I LOVE the material that is on the back:

Nice, cosy flannel!

Finishes times three

Finished the binding on my bed quilt:

 

Finished a reversible Thanksgiving/Halloween runner that I am giving to a very hard working RNat work-just because she works very hard and needs some praise!

 

And made a friend this cosmetic bag, just because (I fell in love with the fabric and thought of her):

WAYWO

I'm working on sorta kinda matching quilts for a boy and girl twins! Our niece and nephew-in-law are due in October, but probably will deliver early, do I am trying to get these done for the shower later this month!

Marvel's Super Women:

 

And for the boy twin, Marvel's Super Men:

 

 

Just need to add names, borders-then quilt and bind!

Pretty good work for today!

And my quilt is finally off the frame:

After I cut both the batting and backing too short! I actually hand stitched both while on the frame because I could not figure another way to add to it!! Now I am chanting, "measure twice, cut once" over and over!

Well, it's off the frame, the binding is sewn on, just have to stitch the binding to the back! Hand stitching the binding down is usually my favorite part of the quilt, but in this 95 degree heat wave, it may be more of a chore! But I must get this done!M

Also, the top of the matching pillows are done, just need to finish-hopefully tomorrow!

 

 

Many Thanks!

 

I so often forget to be thankful for all I've got! Not just material things, but some pretty solid, fantastic relationships, and a career that pays the bills, so Thank You God!

Book Club

We met at my bff's house for book club this month! A lovely spread and great conversation was just what the doctor ordered after a drama filled day at work!

I really enjoyed this book! Probably my favorite so far since we started book club this year!
