Sunday Afternoon...


The Machine quilting is complete.  I need to wash out the old marker lines.  But I'm tickled it's done.


One for the books--- a collage of fat quarters..Not my favorite quilt but a great one for keeping someone warm at night.

It reminds me not to quit and give up on pieces-- no matter how old they are.  I'm going to work on a brand new piece next...then back to finding another UFO. 

Summer is flying fast.  We're losing 2 minutes of sunshine a day...yuck...
I find myself looking for any excuse to be outside.  I live on my porch-- where I'm typing right now. Weeding the garden, watering flowers, running my pups... reading a book.  Just to listen to the woods.  Lawnmowers are completely insulting - unless they are push mowers...somehow they fit the picture.

It's beautiful and if you don't like it, I'd be happy to take it off your hands! :) Congratulations on a finish!

It sounds like a peaceful place to be, your Upper Peninsula... lush and relaxing. I think your quilt is beautiful... love the fabric colors!

Hey, if you're looking for UFO's, I have a few you can work on!

I love the feeling of completing an old project. The sense of accomplishment is great. I need to keep picking away at UFO's if only for that reason.

It's a really pretty quilt and I'm glad you didn't give up on it. It looks great.

I agree about the mowers....

I don't mind lawnmower noise in the distance, next door not so much. But then again its not for long and the curb appeal is a pleasant result :-)

Hello Melanie,

That pot is just perfect. Well done on your finishes, sounds like you have the perfect spot to stitch.

Happy days.

I love the quilt and you can't beat a finish! Sorry, our days are stealing your extra sunlight and each day gets a little longer as we move toward Spring.
