Earlier in the week, I was guilted into getting the Boutique quilt finished!
I still don't really like it. The colours are all a bit 'wrong' to my eye, although I like the biggest, boldest, tricked-me-into-buying-the-layer cake top print, the rest just feel too wishy-washy! Apologies to any Boutique-lovers, this is just not the one for me.
I found an unused burgundy fleece during my antique shop, fez-buying spree, and with some navy binding decided to get it finished. Fluff, air pollution and then sitting in tropical temperatures under a blanket in a bikini, (to the amusement, no doubt, of the gliders circling overhead!) I finally got it bound and finished.
It doesn't look half so bad in the photos!
To Do List entry:
Finish the Boutique quilt, even though I don't like it, then let the kids have it for the garden and not get moody when it gets dirty by keeping in mind that I don't like it!! Tick.
Now that's done, I've got many more things I'd really love to get on with; happy days.
