another week has flown by!
our daughter asked her dad to put this Ikea chest together for her
what she got was not only a chest put together, but one with a nice stain, several coats of sealer and a wax job on top
he built these two "park benches" for me so I can display my doll and bear collection on the ledge in our living room
I hope to get those installed in the next couple of days
the beading is coming along on this -- stitching down bugles in concentric circles is pretty time consuming, but this piece does not have a time deadline, and that stitching has a sort of meditating quality that is good at the end of a long day
there is still one thing I'm going to do to this -- ink the edge so the white batting doesn't make that white halo around the edges
but to do that quilting I needed a specific color and type of thread
which I found at the quilt show that was held right here in my home town on Friday
of course I also did a bit of shopping for another project that I'm working on (and can't show you pictures of yet!)
I volunteered to take one of my pieces to be experimented with
what an amazing impact hanging this piece that way had -- WOW!
made me think about doing something like this for a future piece too
