Another week FLEW by...

So here it is...Sunday night and another week has flown by. This week went extra fast as I missed some time due to some brief stomach virus. However, progress on the bathroom has been good. Plumbing and electrical are 95%, enouogh to allow for drywalling and one coat of bed and taping. More to come on that this week. I also need to make some major decisions for the sink and find the proper shower pan/tray to fit. This is turning into a big obstacle.

Here is the quilt photo inspiration for today...It is "Flutterby" with Moda prints. The pattern was shown to be downloadable by pdf from Hancock's site but the link never worked :( So I guesss I can' make it only admire it :(

As far as my quilting goes, I managed to put on the borders for the Blended Spring quilt. It is looking good! Must download a photo! Now selecting the backing and it will be ready to quilt. Yipee! I will send out for machine quilting. This is NOT my usual option but one that I think fits this quilt for the overall look. Of course I have not proper backing that is the right size without much piecing so need to work on getting that. I finaly took the old Mystery Quilt to Dot for mcuh awaited binding. Has the quilt been finished for 3 or 4 years? Maybe not that long...

This week I also worked a bit on several old projects in old Baby Boston commons that I adore the taupe gradiated to rich maroon color progression, my son's flannel No Y Seams star. (Really I am working on little stars to finish out the size needed before the border.) And, I finished sewing our baby boy cousin's quilt top minus borders (last Saturday). Still need to find satisfactory borders to finish it off and send to sister-in-law Aimee to quilt. Guess that is this week's update on quilting.

In my other life I have been very productive with more refined migration to Evolve Learning System Course Mgt for various assignments and even did the full online exam last Monday. This is a very satisfying accomplishment! Now...when am I going to get motivated for dissertation work! It better be soon or else!

"can't make it, only admire it" ????????????????????????

Oh, girl, you know better than to throw me a challenge like that !

Find the fussy cut fabric you want for the centers, or change that part, and you and I can start this for you to finish ! You have angle lines on your rulers, don't you?
