This saying means many different things to different people. Today, to me, it means that I have finished my second spool of hand quilting thread and I'm starting my third.
It also means that I have already put 440 yards of quilting thread into my Jubilee quilt. I'm kind of glad I didn't know this particular fact when I started this project. I still have 2 other colors to use, but those will be minimal amounts.
There are many days when I'm not sure what possessed me to want to quilt this 70" square quilt with 1/2" grid cross hatching. But most days I'm so happy with where this quilt is heading.
The dime shows you the scale.
I'm not sure if these visuals are helping me feel better or not!
I will say that I am almost done with the center. It's not perfect by a long shot, but it will be done. Then it will be on to the flowers, the border, and the 224 little petals, among other things. I'm so glad our show is in April this year! I'm hoping that finishing this is still doable.
I got a copy of this picture the other day. My DH and I with our 4 precious grandies last Christmas. It looks like such any easy thing, but I know many of you know how hard it is to get a picture like this. At least no one was crying :).
