A first and a finish ...

Here's my tiny man sharing his first. It's his first trophy ever. This morning he celebrated the end of his first season of basketball with his little under 8 team, and they all received participation awards. He was just so excited, it's just super fun!

And here is my finish. On Thursday at around quarter to midnight, I finished quilting and applied the binding to the charm square quilt. In stolen moments over the last two days I hand sewed the reverse side of the binding, and now the quilt is complete.

Slowly, slowly I'm reducing the number of unfinished tops I have to quilt. I believe I only have two left now. Of course, that number does not include UFO's - I haven't counted them, but I know I have several tops in various stages of construction. I'm not sure I want to know how many :-)

I'm almost finished quilting on a top for a student, and then I'll start another, which will be the last one before we head off on our big adventure. Only six more sleeps!!

You can just see how delighted he is! Congratulations to him.

Sigh...I remember those days. Now I have to wait for the grandsons to get big enough. :-)
