Working day

It's almost afternoon and I'm just getting ready to work. My husband took my kid to the zoo. The dog just went outside, after stealing several toys from my daughter's room - she couldn't get me to play with her so she just gave up. I've got to finish the quilt today. I completed the top for a quilt for my kiddo in October and I just haven't been able to finish it. I don't know why. I love it. It's really a great piece of work. And I know she will love it since she wants to keep everything I make. The only quilt that we have that I made is the first one. It's not bad, it's just a first quilt - it needs a little repair, right now, too. Anyway, I really, really want to finish the quilt for Penn, so I will work on it right now.

here it is...

and the back

so close to being finished - what am I waiting for?

Please don't forget to enter the two giveaways of Architextures fabrics that I have going on right now. The Stamp blog entry and the Let's Get Acquainted blog entry include the rafflecopter widgets. Each comment earns you one chance to win four fat quarters of Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander. These are wonderful, low-volume prints. I got my hands on some of it and knew that I wanted to share with y'all (I was born in Texas, I can totally say y'all).

Good luck on the drawing - may the odds ever be in your favor - and all of that.

I think I'm going to put on some Buffy the Vampire Slayer and finish Penn's quilt. Enjoy your Saturday...


  1. Very pretty, I am trying to finish a quilt today too. I want to but keep stopping every 15 minutes. :( Your fabric choices are very nice and you did a great job on the quilting!

  2. Isn't that fantastic as a mom to have your child just LOVE what you make! My wild thing is 9, and I never get tired of seeing him drag around quilts I have made for him. That quilt is lovely. Good luck on getting it finished!

  3. I hope you were blessed with enough time to finish it up! Can't wait to see the finished product :)

  4. Purple and pink--what little girl could resist? Your quilting is looking good. Can't wait to see that back, I see a peek of some cute scrappy piecing!


Thank you for your lovely comments. I really appreciate that you took the time out of your busy schedule to write me a little note. I will do my best to respond to each and every comment that you leave me. Thanks again, and have a wonderful-stupendous-really excellent day!
