In honor of my Year of Getting It Done, I put the outer border on my Steam Punk quilt. This special quilt called for a border, but a subtle one. I think the off white print fits the bill, allowing the focus to be on those glorious spinning propeller blocks. This will go out for quilting soon, but when it returns I believe I will have to hang on to it for myself. I had too much fun making it to let it go.
I am hobbling around the house with a sore back and legs after four days of caring for Eva last week, two of which involved spending the day at our county fair. All day. Both Thursday and Friday. In the kiddie carnival area. Let's observe a moment of silence while you feel sorry for me...
But who could resist that girl?
The fair is a very big deal in our small community, with many local 4H kids showing animals they spent the last nine to twelve month raising. It is a fun event, but as I said, exhausting for grandparents who have to tear up and down the hilly area following their charges over the acres of fairgrounds. It's all over now, for another year. Thank goodness.
Hope you are all having a grand week.
