All that being said, there were still beautiful and happy moments. I might have had to look a little harder for them, but thank goodness I had a reason to! I might have missed them, otherwise! Here's a peek at some smiles from the week.
I LOVE binding all rolled up! I use old ribbon spools to wind the folded binding. Then, the spool goes in a box on the floor, and it unrolls easily as I sew the binding on the quilt. I had my bonus happy moment this week when I got the joining of the ends right ON THE FIRST TRY!!! (That usually doesn't happen.) The blade of my scissors is reflecting a piece of Mexican embroidery that hangs on the wall. I love that!
We had some severe thunder storms on Thursday. We were fortunate to not have any damage close by, but we sure got some amazing skies as the sun went down that evening! My camera didn't do a great job of capturing it, but we all agreed we'd never seen skies quite like them!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. We have a weekend full of performances for my oldest daughter, a graduation party (and T-shirt quilt gifting!),a sleepover, and of course, final, final touches to put on fair projects on the agenda. I hope there's also time to clean up the sewing room and prep the next project. Oh! And a post about the finished quilt will be coming soon.
Even though I missed the Friday party, I'm going to share my post over at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co. Amanda has some beautiful pictures of her week, and some others have linked up to share their happy lists, too. Be sure to check out the comments on her post to find out who to visit!
