Went into the sewing room just to glue baste my leaves onto my second (right side) border for BTCT quilt.
Then I was interrupted by the mailman who brought me this.
It's a bumper sticker that I won because I became a "fan" on Facebook for the group called "The Faces of Kawasaki Disease".
I haven't talked about this, but my grandson was diagnosed with this just a few weeks ago. He is just 5. We won't know how he has been affected by this disease until the 28th of this month when he goes through a whole battery of tests to see if there is any damage to his heart. This is a very rare disease and there isn't a whole lot known about it, so they have put it into the "auto immune disease" category. Anyway, we have been on pins and needles for several weeks now and saying a lot of prayers. If you are interested in finding out more about this disease, check it out on Facebook or just Google "Kawasaki Disease".

So, I have been finding backings and piecing batting scraps together and have four of them ready for the quilter.
This is a Schnibbles quilt and it is lying on its backing.
I have two turkeys.
This baby quilt is going.

But now this one which is just a bunch of left over blocks (hst) from my Crows in the Corner still needs borders and I can't remember what I had bought for it (doesn't pay to clean up your sewing room and organize your fabrics). So I am interviewing several different fabrics here.
Ok....I need to get back in there and straighten up the mess that I just made.
I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017. I got this pattern from a b...
Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so. The first on...
This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
