I'e gotten some work done on the nautical sampler this week because I've been hiding downstairs with Pup while the oven is doing its burn off thing for several days in a row. Four times I've cranked it up and it still smells awful. I wouldn't eat anything out of it yet so it's getting annoying.
After about an hour the burn smell goes out the windows so I can get back upstairs but the toy tree is slow going. I did a little duck and a few more branches this week but that's it.
I had the binding sewn on the memory quilt but it looked awful so I took it off and trimmed off about a half an inch from the last white border. I had used some floppy material and it did not take well to the machine quilting so cutting it back made it play nicely on the edges. It was a pain but it was worth it to get rid of the ripples and the puckers.
Of course this is how I am spending most of my day. Can you believe we still haven't even got to the corner yet? Cutting the tile around the window was not a lot of fun-and we still have the other side of the window to do. Argh....
