A bit of randomness....

1.  I finally finished this a week or two ago...I really cannot remember how long.  But recently.  I kept thinking I would wait and post a photo of before and after washing, but I still haven't washed it yet.  It is to go on the back of Roger's chair and it approx 42 x 30, give or take an inch or two.

2.  I love to take my socks off at the end of the day and set my toes free!

3.  I broke down and got THIS tablet...I do really like it.  It is so convenient to sit on the porch with it.  The picture of the quilt above was taken with it.

4.  My oldest daughter wanted to make some lined valances for her house.  So we worked on them a couple weekends ago...the window is so wide that we had to match the print of the drapery fabric.  if you look close you can see the seam...but believe me in real life standing back from it 3 or 4 feet, it is very hard to see...


5.  I am leaving you with a video my nephew sent to me....



Linking to Willy Nilly Friday 5.....

The quilt is gorgeous Rose and I am so impressed with your invisible seam. I looked for it and I could not find.

The quilt is truly beautiful. I love the colors. If you did the quilting - congrats because it looks great. And, also applause on your sewing project. Looks perfect. I have one of those tablets. I don't use it for being on line too much but it's a great reader. Have a nice weekend.

What lovely work you do! I'm sure there's a bit of satisfaction knowing you did so well on the drapes. It's nice to have these random things to be happy about, especially letting your toes free!

Love the quilt. Clever girl. And lucky man who is having that on his chair! Oh, and I enjoyed that video. I tend to forget sometimes how much times have changed.

Gosh, Rose, what fabulous stitch-work! Your quilt is gorgeous - lovely design and perfectly executed. And your fabric matching on that valence seam is a text-book how-to-do-it example. You're very accomplished. I love the idea of having a porch where you can sit outside in the shade on a warm day. It sounds marvellous.
