For some reason which escapes me now, I made two of these tablerunners -- this one and another that had a blue with a little gold in it for the main fabric. It was truly ugly -- well it was pretty fabric, but it didn't belong with these sunflowers. So, it and this one, became ufo's because I didn't like them enough to finish them. Fast forward to this week. I pulled the other tablerunner out and decided to just quilt it and add it to the collection of ugly quilts. While looking for a backing, I found a fabric that was bought more recently (in the last year or so). So, I took the blue one apart, redesigned it, saving only the big sunflowers and just finished sewing the binding down. Here's the lemonade made from a lemon:
And that makes two finished ufo's for the month of May!
I did buy some fabric this month -- mostly backgrounds and a border fabric for the Tulips All Around, but also a couple of other blues that were in the running for borders, but lost out and are now added to stash.
1. Briana slipped on the monkey bars while at her mother's for the weekend, and now has 5 stitches in her chin/lip and two loose teeth. I'm grateful it wasn't any worse and she will get the stitches out on Friday.
2. Also grateful that she cried for her Daddy and he, of course, drove all the way to Milwaukee to be at the hospital with her and brought her home.
3. Managed to get "most" of the weeding done before the heat and humidity sent me inside.
4. Rain. And it cooled off enough that tomorrow I can finish the last flower bed (and start over again).
5. Sunflowers and quilts.
