So Happy to take this off the frame, it seems like it has been forever..... I think I just got tired of working on this quilt. I change some of the quilting designs so I could get it off the frame. Will block it tonight and get the binding on this weekend. In fact I think I will call DIL for a favor....lol
I quilted a (sloppy) ribbon cause I was tired of working on this quilt. I had feathers planned for that area .... Oh will! I could rip it out next year and put the feathers in. I'll think on it.... Naaaah!! It's going back on the frame.... I'll add feathers to the ribbon.
After I took the kids home decided not to paint the walls. Went up stairs to my sewing room and made slip covers for the pillows on the sofa. I keep a throw on the sofa because of the pets and take it off when we have company. White slip covers under the throw.
My new French Chairs with rush seats
It's raining here today .....hummmmmm Good day to QUILT!!

Cute ... they look just like me.
Did not get the painting done today. We decided that we would have a play day and go out for lunch. There is always another day to paint and clean.
My little quilter
She wanted to quilt today, but I said not today, can you tell she was happy ...lol
We always have fun when we hang out together ..... I think gram ma is the biggest kid ...lol We usually play games, shop, eat pizza, when they have a week off from school. Next time we will camp out.

Sitting on the porch this morning.....
and look at what was inside
I had a special place in the kitchen for the plates but changed my mind, they will go in living room where everyone can see them. Now I have to get busy and paint the wall a soft yellow on Monday.
THANK YOU ANYA!

Getting ready for show in a couple of weeks. Need to put the finishing touches on the quilt and check it over to make sure there are no strings attached. Making the sleeve after I read Karen's book on how to......
I couldn't remember how far from the top to place the sleeve, so I had to dig out the book ...... AGAIN!!
All the way from Montana, do you believe that??? Yep!! Montana Should be here Friday.
I thought I would show you my sewing room. It is really my guest bedroom, but some how it is getting cluttered up with my quilting stuff or do I just want Raylene to feel at home when she comes to visit me.....lol
The batting is usually stored in the basement, but we were planning on moving so everything got packed up and moved. Now it is slowing making it way back into the house. Pillows forms in the plastic bags that will be slip covered today to be place on the new slip cover sofa. I did get them cut and ready to go last night.
NOW TO BEGIN MY DAY
