I don't have a lot to share today because I am on a mission to get the double wedding ring quilted this week. I want to have 2 finished for March and this is my best bet for #2.
I'll get a better photo of the DWR by Wednesday but here's a shot of the back. I decided on some ruler work for the center and I like the texture from the back. It's moving along at a good pace and I have 8 of 20 rings done so far.
In other news, Chris indulged me Saturday to do a little house decorating.
I've been wanting to put something in this green void at the front of the house. While in Lancaster I got to meet the owners of Classic Metal Company. They make these great powder-coated metal barn quilt. This small Sister's Choice block in white was perfect for our house. Of course it just highlighted that we need to powerwash and do some painting.
I have a large one of these framed with hand dyed fabric in the guest house. I framed 3 of them for my Mom too. There's even a tutorial for how I frame them. We love these metal quilts! They had all kinds of new products like ruler holders, napkin holders and "A Quilter Lives Here" signs.
Mom made the quilt on that bed.....because I know someone will ask.
I don't talk about it much but I do try to exercise every day. I do a lot of yoga, PT type exercises for my right hip and knee and time on a recumbent bike. My exercise for the next couple of weeks is going to be raking gravel back into the driveway. A lot of it wound up in the grass when Chris had to shovel snow. It needs to be back in the driveway before the lawn guy comes and I thought it might be a good change of pace for my exercise routine. I can also do it a little at a time and it is GREAT exercise. I did about an hour and half this morning and can already tell that I've used some often-neglected muscles.
Tomorrow morning you might be able to hear me groaning as I get out of bed.
