RRCB is done, completely done and on the guest bed. I want to make some pillow shams, but that wasn't on the agenda for this weekend. I think an off white bed skirt would be better as well.
After I finished RRCB and she just came out of the drier I was all cuddled up with her watching a movie with my husband. I was beaming with pride when I felt something poking me, and I mean really poking me, like sharp, like a pin. And wouldn't you know it, I sewed a pin in the quilt!! And where was they pin?? Yep, the HSTs!! I don't know why but it was a pin that parallel to the seam rather than perpendicular and I must have ironed the fabric right over it. All that quilting and I never saw it. After about 20 minutes and the help of my trusty point on the seam ripper I was able to wiggle it out between two stitches. I'm so glad I found it rather than a guest!! And I'm so happy I was able to get the pin out with out ripping out any seams. Those silk pins are really sharp! Someone left a comment saying that's why you sleep with a quilt before it gets used by others to make sure they have sweet dreams and to get all the pins out.
So it was a very bright weekend. Amanda is working like a charm. I have the patterns ready to go as well, I'll be sending out email to those that said they would like some. I've got the list. I also have a few books that I'm ready to part with and hoping they can find a good home as well.
