LIMEADE SODA POP!
|Elliecat's Nemesis, little harvey-no-balls in on the act|
Yes, mum fixed it. I can hear her sighing and rolling her eyes from here, she doesn't like me telling you when she's done stuff. Tough. Mum, quite rightly, thought I was being far too picky and defeatist with all the falling off leaves and stuff, and when I was suggesting re-quilting the entire thing, yet totally dreading the prospect, mum took it off me and just stitched down the worst offenders. She likes to help, she's pretty good like that! Then we washed it.... Oh the nerves!!! Heart in mouth stuff taking it out of the machine I can tell you. Don't know who was more worried; me, that half the bubbles would be hanging off, or mum, that the bright orange binding or shocking pink squares might have bled all over the white....
Massive relief, we were both worrying about nothing. No colour run, no hanging off bubbles. Okay so there were a few slightly more dodgy lookin ones, but mum stitched those down before I could over think it. I did help tie and sew in all the thread ends.....
Definitely a joint effort this one. I'd even go so far as to say that it would not be done at all had it not been done by us together. Honestly, that just makes me love it even more.
Fabulous!! wonderful job mum ;) So glad it survives! It's really pretty and makes me want to start my soda pop quilt but it's in the queue!ReplyDelete
