My sewing yesterday morning basically set the tone for my sewing last night. I managed to redo the seams on the binding, but then it took me an hour to finish off the binding. I don't know what I was thinking, but I kept sewing the beginning and ending of the binding together in a 90 degree angle. Then when I finally got the angle right, I kept making it too big or too small. I think I literally spent an hour working on it. Oh, and both my bobbin and my spool ran out on separate attempts. But, the good news is that I finally got it finished and machine-sewed the binding down.
But more was to come...
I went to print the labels and realized I only had about 30 minutes on my laptop. And that my power cable was sitting on my desk. At work :-(. So I went to print the labels. First I had to change my black ink because it was out. So I did, but did not do so correctly, because when I went to print the labels, only the colored part of the name printed. Nothing in black printed! By then my laptop died. I fiddled some more with the printer and tried reinstalling the cartridge, but I won't know until later when I'm back home and ready to print again with a powered laptop if it's correct now.
Of course I couldn't find my quilt label pen anywhere, so I couldn't hand write the info on the label. I'll get one this afternoon to have on hand.
I did get photos of the quilt this morning, but since I'm at work I don't have a card reader. I'll upload the photos this evening. I also finished a UFO top. It's ready for basting. I'll post a picture of that as well.
I'll use this for a baby boy at church who is due in July. We have 2 more boys coming up in October plus a "surprise us" that month as well. We also just had a baby girl come a few weeks ago and the ladies are having a shower this month for her. So that's four quilts I want to do over the next several weeks before school starts back up.
