The Kaleidescope quilt top is finished:
I managed to get it completed before the hubby and I headed out Thurs. morning. I really like the triple color border. The most I’ve ever mitered before was 2 colors and those were each done individually. I sewed the three stripes first then attached them together. I like the miters and it’s easier than doing each border separate!
Sister-in-law wasn’t kidding about a mess in the house she purchased. I’m not a neat freak, but I keep a relatively respectable house…. and how a person chooses to live is their business…. but I have never seen so much dirt and pet hair all in one place –ever! The pet hair was so embedded in the carpet, I couldn’t get it to vacume out. I shampooed the carpet and I truly got over a 3 gallon bucket full of pet hair that I had to pull off the brushes of the shampooer….. Anyway>>>>> 4 days of 10-12 hour days cleaning, scrubbing etc…. I’m tired and sore and sure could use a manicure…. Home for a couple weeks, then we go back to paint, lay tile, wash light fixtures and windows and who knows what else. DH spent the 4 days working cleaning animal poop and weeds out of the yard and doing home exterior repair. We’re both glad, though, that we’re able to help his sister.
Katie who hopes I haven’t offended anyone with my critical assessment of someone else’s house keeping.
