I've been working on the log cabin quilt. I was going to wait until I finished it to share it; but I took a picture of the fabrics I'm using, earlier in the cutting stage, and thought I would share them with you. I think it is going to turn out pretty.
The log cabin has a chain running through it. The chain is done with the red fabric.
The larger piece, shown at the bottom of the picture, is the backing.
I plan to use the "quilt as you go" method. That way, when I'm finished sewing the blocks together, all I will have to do is bind it and label it.
The interview I had on Tuesday went well ~ just waiting on the result. I will know, by next Friday, if I am hired or not.
I'll consider it a good thing either way.
It will be good if I get the job, but if I don't, I will consider it practice for the next interview; since it had been several years from the last time I interviewed for a job. :)
Yesterday, I spent most of the day with my parents. We went to a new antique & flea market shop, for me anyway, and I found an oil lamp I like. It is not antique or vintage but it is made in the USA and I like the style. Plus, it only cost $7. :)
Today, I tried something new.
I have several knit patterns for dish cloths, afghans and such but am not a knitter. I have tried knitting with needles in the past with no success.
However, I can crochet.
I found the Knook! Knitting with a crochet hook. Go figure.
So, I followed the beginner instructions, practiced a little bit and then took the leap.
Here is the beginning of an eternity scarf I am knitting.
I think I'm caught up now, on what's been going on in my world.
Until next time,
God bless and keep you,
