WHOHOOOOOOOO!!!! DOING THE QUILTY DANCE

Yesterday I finished the binding.....

That was one dance a doing!!!

(I wish I knew how to crop photos to where some of the items you see were not in there) Also, this is a queen sized quilt on a king sized bed....I think it will fit rather nicely in this person's home.

After that I made two pillow shams and two pillow cases....

Two more dances a doing!!



The shams took me a good 3 hours...sheweee...maybe that deserves and extra dance???

So if you felt the earth trimmer last night, it was me!!! (embarrassed smile).

Is it wrong to covet something you have made for someone else. My husband said, just make you one....and I said....No way, takes too much work!!!!!

Which as I was sewing last night that I remembered that I have the cutest quilt that needs to be finished and then I wouldn't have to covet this one.
