I've been getting itchy at bedtime & watching the TV commercial on dust mites makes me scratch more with just the thought of dust mites in my bed. I know it's because of the two cats & Boris' hair is like thin pine needles. So I looked into the dyson DC 61 animal handheld vacuum, wow they're expensive!
Then I had another thought, I've had Airmiles for decades & haven't used any points for years... I wonder - well it so happened that Airmiles had one & I had enough points! Bonus, it was ordered & came to me in less than a week.
I really like the three attachments, love it for the ease of the 20 minutes operating time & it's cordless, I've recharged it five times & emptied it four times. It's become my favourite working tool in every room of the house.
I used a 45 degree angle for my grind lines, once you have the one marked just follow from there. I start in the middle then stitch the lines above then stitch the lines below & press the quilt out again to remove any wrinkles. I also use fusible batting to do this type of quilting, no pins needed!
Remember the wall quilt - Over The River?...
I've taken all the buttons off & washed the blanket till I know what I can selvage from the top as it's 100% wool, maybe a mini patchwork for his basket?
Painting & Renewing
My bathroom looks fresh with these pieces! Next week maybe I'll paint the bathroom. It's a very small room but boy can it hold a lot of stuff when you start pulling everything out!!
To challenge myself with this wall hanging I was using blue/white, it's to go to the cottage to hang in the kitchen with the blue & white-dishes.
I added a glass button in the center as the focal point to finish off this mug rug that will sit on the table.
Spring is coming & the Escuminac, Baie-Ste-Anne, Hardwicke Garden Club is going to have their first meeting on March 4th, the first Wednesday of every month till October. I wish I was there as I'm the Vice President & will have to hear everything after the meeting. :(
Heather is the founder of this club & has really brought it to life. She's the creator of the website too!
So if your in our northern New Brunswick area, please join in & attend the monthly meetings at the Baie-Sainte- Anne Firehall - first meeting March 3rd!
Great job Heather! Good luck, wishing I could be there & thinking of you often! :)
