Well, I'm still feeling like poo!!! Andrew is still sick too! Luckily so far Hunter and Richard have not gotten it! I have been moving from the bed to the couch most of the time but you know how it is being a mother. Mom's just can't have any down time!!! So I am fixing very simple dinners and everyone seems to be happy with that. Anyway, I just haven't felt like sitting at the sewing machine much so I have been working on other things. Here is a quilt that I have been handquilting for YEARS!!! I always like to have at least one handquilting project going on at all times but actually I have two. This one, I don't work on very long at a time, I don't even really like the quilt and it is one that I did probably 6 yrs ago, I think I started handquilting it one Winter because I was bored. Anyway, it keeps me warm working on it when I have the chills!
As I mentioned in my last post, I had a new nephew born last Monday. I have saw him yet other than photos, I don't want to take the chance on making the little guy sick. I know I have had 9 months to make him a quilt, so I guess I am just lazy. I made the top a couple of months ago, so today, I spread it out on my bed and tied it. I just didn't feel like sitting at the machine and quilting it. It didn't take me very long to tie it. I already had the binding ready so I did attach it by machine, but now I need to sew the binding down on the back. I will work on that tonight and tomorrow. It should not take too long to do. I also finished hand sewing the binding down on another quilt.
I didn't take a photo of the other quilt but maybe I will tomorrow. Anyway, at quilt guild we are having a little competition on finishing some UFO's. Lord knows I have a million. :) So both of these quilts were on my list!!!!! :)
