And it's quilted!

Ohhh thank heavens, it's quilted! I just finished up the last of the quilting five minutes before I had to go pick the kids up from kindy and school. I have really enjoyed quilting this project, but I don't enjoy having the time crunch so much, it would have been nice to have a little more time to relax about it. But having said that, I'm still just soooo happy with it. You can also just see a sneaky peek of my Sarah Johnson quilt there in the background. I'm sure I've shared that quilt with you all before.

This afternoon I have some chores to do, and I need to can some tomatoes we were given, so if I get a chance this evening, I'll pop the binding on after I pick Amy up from dance.

While at the quilt store yesterday, I picked up my new copy of Quilter's Companion, and while reading thru it last night, I was just so thrilled to see Bonnie's Quiltville website mentioned in the 'net fishing' article. They're doing a write up on places to find directions for string quilts, and Bonnie's site was the second site they mentioned. How fun, I always love to see our buddies names up in lights.

Well, that's it from me for today - chores are beckoning ... I'll chatter with you all later!

You certainly achieve a lot Tazzie. I had a bit of time while sitting with a patient last night at work, so got some knitting done. Sock 1 is at heel turning point, so it will soon be taking shape.

Love your Bears in the Garden quilt. Fresh colours and the flowers add an interesting twist to a traditional pattern :)
