A snowy, sewy day.

Today was stormy with lots of snow so I stayed home from work and sewed all day. Stayed in my jammies all day!

I really needed to get my "Easy Street" to flimsy stage.   I just finished sewing the borders on after spending the entire day working on it. I followed Bonnie's instructions exactly as she stated and everything went very smoothly.  I am very pleased with the results and now I need to get it quilted.  It's a large quilt so quilting it on my home machine will be tricky but I have a plan.
Sorry I couldnt get a full-on photo, because of lack of room so I will have to work on getting a better shot some other time.  But you can get the idea of how it looks.  I decided at the very last moment to change the inner border to pink from the turquoise that I previously decided on.  I like the pink much better. 


My daughter, my first-born, turned 34 the other day so I made her a coin purse.  The frame I used is 3" so it is small and just the cutest.  She loves it. 


I am linking up with The Needle and Thread Network  so stop by and check out what is going on this week.

  7. I love your Easy Street! I really wanted to do the mystery this year, but I told myself I had to finish my UFOs first. The pink is a great touch.
