It's Bittersweet!

The applique has almost come to an end. As of 9:40, Monday evening I was down to the last yellow centers for the corner square flowers.

By 10 o'clock they were finished and I was pressing the border.  I laid it out on the floor to be ready to put it together tomorrow night. (So glad I have wood floors instead of carpet. So much cleaner.)

Becca, do you realize that sometimes I make quilts and decide I like them too much to give away?

Now I'm excited and ready to go tomorrow evening after school. It will take me awhile to get the quilt top placed exactly as I need it and pinned on to applique. Then the applique will take longer than I think it will. And I know sandwiching the quilt will take a long while.

Then I just remembered that my basting pins are in my "Tree Time" quilt.  When I made the last baby quilt I had to purchase another package of pins. There was only one more package at Walmart and who knows if they have ordered any more. It's only been about two weeks now.  But I'll stop by on my way to school tomorrow and hopefully they will have 3 or 4 packages.

If all goes well, I'll begin quilting later this week. Hopefully Wednesday. Thursday we have Parent-Teacher conferences from 1:15 to 7:00.  Talk about a long, long day.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
