In the picture below I had 106 more inches to finish binding-----------
I had this all done by 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Then threw it in the washer along with the Juggle and Reflections quilts I had made for the last two hops I participated in. Now all three have that crinkled aged look. I will be mailing it on to my niece as soon as I find a box to put it in. Folded up it measures 14 x 14 x 4 so good luck with that, huh?
Then I moved on to Harvest and finished it up around 4 this afternoon. Horrid picture of it though. I need to borrow Glynda's fence or put a rod on the back of the shed again to get an outside shot. I pinned the paint chip to the piece so I don't forget to take it with me to guild. Hooray for a finish even if I won't display it this year.
When I stripped the sheets off the bed to launder them this morning, I switched over to the Christmas Patience Corner. Then switched out all the wall hangings to the winter/Christmas themes. Other than getting out the Nativity set and maybe the ceramic Christmas tree that might be it for decorating this year. DJ and I will have to decide if we trust Skyler enough around the artificial tree. Lately I have had to tell him he is getting a lump of coal in his kitty stocking, LOL. Biting and getting on the kitchen counter to get in the sink! Bad kitty, bad!
I also had him help me get pictures taken of the donation quilts we had on hand. I needed to put numbers on the ones most recently turned in and get them logged into the document. Also I was looking to see if any were large enough to go to teens 12-17. Looks like I will have 7 to take to Gene for the Angel Quilt Project once that binding is done on the last quilted item.
So donation quilt binding awaits but I decided to give my hands a rest and think ahead to my next projects once I am done. I DO have friendship block to do for someone special but first, I need to visit that Debbie Mumm challenge fabric to see if I can come up with a fairly quick top idea for Belles. Needed by Tuesday the 10th. HMMMMMM
Longer range goals: quilt the three donation quilts that remain atop my armoire. They need to be gone and start the year off fresh. Also I signed up for the "pincushion on steroids" blog hop in late January and need to entertain some ideas for that if I get in, LOL. Other than that I am still forming some ideas of what I want to focus on in coming months.
Hope you have had a good weekend----
