Some days I feel busier than I did when the kids were little! Must be that I'm slowing down? No, that can't be it.
I made progress on my stitchery from Gail Pan by adding the borders that were listed on the pattern. Ready for March now. These are fun and fast to do.
Here's another arm chair sewing caddy from Helen's Hugs And Kisses blog pattern. I love how this makes up. This one I donated to my guild for their "Needful Things" table at our upcoming quilt show in March. If you will be mid-Michigan the end of March, you can get all of the details for our quilt show by clicking on the Piecemaker's Quilt Guild link on my sidebar.
Today was another first for me. I handed over my Carolina Crossroads quilt top (made from Bonnie Hunter's first online mystery) to a local LA quilter to be finished in time for the quilt show. She does wonderful work and comes highly recommended. I know I'll never get to finish all of the tops in my pile if I wait for me to quilt them. I added a small dark green border and then a six inch floral that I thought looked perfect with it.
Since I didn't get a stash report done last week, I'll do a combined one this Sunday. I have added a few yards.....
Oh, and Debi emailed that I won her fq bundle! Can't wait to see them up close. Debi is the creator and organizer of the Fall Into Fall and Whirling Into Winter Giveaways.
Khris kindly nominated me for these blog awards for striving for excellence in my hobbies or quilting. Thank you, Khris.
