What a day!

Yesterday I finally got the top all sewn together! So that makes me 31 tops that need quilted. :( But I'll eventually get them quilted. I think I will add a simple border to this before I quilt it but I'll have to dig through my stash to see what I have. When I add the border it will make it a queen size quilt. I like nice big quilts.Also yesterday evening, Richard, Hunter and I took a walk in the woods. A nice little walk in the other direction from where I went the other day. It is so peaceful and relaxing here in the woods.Today Richard's sister, Vanessa had a minor surgery. So we went to Pikeville hospital to visit her. She is always there when he needs her so we wanted to be there for her. She is such a sweet person and is always one to count on. This was about a 65 mile drive from the house. While we were there we stopped by the lookout in Pikeville. You can read about it here on this sign.
Let's just say....I AM SCARED TO DEATH OF HEIGHTS!!! I really get freaked out! As you can see it is pretty high.
Last year we went to "The Breaks" and it was higher up but I did pretty good there. I think my problem today was that this cage thing was not on a flat ground underneath! Here you can see Richard and Hunter on it and Hunter crawled to the edge! LOL!
Richard took this photo from the edge. You can see the river and the tiny cars below.
I started out on it and freaked out!!! Had a panic attack, started crying, and couldn't breathe! Richard took this photo of my big butt hoofing it back to the truck!!! Took me a good 45 minutes to calm down. I'm fine and can laugh about it all now.
It's been a long day and I am really tired. I think I will go to bed early tonight. Hope it is a beautiful week. I just love this nice weather!

Lovely top, I love quilts without borders so would probably leave it alone but I'm sure you'll find something nice.

I'm afraid of heights too...I can look out but not down!

The quilt is beautiful without a border, but you have so many color choices for a border. It will be so pretty!

Kristie, I don't blame you one bit about heights.....OMG, I go crazy on the high-rise roadways and bridges.....Eeekkk!

That pretty top sure reminds me of all the warm, spring weather we've been having. Except today. Toady is cold and gray and they even mentioned the word "snow" when talking about tonight. What!?! It was in the 70s all week! Spring, I'm ready for you to really be here!

Oh man, that would've freaked me out a bit, too!! And the quilt looks awesome. I can remember when you had more than 70 quilts that would need quilting. You've come a long way!!
