finish Tori's sweater - close, but I need a button
The kids have next Friday off school, so I must, must, MUST have that quilt layered and quilted before then, else we're moving into the following week. The event is the 21st, that's cutting things too close. (Plus there'd be no time to show it off ahead!) ;o) That week, the week of the 16th, is busy, busy anyway, I know I'd have no time. I'm stuck since I'm almost out of spray baste - I could, perhaps, drive into Burlington this afternoon, but the weather's a little iffy, so I'd rather not. I've got as far as I can with it, and I'll leave it at this stage and go in to town tomorrow. The applique is all done, and as I said, gorgeous from a distance of 4 feet or more. I'll make sure it's displayed a wee bit back from the silent auction table. And not too well lit. We're all our own worst critics, though, right? So I'm sure it's perfectly fine to everyone else.
The weather's been warming a little - it still goes below freezing at night, but it's 45º right now. The bulbs in the garage bed have been stirring - it's cozy up against that southwest facing wall. The field in the back is still snow covered despite the heavy rain we had yesterday evening. Everyone else's snow is gone. Must be my cold heart or something. ;o)
