Before I get to my list, I have to tell you about my most triumphant finish of the week. On Saturday evening, we were outside, and my neighbor ran over with his daughter's prom dress in his arms. The zipper broke, and they needed my help. And, oh by the way, her date was due to arrive in five minutes. The dress had two layers--a satin gown with a chiffon overlay. Or something like that. I don't really know, because I know nothing about sewing clothes! We decided the best plan was to sew the zipper closed--she *thought* she would still be able to get her dress over her head. So I made like a Project Runway contestant in the work room, with Tim Gunn urging me to make it work! Of course, my sewing machine needle broke, my bobbin thread got jammed, and I sweat profusely, but I finished it before the date arrived, and it held up all night. I got a text the next day saying I'd saved the prom! I'm still patting myself on the back.
Okay, on to my mortal feats of the week.
I finished up this orange/navy chevron quilt top this week using AmandaJean's tutorial. It's going to be a graduation quilt for my neighbor. (Yes, the same neighbor with the prom dress. I'm the best neighbor ever.)
