Andy received his QOV today--this was the first of several yet to come.  He was truly surprised and, like most others, said he was undeserving.  Really?!  But I think he liked it!

Two more


Two more QOV's picked up from longarmer today.  And I thought I was doing good on my binding pile...sigh.  LOL!!  Dropped off the last (hopefully) one when I was picking these two up.

Still binding (and binding and binding)


I'm making pretty good progress and this is my DONE pile (except for labels).  All of the HOB quilts have even been washed with plenty of color catchers thrown in the mix!  That little cutey on top was uncovered as I was trying to clean up and organize so I threw a binding on it, too!  Wish I'd had it done a little sooner as I intended for it to be a spring table topper.  Guess it is technically still spring for a little while longer.

I have been using the end of the kitchen counter for my cutting surface of late and I was doing some cleaning on the REAL cutting table in the sewing room so I could move my mess in there.  GAH!  I uncovered way too many projects at a standstill.  I need to try to contain them in one place and a list would be nice so I can work on them and mark them off as I finish (IF that happens..ugh).  I don't even want to begin to think how many UFO's are scattered around.

Binding blues

I've received 7 quilts (from 2 different longarmers) that now need binding..YIKES!!  These are the 3 I've attached the binding to and now need the finishing touch by hand.  When I picked up the 5 QOV's, I dropped of two more and have one more to drop off when I pick up the 2 finished.  This is my pile at the moment.

It looks tame but I'm still freaking out (why I do not know..it is what it is).  I really need to get busy with the evening hand stitching but tonight is bunco.  Priorities, dontcha know?!  HA

I've been working on another UFO that I uncovered (which may also wind up being a QOV) as well as a red, white and blue AND a green and purple trip around the block (Bonnie Hunter's).  Also got quite a few pillowcases cut and ready to sew if ever there's a little down time.  🙁  Wish me luck!
