This is the help I was getting when I tried to show what was on my design “swing.”
But I had to show that I finally got my flannel log cabin quilt top finished. I decided on a black containment border (I didn’t have enough of the redish center fabric) and then just got the outer border on. Today I hope to get the backing pieced and get everything on the frame for quilting.
After that is done I will be working on BOM blocks: I am doing 3 internet BOMs in addition to 1 LQS BOM and still have my Snowbound blocks to finish (hand embroidery). That should give me plenty of UFOs for next year, don’t you think?
We did have a short but wonderful visit with my sister and brother-in-law. This was an evening of almost non-stop laughter; what fun!
And our DD was really excited to be able to spend some time with her “Aunt:” there is only 7 years between them.
The nicest part of the visit was having 15 year old Jasper here. He is arthritic but was up, running around the house and prancing like an arthritic puppy. They said he was exhausted by the time they got back to the motel.
As you can see, Abby and Buffy were mesmerized by his behavior which brought on more laughter.
I hope to have something new on the wall next week but for now, hop on over to Judy’s blog to see what lots of others are working on.
