Where’d the time go?

Wow, 2 weeks sure fly by fast!

Let’s see, here’s a run down, in no particular order:

I volunteered to quilt for the American Hero Quilts organization, and received two lovely quilts. One thing I like about these quilts is that they are a useable size, not just a lap quilt. Then again, I always want to make a bigger quilt! I already know the design that I’m going to put on the Rail Fence quilt, I just need to get the gold thread. My husband helped me decide on the color of thread. He’s pretty good at that, and I appreciate his input.

The second quilt is pretty awesome, and I am going to be challenged on this one. It’s has Ohio stars all over it, so I need to do some research on how to best make it look good. Don’t have a photo of that one yet, though.

I have been busy quilting. I mean really quilting, not just piecing. I finished my customer’s third quilt and handed them off to her sister, who will hand them to another relative to get them to her. In fact, they should be there already, and I am dying to know if she likes my work. I will have to wait to post photos, though. It would be very impolite to publicize her quilts before she’s seen them.

I am also working on a quilt for a toddler; it’s a surprise for someone, so I can’t say much more than that. But it’s just darling, and I can’t wait to see my friend’s face!

A co-worker is leaving us and moving out of the area, so having a pizza party tonight, so will get back to sewing on Wednesday. I can’t wait!
