Pear Tote, Not For Toting Pears
I have until Friday to finish the quilt that I am working on for my daughter's school. So that means I need to a) pin the quilt sandwich together b)learn how to quilt c)do some quilting d)learn how to do mitered corners d)bind the quilt f)f'ed is what I am if I don't do this in 2 days.
So keeping these goals in mind, today I finished knitting a pair of socks, sewed triangles for a fabric banner, and made a tote bag. Because what better way to finish a quilt than do nothing on it?!?
Oh, and I took a trip to the Bernina store (while trying not to fall under the lure of the pretty machines!), where I replaced a damaged cord for the machine I borrowed for the quilting. Because today I managed to take two sewing machines out of commission in less than two hours. All in a day's work!
