Another Baby Quilt

Yes, you read that correctly. I'm working on another baby quilt. This one will have the entire alphabet embroidered out on it. I just love the greenish-teal on the white. The white fabric from my neighbors scrap/leftover pile. It's about 1/2 a yard of apparel fabric. It feels rather like minki, though I very seriously hope I wont have that much trouble with it.

In spite choosing nearly a full spool of polyneon to embroider these 5.5" letters with I'm still running quite row. With 10 letters left to go I am certain I will need another spool. Madeira thread isn't available locally so that will be a post haste order going out hopefully this weekend. At least the company I like to order from it has my color (1888) available in cones as well as the spools. I don't want to have a run like this again. It's crazy how fast those little spools can go. Not to mention going faster as it gets closer to the center. But you already knew that didn't you?

My pain levels have been quite high even waking me up last night out of a blissful sleep. I suppose it must be the stress of all that has been happening lately. At first I was delighted to learn a chipper rental would only be $140, but then there are fees, rental insurance in case it it stolen from your property, deposit, etc. It all adds up very quickly. So I'm not certain how that will work out.

I hope you all are enjoying spring and living stress free, why not take a minute and tell me about it? The good, the bad? It's always nice to know someone is listening.

I'm sorry that you are living in pain Liz. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Things are going good here currently (and I don't get to say that often). I spent the day scrapbooking and sitting outside to get a tan while the kids played in the kiddie pool. (Okay I cheated a bit and added some self tanner. LOL)
