perfecting neuroticism since 1984

My kinda-roommate asked me to make a patch-work tablecloth for our Halloween party, and I managed to design it and make it in a week.  I used a burgundy twin topsheet and an old orange loosely-woven tablecloth I found from a thrift store as fabric.  The design was pretty simple, and I managed to match the size of the table exactly.  Cheesy









The last two are me trying to press and hem it while my kitten was sitting on the other end.  Cats are always trying to help, aren't they?

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

I think I have become addicted to quilting.

That is a nice looking tablecloth. I really like the orange and burgundy combination. I am impressed that you were able to design it and make it within a week; it would have taken me forever!

Normally it would have taken me forever too, but I had a deadline.  I didn't say I was a happy camper the whole time!  I was definitely grumpy until if was finished a couple hours before the party.

Very pretty!!  I have a cat who likes to "help" too, so I can sympathize with you there.

Sweet!  I can never get my intersections to match up when I do patchwork.

That's what I was thinking!  It looks very Renaissance, and we could probably use that as a theme sometime for something!
