Here's To Short-Lived Resolutions

I've only ordered a yard & a half of fabric this year so far for a border on a top I've had put together for at least three years...maybe more.  Got it out with the intention of  making backing & piecing batting for it and decided I REALLY didn't like the border on it and ripped it off.  Hope I like the new fabric better.

As a side note....I'm ready for Spring.  This cold weather is getting very old!

You Would Think.....

...that since I haven't left the house since Monday afternoon that I would have gotten a lot of sewing done.

Not so.

The phone rang a lot....can I blame my lack of accomplishment on that???  

Didn't think so!!!

Yesterday I sewed up 24 quilt blocks for a block drive (that ended at the end of Nov.).

Today I pieced together four border strips, packaged up those 24 blocks and a baby gift to go in the mail on Saturday.

See, I don't plan to leave the house tomorrow either.  :)  My plan for tomorrow is to put borders on Orca Bay. I may or may not get them all on, but I at least want to get the inside border and the pieced borders on. I want the quilt a little larger so I'll probably put on another border out of the same fabric as the inside border and then bind in black. That should look OK.

Unless I change my mind.

I REALLY have to do better this year than I did over the past week!!
