I don't normally work on Thursday's, but today I made an exception. Missing staff on Photo Day leaves an incomplete picture of the school, in years to come when people are looking back. I went in, in time for the staff photo and then hung around for the whole school shot and the family photo. I had ordered a family photo and the receptionist said "You have to be in it too....". I'd not thought of it really. But in a school where 1/3 of the staff are also current parents it seems to be the thing to do. So I took the opportunity and jumped in with the kids. I'm rather pleased with the results (gotta love high tech photographers that hook straight up to a computer screen!).
Before all that excitement though, I nearly got my first border on my quilt. The four borders are pieced, as of last night. I just need to sew them on. I got part way through one side and the bobbin cotton ran out, darn it. Then I will need to make a firm decision ~ hand quilt or professional quilter. I get both sides....oh of course you'll send it off to get quilted, and, you couldn't possibly send it off to someone else cos then it wouldn't be your work. My control-freak nature tends to agree with the latter. What I am thinking, though, is that I could get a professional quilter to baste the layers together so I could then quilt away at my leisure without worrying about the quilt layers moving. That would be $40-$50 well spent, I think. I'll post a picture once I'm done with the borders.
