Running on Empty
I only had 3 hours of sleep as I was working on deadline quilts again. I went over to Greta's to deliver another quilt. She had her twin grandson's Noah and Issac there. Aren't they just a couple of cuties? One has blue eyes and the other has brown.
Yesterday was a long day and so I didn't get this quilt started until midnight! I finished it at 7 A.M. and then grabbed 3 hours of sleep before I had to go to Greta's to drop it off. This was to be a birthday quilt, which is why the rush. Her friend Yvonne had made the same quilt so I will have to get a photo of it sometime, perhaps when it is hanging at the show. I did it differently. I had actually finished it before the white quilt went on the machine.
Finally a full view of the the great white quilt that I did for Greta. Not the best photo, but the best under the circumstance with her busy grandsons. lol This is the same quilt that I had some thread run through my machine and it picked up some dirt and grease. Finally figured it was coming from under where the machine's handle bars are attached. I got some good advice from a gal that mentioned getting this product called Grease Lightning from the automotive department. I tried it and it worked great!
After all of the work lately, I decided to really give it a rest and I finally had a nine hour sleep last night. Now to clean house and start the rat race all over again. lol
