Busy, Busy Today!!!
Today was a busy day..... brain wise that is.
The course that I teach is being restructured and I am to come up with a unit on Asia. Being a person that has to totally concentrate on what I am doing when it comes to school, I spent most of the day organizing my thoughts and getting a start on it.
As my reward, I started thinking about how I want to border my chunky churndash top that I made at retreat last weekend. Thankfully I have just enough of the red that I used in the hourglass blocks to make a one inch pieced border; then I'm going to put a one inch tan border. I wanted so badly to use something in my stash for the wider border but alas it shall not be. I found a really nice Civil War print of the rusty-red/tan flowers on dark brown at Hancocks of Paducah and just ordered three yards of it. I'll have enough for unpieced borders, the binding, and maybe part of the backing. I like to make scrappy backings for scrappy quilts... it helps to use up the stash.
And to top off a really great day, my hubby had put a crock-pot of chili on last night and it slow cooked nearly 24 hours. YUMMMMMMMMMMY!!!! I love it when I can go out and **POOF** supper is on the table. He's definitely a keeper.
