Happy, Happy

Happy! Happy, to have finished this quilt. Last night I hand basted the binding, washed it and threw it on the bed! Done! Not a beauty, but a utility quilt. That's fine with me.

I am almost done with this spare room. There was no way I could keep this room empty as it would be too depressing. Glad to have an extra bed and my desk to be tucked away instead of in the hub of the house. My plan is to get the boys graduation and wedding pictures up and make a collage on the wall with them all.

My promise to myself was to finish this room so I could finish my closet. Well, we have most of it done. Except for my shoes. They are still all over the floor. I've never counted how many pairs I have but it's safe to say that I have well over 50. I need to find bins to put them in categories but the thought of shopping for the right size, color and shape gives me hives right now. NOT IN THE SHOPPING MOOD. So, when it hits me I'll take care of it. And that's a (new) promise! I have to get my pictures picked out and framed so I have to add that to the shopping list. That's for a future manic moment, I guess! ;]

THIS means THAT!

Halleluia! Because I finished THIS, I get to work on THAT!

You can see by this stack that I am done for now with customer quilts. Now I can work on Cameron's quilt. I need to get it done in the next few weeks. I don't mind a deadline. I work better under pressure. I play around too much if I have time to spare (see previous post).

And you would think I would have some spare time because I am posting. I do not! See what I mean?!?


A Few Quilt Tops Done

Several weekends ago I finished these two quilt tops. I like them both. You may be able to see that I used a completely different inner sashing (on the quilt with the blocks set on point) than I had previously considered. Unfortunately, I won't be quilting these in the next month or so. Maybe this summer?

You probably recognize the color-book blocks. I think they originally came from a coloring book? Do you know? I think they are adorable. You can see I used colors on mine instead of embroidery. Quicker and easier! That's always my motto when it comes to finishing one of my own quilts!
