I had a missed call from him. When I rang him thinking maybe he'd got away earlier than expected, it turned out to be the complete opposite. He'd been to hospital after having a 'turn' in the breakfast queue. Which turned out to be a diabetic hypo. He only remembers feeling light headed. The person he was talking too had thought he was having a heart attack or something and rushed him to hospital. This has meant no Chief coming down here as he's still not 100%. I made the most of my extra time to get on with some sewing. It's not the same as spending the day with him and I feel bad that I'm not better at driving long distances because it wasn't like I could go and look after him. No idea when I'll get to see him now. I think making the quilt top made the best of a bad job.
I hope you've all had a great weekend and I'd best get on with that scrappy border!
