Lots Going On


Finished all of my binding. Three of my largest quilts (and one of the oldest) DONE!


Check out the new ironing board. Isn't it pretty. 18 inches wide and four legs. Every ironing board I've had in the past was a hand-me-down with T-feet...the T stood for teeter-totter. Ever time it would tip I'd have to remember not to grab the iron and hope there wasn't a cat (or my foot) underneath.


I finished the quilt top I started at my mom's.


And pieced a back for it.


I started Sherri's (This and That) Monday Mystery. Normally I wait until after the mystery is over but this time I decide to brave it...here are the first two blocks. This is going to be fun.


I also cut all my solid scraps into strips and started a new quilt...I'm planning on making a quilt using only solids...


...way out of my comfort zone but I'm really excited about it.

Wow! You did get a lot accomplished. The solids would be out of my comfort zone too, but beautiful.

OOooh finishes! They are stacking up and that's a very good thing. Congrats! Looks like you are having a great time with new projects too. I think I just bought that same ironing board :)
