OR…..When something all wrong turns out exactly right! Sometimes projects are wrong from the get-go. This was one of those projects. It’s purely my own fault. I kept telling myself to just unpick the zipper and start over, but, I didn’t. I kept going… I started out making this zippered case for[Read more]
Seriously, this is the last one…for a while.
Last week was my birthday and I decided to take the day off work. Two friends had babies that week and I was already behind on their quilts. It would be a good time to get them done. But, I decided to do something for me. I was making the[Read more]
