OK, I have stopped whimpering ……in the scheme of things this is not a biggie!!! So moving on!
There are a couple group deadlines I am just squeaking in under the wire….. The Simply Charming Mini quilt along, and Christmas Through The Year. Happy to say my mini is done, including the quilting and binding!!!!!. I used scraps left over from a quilt I made a number of years back, from the line, Old Fashioned Charm. I will be linking up over at Kathy’s for this finish. Thanks to Kathy and Darlene for this fun quilt along, and a big shout out to Darlene for cheering me on in more ways than I can say!!!!!! Kim has a link up for projects finished this month for the Christmas Through The Year group. I quickly whipped up a couple oven mitts (above photo). It feels good to have my Christmas box with a few things tucked in there already. Thanks Kim for continuing on with our group!
Yesterday was my meet up with my friend Lani!!! So fun. There’s a quilt shop halfway between us (about a 1 1/2 hour drive). Of course there is a quilt shop involved!!!….. Quilt N’ Things in Montrose, and then lunch at our favorite Mexican food restaurant. Talking was the best part of the whole day, and we covered so much!!! Love you to pieces Lani. You have always been such a good, constant friend to me. Lani brought along some show and share, and we had ourselves a trunk show in the back of her car!! These first two quilts she made for a charity group…so cute and two lucky little ones will be happy to have them. Then there’s this parade of beauties…..WOWZERS!!! I love each and every one. We are planning a quilt getaway weekend at her cabin in the woods….I can’t wait.
Thanks to my friends Chris and Karen for quilting my Quilts of Valor quilt, I am happy to report it is all done. I finished the binding yesterday afternoon. This quilt was made up from swap blocks I received through a Prodigy quilt exchange 15 years ago.
Now on to fixing my blog!!!! Happy end of the week everyone.
