Be Warned...

You might see pigs flying any day now. Why, you ask? Well, this quilt right here...



I made it! I mean to say, I finished it! Amazing. I'm not known to finish projects like this. Thankfully, Master gave me enough pushes to keep going -even made me work on it a few nights instead of letting me cuddle with him on the couch-, without his help it would still be in pieces. 

Don't look too close though, it has enough flaws to drive one mad. At least it works. It even made it though the washer and dryer without disintegrating, which is another reason you might see a flying pig.

Just giving you the heads up.

Okay, maybe I just wanted to brag.

  2. WHOOOOHOOOOO that's amazing!

    and it's supposed to have flaws - traditionally, flaws were put in (like in shetland shawl knitting) because it was sacrilegious to try and attain perfection.

    besides, if if it made it through the washing machine and dryer it's pretty damn perfect anyway!

    1. mc kitten, that's exactly why I put those flaws there! ;) I knew I could find a reason lol

      I was so worried it wouldn't make it out of the drier, but I had to put it in, in order to get that effect on the back.

    1. DF, my sewing machine does embroidery, would that count? :) My lines are far from straight but they did the job.

      Thank you!
