Stormy morning

Woke up to pouring rain, thunder and wind this morning. Except for the wind, it sounded beautiful. Would've been nice to stay in bed. But, I've got to get going to go see Sweetie!

I spent the better part of yesterday, Sunday, working on this little quilt. I already had the top done so all it needed was quilting. The binding is nearly done since I stayed up until almost midnight trying to get it finished. Jim says I'm like a dog with a bone when I get started with something. LOL This is a comfort quilt for a little girl and I've got another one started for her sister.

I am sad today. One of our dear online quilting friends departed from this world yesterday. I didn't know Charla in person, but grew to know her through her fun, entertaining posts on Quilts on Review and facebook. We'll miss you, Charla!

Catching up

How long has it been? A month? I can't remember and I forgot to check the date of my last post before I started this one. So, here's one of my favorite pictures of K and her mama. I took this at dinner last week at Cotton Patch. They were wearing matching colored tops. I had to document that, lol. April, I hope you don't mind that I blogged your picture.

And, here it is! The badge/patch quilt is just nearly finished! It only needs binding and it will be done. And, it only took me 8 months! LOL Well, the actual construction only took about two months, off and on, spread out over the eight months. I hope the recipient enjoys it.

I'm almost finished with a prayer shawl! Yup, I decided to make me a shawl. This one is knitted so it's taken me a lot longer than the crocheted shawls took. I'll have a picture soon so maybe it won't take me so long to blog again.
