Yes believe it or not, I actually worked on a couple of unfinished projects this weekend. 
 That is of course in between, running errands, a very sick child (he's better today, thankfully!!), 
cleaning house and date night with my hubby.
Here's what I did
I know that Halloween is over....but I'm ready for next year, right?!?  This quilt is 64" x 88", just perfect to cuddle up with.  Now to just get it quilted.  I also finally bond a quilt that's been sitting for about 1 1/2 years.  Yep, you read right 18 months.  Sad but true.
Now, back to work.  Today starts the quilts for my third book!!!  Very excited about these projects.
Must get busy, busy, busy!!!!!
Happy Sewing!

We should do this!!!

On Quilty Pleasures, Quiltmaker's Blog, I saw this list: 
compiled by Diane Harris.   What a fun idea!  
I read through the list and found that I need to do more as a quilter.  
There are techniques I haven't tried yet and things I should do. 
So, I'm going to choose a couple from this check list and get busy. 
Because if it involves quilting, I'm all for it!!!
How about you?

Don't forget to enter the contest to win Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Vol 8
Entries close Nov 19 midnight.

Enjoy your weekend and Happy Sewing!!!!!
