In Between

This is about what's going on in between quilting sessions with the Big Project. I now have six days to finish the BP! (Not loving all of it!)

Anyway, big surprise in the mail this week. A beautifully quilted postcard from blogger Jan in the UK! It was a welcome card to blogland! So nice of her, and so nicely done! I'm really so impressed with it, can't imagine doing this myself! Yea Jan!!! Thanks again!
My accomplishment for the week is a removal! My husband found a shirt he liked with a collar he didn't like. He likes button down collars or none at all. Gene Black showed on his blog how to remove a collar. We bought the shirt (a bargain, by the way) and I removed the collar. It was very easy and looks good! Happy ending! Thanks Gene!!!
Hoping that my next post is an ending of the BP!!!

Good job on the shirt! I had forgotten that Jan asked me for your address to send that to you. Her work is great on those postcards, isn't it???? I hope you get that darned BP done so it's off your mind soon.

The postcard is lovely. I may try some of that type quilting on a postcard. That way I don't mess up a quilt trying it.

The shirt looks great! Easy isn't it? It looks like you were careful and pulled out all the tiny threads after you ripped off the collar. I usually have some left as I am not a perfectionist! Ha ha.

Great postcard.
Your collar removal worked perfectly. I will have to remember that.
Good luck with the big project.
