Murphy's Law: If something can go wrong, it will.

Not only did I lack enough fabric to complete the binding on Debbie's quilt, the local quilt shop where I purchased it just last Friday was sold out.

I was able to find it on the Internet, and hope the dye lots will match. Probably close enough for this scrappy quilt! So that quilt will not be finished this week.

I have the piano/guitar quilt ready to pin on the machine, so wish me luck!

Tonight we head to the mountains to visit our cabin for the first time in a month. Perfect- the temps and humidity are rising here in the North Carolina Piedmont! We may indulge in a little creek-floating with an adult beverage in the cup-holder! We are taking a nice big picture of a mountain scene up with us to hang in our little one-room cabin. We have been very slow to put any nails in our lovely wood walls, and only have one other piece on the wall.

Here is another blog referral for today: an unbelievable Bernina sewing machine that has been "blinged" by art quilter Laura Cater-Woods. I had seen photos of a long-arm machine that was decorated and "quilted" by Nichole Webb. Apparently, Laura's is a new machine that is being offered in a fundraiser. Check it out!
