NYE 2012 (73" x 87")
Yup. I put the binding on tonight (no new picture). The binding is the same green that shows up throughout the quilt. And although Candace shared some wonderful name suggestions, I think it'll simply remain as NYE 2012.
So, it has been folded and added to my stash bag of finished quilts. (OH! You can see the binding in this picture!)
At the same time, I unfolded and refolded a few quilts that have been not-so-patiently waiting on my QOV pile. They will eventually make their way to you, Alycia!!!
And then....... wanting to stay on a motivational movement, I loaded Scrappy Picnic and finished off one bobbin's worth of quilting. I am keeping the pantographs put away, and am trying a free-motion "circuit" pattern. (Yes Angela---I loaded this BEFORE I read your email response to my 'quilting competition' comment.) :D
This post is taking a bit longer than usual to type up because we have the 10 o'clock news on in the background. The flooding damage in Duluth is the lead story. (We are the blue dot in the picture above....Duluth is about 80 miles due-north, right at the western tip of Lake Superior.)
Here is one article of many that has been written throughout the day about the damage. A boy amazingly survives a mile-long culvert 'trip,' a dozen animals perish from the Duluth Zoo....the stories continue to evolve.
The power of mother nature! No matter where you live, there's always the potential for some type of natural disaster. The good news........ the next 5-day extended forecast shows VERY LITTLE rain. Time to wring out everything and take a breather.
