THURSDAY?

Thursday? It's already Thursday? How did THAT happen?

The week has just flown by and I haven't really accomplished too much.  I did finish this orphan quilt ...
 There's a little yellow flange that looks wavy - it is. I intentionally flipped it back and forth while quilting. Not sure I love the look but I thought the blue needed a bit of color separation.  This orphan was a real challenge. There weren't a lot of completed blocks, just bits and pieces.  Not bad overall!

And ... because I'm such a glutton for stress - here's the next set of projects I'm going to do ...
 In case you didn't notice - yes, that's Christmas fabric you're looking at! I'm going to make a few shop samples for And Sew It Goes.  My "have to" sewing isn't finished but, what the heck ... why not add in some Christmas sewing?!

AND ... I thought I might like to try my hand at using a drop spindle. My friend Starlyn (who owns but doesn't use this piece of equipment) will be away for the month of July.  I'm borrowing it and have a month to master it.

Today isn't a sewing day (much like the rest of this week) - errands and a little grandkid babysitting, but first ...

I'm finshing my coffee! These cute and large (YAY!) mugs were a gift from my friend Terri. She thought several quilting lessons (most via the phone!) earned me a present. Isn't she sweet! Another example - it's great hanging around people who "get you."

Well, get you! The orphan quilt is marvelous! How do you manage to find all those blocks that match all the time? I like the wavy thing -- sort of like that edge you put on one of your vests, right? Can't wait to see the shop samples! Hope you'll show and tell.
