Finally finished! All I need to do now is wash it. I used the Theremore batting to quilt it and it is very drapey and feels great. The entire time I was quilting I was thinking the Theremore was Thinsulate. It is a thin poly batt. But when it was finished and I covered up with it, I felt like it wasn't too warm. That was when I suddenly realized "well duh!" Not Thinsulate...Theemore! Oh well. I need it to be kinda warm because I am taking it on retreat. We don't really turn the heat on in the sleeping room and last year it was rather nippy. I don't mind but hate to take forever for my feet to warm up once I get into bed. One way or another, I'll know next week whether it's warm enough or not.
Something I forgot to mention....A few posts ago I included a picture of my sewing room. Above the cutting table is a quilt of the Hebrew aleph-bet. That quilt was made by Amy at The Calico Cat. I used to teach Hebrew School and it hung in my classroom. It was a great learning tool. There is a mistake in the letters. One of the letters is out of order. I told my students there was a mistake and whoever could find it would get a million brownie points! (brownie points are imaginary. They understood that but took on the challenge anyway.) Well, one child figured it out. I swore her to secrecy but she was able to tell the other kids that she solved the problem. It became a school wide mystery! During break the kids would congregate in my room and try to figure out what the problem was. (Hey! It took me a minute to figure it out too!) At the end, only a few kids solved the problem. But I love the wall hanging and when I stopped teaching, I had to hang it somewhere in my home. So it now has a position of honor, in my sewing room!
Has anyone else noticed that the their posts didn't begin a new "folder" in Jan.? And that the sidebar has the 2006 posts labeled as 2005?????
