If you haven't read my blog before, no the monster isn't a Halloween monster. I had a ivory, pink and green monster in my living room for 18 months. Yep, that is a looooong time. My second post when I entered the blogging world was about the Monster. You can read about it here if you wish. I won't go into great detail again on this post. In a nut shell, it is a reproduction of a Marie Webster quilt. The era is 1930's. I hand appliqued it, and am in the process of hand quilting it.
This is what my living room looks like now!!! Yippee! I have to admit that I did a little happy dance when I was able to take the quilt out of the frame last Friday night at 12:30 a.m. I even yelled Yippee a couple of times. Not only was I excited that the Monster was out of the living room but that my Hubby was coming home after a two week business trip the next day. Getting the Monster out of the living room before he came home had been a goal of mine. I thought that it would make a perfect surprise welcome home present for him, and it was! He was not only happy to be home, but to be able to sit down on the couch was an added bonus. I had quilted my "fingers to the bone" to get the quilt out of the frame and it paid off. Now I just have to finish up some of the cross hatching lines at the edge and then quilt around the applique motifs. This can be done in front of the television, not in the middle of the living room. Can I say it again? Yippee!!
I will be posting soon about the goodies that hubby brought home for me and the neat giveaway prize that I received in the mail recently. So much fun!
