A plan for this UFO
Everytime I take this UFO out, I think - um, what was I thinking? Other than the fact that it is bright and in primary colors - did I have a plan? Well guess what? I have a plan for this top now - or at least I think I do!
Linda J. over at catsnqlts is sending me some great TRAIN blocks for Little Boy! So, I am thinking of adding a TRAIN border all around this top. And, then I can add his name going down the big empty blocks diagonally. And in the other big empty blocks I can something like 1, 2, 3 and maybe some simple applique shapes. So, I am going to get busy making some more train blocks - it is sort-ov like a new project, but I am using a UFO as the base - got to love that!
On my blog, I have changed it to show just 2 posts - for all my previous posts you have to click on the title or go into the archives. Because I am high-speed wireless internet a huge 1st page is no problem - but for anyone on dial-up, I think this will make visiting my page a little speedier. It's worth a try - how many of you are on dial-up anyway? If everyone is high-speed I can switch it back to showing lots of stuff all at once or maybe 3 posts at a time? Anyone with dial-up - feel free to clue me in because I just don't know!
And, I've added a weather pixie to my sidebar - isn't she cute! Except she isn't wearing a jacket - I still am - so obviously we have a difference of opinion on what to wear on a cold, rainy day. In her defense though - her weather guage is located some distance from me, which is probably a warmer place, so just add another layer of clothes onto my pixie for a more accurate Starfishy weather forecast! Which - you might notice for today - is RAIN. More rain. We have had rain, rain, rain and more rain! So, I haven't gone on my trip yet because who wants to go on vacation in the rain?
One good thing about being stuck inside all day though - I called Keepsake Quilting (finally!) about that binding gizmo and they said - no problem for me to return it because I have the receipt!!! AND, I bought this last summer (just got around to testing it out), so I thought that was very generous. I can return it for an even exchange of merchandise so I have been looking off and on at their on-line catalog. Thank goodness DH told me to rescue the thing from the rubbish and call about a refund - and that I could actually find a receipt from last summer! Keepsake was so super nice about the whole thing you would think I was ordering something, not returning it! Yippee!
Thank you for all the nice comments about my scrappy blue quilt/Little Helper!
