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.

  1. Another border hater? Lori hates them too. Don't bother me at all.

    I have been thinking about you and wondering how your weather was.
