Today is Christmas at Grandma's house and early birthday celebration for Papa Andy who was born on the 25th. I believe he will be 86 this year.
She is like a kid at Christmas..... her favorite holiday. We will head over and eat, play games and sing Happy Birthday for the afternoon. The good news... I don't have to cook dinner (or lunch) and if anyone is hungry..... it is their own fault! I think she forgets it is just 6 people, not 60!
Looking at the RSC Blogs of people who have actually finished off some quilts makes me realize I have been terrible this year at finishing anything! Maybe tomorrow will be designated as a day to sandwich and finish off the 16 patch top I put together last week! I need to decide if I piece something with flannel or just cotton for the backing. The quilt is 40x40... just big enough that a bolt wide is just not quite big enough for a backing....
Off to shower... and remind someone that the guinea pig cages need cleaning before we leave for Grandma's.
If you are quite that at home, you just MIGHT be able to eek out the backing in one width of fabric. I done it when quilting on my domestic machine! Here's hoping that you find time to quilt tomorrow.
I always thought it must be kind of rotten to be born on Xmas - people are celebrating the holidays and sometimes do not make a fuss over the birthday as well - it sounds like you all don't forget so that is nice. Have a great day at grandma's house!
Love your rainbow 16-patch!
