Finished the quilt for my Mom. I thought about making her wait until she was here...but where's the fun in that? I am very happy with how it turned out- wish you could see it closer up. For those of you that don't know, my folks live in a barn- lots of wood. I think this will look so nice on their bed. It is pretty much one room, so they'll be able to enjoy is from everywhere!
We are still getting used to having Joe gone. Abe wanted an envelope this morning so he could send Joe a cough drop. I think we all have moments like that- thinking to get this or that for Joe- only to realize he's not around anymore! He called yesterday to say that he passed his physical and will start his new job come Monday. We are all excited for him- he gets to wear a hardhat and the kids are thinking that is pretty cool.
I quilted a Grandmother's Flower Garden(72"x72"), yesterday. I found it in an antique shop and it has a few issues, but overall, a nice quilt. I have to bind it still and that will be a big job. I did cut some of the edges off into straight lines- instead of all those hexagons. But it is still zigzaggy. I just did a medium small meander on it, with cotton batting. It should wash up really nice and soft. Keepin' busy.
