What a busy weekend this was! Saturday, my Quilty Friend came over and we stitched and gabbed for four hours. I feel like I've been at a retreat when I read the list of what I accomplished quilt-wise:
1. Labeled a Quilt of Valor quilt and got it ready to mail out.
2. Labeled TheKid's newest quilt
3. Labeled Sheryl's quilt
4. Labeled the charity baby quilt
5. Bordered the pumpkin stitchery
6. Layered and basted #5
7. Cut and stitched the binding on for Sheryl's quilt
Now I am enjoying sitting on the couch and stitching down the other side of the binding. I really do enjoy handwork and hope to do more of it when my knitting frenzy has passed.
Note: as of Monday morning #7 is complete too!
The picture? It's of the Flower Seed Packet baby quilt that I'll be giving to charity. It's tied rather than quilted. This panel of flower seed packets was in my pre-printed (quilter friendly) orphan box. There was almost enough of that green and white print in the stash for the backing too, but I had to piece another bit on.
Today was full of menus, stacking firewood, laundry, grocery shopping -- you know, the household chores. I also bought a new scanner. WooHoo! My last one just stopped working one day and I tried doing without it for about a month and it was driving me crazy. I never realized how much I used my scanner until I didn't have it.
Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow along with a 30 degree drop in temperature from today's high temp. Hope you all had a nice weekend.
