Feeling energized.....

Things are moving along here. 
I am two rows away from being half way with the thimbles quilt. 
As a reminder, these are 1" thimbles and the rows have been together for some time.  In fact, on going through some old photos, I found that these rows have been done since 2006.  Egads!  If that doesn't make one want to get busy on some UFO's then I don't know what!
Also, I finished the jelly roll quilt. 

I feel like I have my own baby quilt with that minky on the back.   It was so warm and toasty working with this on my lap while applying the binding. 
I am going to have to keep a close eye on this one though.  Already my daughter saw it and kind of gave me the doe-eyed look and an "aaaaahhhhhh" sound coming from her telling  me that she  would like THAT and then my grandson who LOVES soft things said he wanted it.  Yup....going to have to keep a close eye on this one. 
One side note for  this weekend.  Kudos to my three grandsons for all winning ribbons and trophies for their Pinewood Derby in Boy Scouts.  They were all very excited.
Have a great week!


  1. Wow, you are sailing through that hand-piecing! It looks great!! The Minkee sounds tempting, I may have to try it. Congrats to all the boys on their races, I bet they had fun.

  2. 3 cheers for the boys - what great times for them. Love your tumblers - I have a tiny tumbler template (3 T's) waiting to be used. Going through a "where is my quilting mojo?" time - so many projects and no energy. What is your secret??

  3. Faye, isn't this the quilt I sent you small pieces of fabric for? It is so pretty. Will have to look at it longer to see if I recognize any of the fabric.



My husband built me some shelves for the "stash" closet so that I no longer have to stack all my large Rubbermaids on top of eac...
