My goodness, I've been missing for a whole week!! I do tend to lose track of time, sorry about that *VBS* It's quite amazing how rapidly the days and weeks zip by. I need to be thinking about Christmas...and soon! The view out my window was quite spectacular at 7 this morning. I can't resist opening the door and capturing it,digitally. This is looking south east.
And here is the view if I turn towards the north east. I think I have snapped these two views in almost every season *VBS*
Last weekend saw the finish of another UFO project. This one combines things from 3 UFO's. Two of the bags are completely emptied, but there are more of those black/white squares units. I pieced a backing and a batting and machine quilted it in the ditch.
This is the backing I put together for this orphan/UFO block quilt. I have a bag of assorted pieces of backing flannel, too small to be a whole backing. These pieces worked perfectly and made that bag emptier. AND....I have "offically" used up ALL the 1.5" strips from my bin, as varigated binding. I've lost track of how many, but in the neighborhood of 7 quilts bound with it. I'll have to go back and count!! This is "finish #11", I spent the week, at the dining room table, cutting up more scraps! It's so rewarding to see those assorted baskets and bags "go empty"! And of course, I had to start a new project from some of those cut up scraps. I'll share that tomorrow...promise!
