I haven't been very motivated yet this week. This is my long work week and it's hard to do anything. So, normally I just do quick things. Things that will add to my ever growing UFO (unfinished object) pile. This is no exception. I bought this quilt awhile ago at the thrift store for a really good price. I don't remember how much just a couple bucks I'm sure, but if it wasn't a good deal I wouldn't buy it. lol.
This is the before: I LOVED that it was hand quilted but, I have always hated the finished edge since I got it because it didn't look or feel right. These pics were taken with my cell phone because I took it to work with me to do. Anyway I could never tell if it was suppose to be a binding or border. I just knew it was puffy and looked weird.
So I decided to take a peek. I started to rip out the seams. What the heck???? Who does this???
Of course now I have to take it all off. Again who finishes a quilt like this!?!?!?! Really a rolled up piece of batting.
I had to unroll it to see of course.
So now all I have left is the center hand quilted part. I'm still debating if I should use the red I tore off to make binding, or if I should go with a different color. I can't add a border at this point so into the UFO pile it goes. lol. I'll get to it someday.
I also did a little bit more crafting.
You all know I'm not a heart kind of girl, but I made these out of thrift store little girl velour dresses. I saw on Pinterest (which by the way I'm addicted to lol) someone made strawberries out of velvet. So, I LOVED the idea and ran straight to the thrift store in search of velvet and came up short. I thought maybe this would work instead.
The red pillow was already made and laying in my UFO pile, so I decided to make something.
I got a few other things at the thrift store...
I LOVE geraniums! There is a full pot, but you can't see it since my desk top sinks down in.
Some Spring flowers...
A basket to use in my craft room for my strips of fabric.
I got a few other odds and ends, but nothing worth showing lol.
I have a day off today, so I will go out to the garage and find something wood to paint for my tutorial. So, keep checking back this weekend for a tutorial. Have a great day :-)
