Now that the Quilt is Finished......

Today I was supposed to go to Tacoma with my neighbor so he could take care of some insurance stuff. When I went over to his house, I found out we would not be going after all. He got "chewed" up by his daughter and granddaughters. So, he decided to turn his phone off and we would go to the casino. He gave me money to play with. I won and lost and gave him a little over half what he gave me to play with. I did win a bonus spin of 49 spins and won $89 with an 80 cent bet.

Finally made it back home around 2 pm. That was after playing a couple of games of cribbage, and this time I skunked him.

I started the first basket yesterday. One side is a little pucker, but I think I can deal with that. Really don't want to redo it. I'll work on the flower tonight.

Last night I was basting a lot of leaves on the two blocks I've been working with. I know I need to go and get my "Carolina Lilly" block and finish that for my quilt. I'll try and do that this weekend. I've got to get past tomorrow and then I can stay home and relax. I'm going to figure out which projects will be next, since the guilt wall blocks are being done slowly. I also need to work on two basket blocks for quilt friends.

My mind is going in several different directions. I can't believe finishing a quilt would make me feel lost. I do a little, though. I need to work on another UFO. I was telling mom today that I need to get with her and figure out the border for my "Affairs of the Heart" quilt. Once that is done, then I can cross one more thing off my list. Other than quilting. I don't count my tops that need to be quilted, as that list is long. Think I have about 10 ready for quilting. I can think of at least 4 UFO's but I know there is a heck of a lot more. I have a quilt I want to do, but need to finish at least one more UFO before I pull it out to work on.

I will work on my photos of quilts. It's a work in progress page. I'll let you know when I have them all listed. Or at least most of them listed. In the meantime, I'm Happy Quilting.


This morning I was up bright and early. As soon as the sun was up, so was I. It had finally cooled down around 3 am this morning..... We t...
