I completed SITP. Am I happy with it? Not really. I like the final look but I don't like the fact that many of my corners are cut off and that some of my blocks are poochy. I even washed it after I quilted it and guess what, it doesn't look any better to me. I most likely will make anther one day but have to many other projects in the fire right now.
Here is my completed Old Tobacco Road. I finally got it all frogged the borders fixed and re-quilted. I like how this came out. It is larger than I expected. It does cover my queen size bed. It covers over the sides, a bit shorter than I like but certainly could be used on a queen in a pinch. It definitely will work well on a double. Does anyone even have a double bed anymore?
I did not see my grandson this week-end. We stayed home and did some work around the house and gave the new family a break from us. As my daughter would say, "My mom staying home to do housework is code talk for my mom staying home and sewing." Well, I have to admit she is partially right. Saturday is another good football day so we will go over and watch with them. USC will play OR Ducks. Well we are USC fans and SIL is a Duck fan so it will be fun. I promise I will be good and not cheer to hard. I will say the Trojans will have to play better than they did with the Beavers. What a dud of a game for us USC fans, it was as if the Trojans did not even want to play so they didn't. Hopefully they will be fired up after that loss and want to play hard and win the game. Enough football talk. I have to get ready for work. Have a good day. Dot
