So Close.....

The two-year-old UFO if sooooo close to being a finished top. Just need to miter the corners. Maybe it'll get done yet tonight.

For tonight's entertainment, here's a video of my kitty after I fed him some cheese. I guess it must have stuck to his teeth or something. When he kept licking and licking I just had to grab the camera and video him.

Lick, lick, lick, lick.

Lime Green

I've got two sets of bright w/lime green center blocks done for the Feb./Mar. Heartstrings quilt group project. I get carried away cutting strips and the sewing is addictive. Anyway, those are done now & just need to be mailed off.

Love that lime green!!

Some quilting done

Hard to believe it's been over two weeks since my last post. There just hasn't been much going on to write about except to complain about the cold...why bother???  I have gotten a couple tops quilted....too bad they're not mine.

Progress is being made on a 2 yr. old UFO. The borders are ready to sew on. I hate putting on borders and it will have three of them so I've sewed the strips together and will miter the corners. I decided that should be less of a PITA than sewing each strip on individually. We shall see.  My grandson actually asked about this quilt when he stayed the weekend. I had been working on blocks when I stayed with the kids at their house.

I have really been enjoying the much warmer weather. Yesterday I made a trip to Norfolk to do some returns, spend a gift card & run a few other errands. I noticed how many Senior Citizens were out and about.....scads of 'em, oxygen bottles, walkers and all.  With the ice mostly thawed they probably felt safe going out for the first time in weeks. Today I'm off to O'Neill to try to spend a couple gift cards at the quilt shop & run another DH errand. Friends report that the quilt shop is looking kind of empty so we'll see what I find. I always worry they'll close their doors before I get my gift cards spent.
