But putting on the facing and the label? Ugh.
I don't know why I dislike it so much. I don't hate cutting strips (unless I know they are for the facing). I don't hate sewing things on the sewing machine (unless it is sewing the facing to the quilt). I don't hate handwork (unless it it sewing the facing). And creating and attaching a label is quick and easy. Hmmmm. I guess it's all in my head.
Whatever the reason, I always have a pile of quilts that are quilted but need the finishing work. And one of the quilts in the pile has been entered in the Dallas Quilt Show. Whoops! That show is next week. So I have been working at what I hate, and hating pretty much every minute of it, decreasing the pile of unfinished pieces.
It's a good time to work on facings. DFW has been snowed under! It doesn't take much winter weather to bring things to a halt in the Metroplex, and for the last week we've been dealing with ice and snow. Last week we had an ice storm followed by a snow storm. Big fluffy flakes and about 2 inches of snow. Life in North Texas screeched to a halt.
This morning we awoke to nearly 4 inches of snow. My intrepid husband marched out first thing this morning to clear the car and the driveway. Unfortunately, we don't own a snow shovel, so he went out to battle the snow with a broom:
The snow is beautiful, but the sun is shining for the first time in a week. It won't last long.
I guess it's a good morning to finish my finishing work.
