In October, if you recall, I went up north with the Beach Girls and I managed to finish this top in spite of the puppy taking off with my stuff.
I was all hepped up on an Angela Walters quilting book when I got this loaded on the frame.
But the back looks pretty darned gorgeous! We are in the midst of dark and dreary December weather so it may be a while before I can photograph the front with any measure of success.
One of the gals even went home and brought back some placemats she'd made from orphan blocks. I quilted 24 of them on a huge piece of backing & batting. I've returned them and the girls are doing binding so we can gift them in January.
Honestly. Some people are just NEVER happy. My stash report looks not-as-impressive as it should because I WON a kit at guild. That added 6 m. to my report. Totally not my fault. Although, I DO love the fabrics - all orange based. Yum.
Used this month 12.6 m
Used YTD 81.55 m
Added this month 6 m **not my fault!!
Added YTD 125.75 m
Net YTD + 44.2 m
I have three more quilts to finish up before Christmas and then I'm taking two weeks to do stuff around here.
The bedroom is getting a bit of a makeover. The windows will get new roman blinds, side panels and valances, then a matching bed skirt. I may even clean the windows and vacuum under the bed. Although, really, I don't want to set my sights too high. :-)
On the quilting front, I have the half-hexagon top that needs quilting, and the bowtie quilt that is supposed to be the UFO challenge. Oops, I also have the Blooming 9-patch top that needs a border... also from the UFO challenge.
If I keep adding things to this list I may call myself overwhelmed and just curl up with a good book instead.
