The pink and green quilt is finally complete. A few days ago I wanted so badly to start a new project (a couple of them, actually), but I knew I had to finish this now or it may never get done.
After completing the top I had to iron it, cut off the points, and it took forever to get it on the quilting machine and quilted. All I did was stippling; I wanted it to be really crinkly, and it's huge!
(before shrinking: 92 x 113inches).
This is what we had before, it's actually one I made about 10 years ago and is just tied. It has polyester batting too, and is so comfy and warm. It was all out of scraps, I'm trying to be a little more creative with my scrap usage lately. I do still love it, though.
When I finished it last night, my arms were aching. So nice to sleep under it!
While I was finishing, Tyler took the piano apart to clean and repair it. I was not aware that he knew how to do this sort of thing, but it appears as though his first try is working out.
It seems to be a good piano, though I've never heard that name before.
And considering the age.
I must say it was a little unsettling to come into the living room and find this.
He cleaned each key with rubbing alcohol.
There are some matching little boys here today.
And they seem to be happy about it!
Hamming it up for the camera.
Could mean trouble in a few years! =)
And there's soon to be a wonderful aroma in the house.
Has anyone tried making the bread? I forgot to mention that when you form the loaves it is very sticky dough, and a mound of flour is helpful to work in. Or you can spray your hands with cooking spray to keep it from sticking to you.
