An update

First of all, thank you all for the kind comments on the flamingos.

I've been working night and day and the black/white and red quilt is now nearly finished.  The quilting is done; the binding is done; all the yoyo's and shell buttons are on.  Still have to stitch the lower part of the sleeve and the label.

I'm getting ready to stitch the binding/sleeve and label on the flamingos.  Then I just have the binding/sleeve and label on the fish to do.    All before morning.   

So Harry and I will pull another all night' er.   Mary does this all the, I'm normally in bed by 10pm so this is a huge stretch for me....I'll be exhausted for a month!

Tomorrow is quilt take in. Monday and Tuesday is judging;  Wednesday is take care of all the stuff I forgot day;  Thursday is show set up; and Friday and Saturday the show is open to the public.   

Enough talking...I've got to get back to work!


  1. I finally got myself switched back to sleeping at least part of the night after staying up 24++ hours Wed/Thurs. Now if I can just stay on that schedule until Tuesday when I leave for VA I'll be doing good.

  2. I can see why you said your postcards will be late! Take your vitamins!

  3. I'm excited to come to the show Friday. I got my new sewing machine today - I have to finish figuring out all it can do but I'm in LOOOOVE!!! My old one was 20-years old so it is a whole new world!

  4. Don't forget to take time for yourself, rmember to eat and drink.


Thanks for visiting! I always enjoy your comments.
