I finally found some time to work on the Carpenter's Star. I don't even know what I have been doing, but I've been busy.(grin) Also we have had lots of storms. I don't use my machine while it is storming. I would cry if lightning struck my baby. LOL It has been way to wet to work in the garden, but I did get down to it yesterday. I bought cages for my eight tomato plants. I have them on now. Good thing I didn't wait any longer, cause they are getting big. My zucchini is up, so I dusted it again. Also pulled a few morning glories. I hate those vines. Supposed to be more rain coming through tonight. I am so glad I weeded the whole garden when I did. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't be able to find it by now. LOL I'll try to take a picture the next time I am down there.
I put the first two borders on the Carpenter's Star today. The first border was just strips from the background fabric. I didn't like the pattern's idea for a second border, so I made my own. I cut bricks of the Star fabrics 3 1/2"X7" and sewed them end to end. I then used some of the background fabric to make cornerstones. I like it.
I was so excited yesterday when the Fed Ex man pulled into our driveway. Look what he brought me.
Walmart.com They cost me a little over $30. That also included tax and shipping. Not bad. Even Callie approves. LOL
Jenny's new blog. She is having a giveaway of a beautiful cloth flower broach that she makes. They are really lovely. So go on over and visit her blog. I know you will be as impressed as I am.
Well, it is about time to sit in front of the tv again. Everyone have a great evening. Thanks for visiting.
