Update On Marie Quilt

I haven't felt great today.  My husband took vacations days yesterday and today and asked this morning if I would like to go junkin' at the antique mall.  He thought it would take my mind off of how I feel.  What a sweetie-pie!

I of course, could not say no to junkin'!  I found a couple of nice things to add to my stash:

Antique Mall Treasures

A vintage Tatting booklet, an old book of music, some vintage millinery flowers and a small package of old crocheted lace.

We stopped at Wendy's for a little tiny cheeseburger and then came home.  I put my Corned Beef in the Nesco (I don't cook!  Really I don't!) and now it's ready for some salad for tonight and tomorrow night.

While that was cooking, I played some more with my Marie Antoinette Mixed Media Art Quilt:

I added some do-dads to it and put the back on.  Traditionally, I would have put a "proper" binding on it but this is an art quilt so I cut the back larger than I needed, folded it over the top and topped stitched it down.  I'm quite pleased with it!

It isn't done yet though.  I added some glitter to the flowers and it's drying now.  I have a few more embellishments for it which I'll add tomorrow and hopefully, I can get it on the hanger.  I still have to paint that so we'll see.

Marie is looking better and better. You have a sweet husband to take you junking...he obviously knows exactly what you need to make you feel better. Good man!
