My computer has been acting so silly that I couldn’t stand to use it for more than just a few minutes. This afternoon I deleted all of my history and temp files and rebooted, and now it is working like new! Wish I had done it a week ago.
I have been quilting and sewing. Here’s the throw I made from men’s shirts.
I used flannel for the backing so it is nice and soft and warm. Just right for a chilly evening.
Continuing with my upcycling theme, I made this cute little bag from the back pockets from a pair of linen pants. The buttons and trim are vintage. And I made it by hand!
I have some of the squares from the throw that I didn’t use, so I put a few of them together to make this set of mug rugs. I pieced the squares by machine, but I quilted them by hand!
I’m working on courthouse steps blocks now. I’ve never done a courthouse step block before, and it took me longer to get my head wrapped around it than it should have, but I’m catching on! I need to add one more row to three squares to have a set of five squares. Then I will have to decide it I what I want to do with them. I’ll play around with them tomorrow. Right now I’m thinking about a table runner or a baby quilt.
I’m going to have to do some more work on my computer tomorrow, too. I need to get my records up to date. I’m about two weeks behind already!
