Finish #2!

I finished the purple wallhanging!!! I started it in 1999; it feels so good to have it done. My quilting isn't the greatest but at least it's finished; and it only took 10 years. Yikes!

I've started organizing my stash, it was in terrible shape. When I moved to my new sewing room I just stacked fabric in wire drawers. Now I'm folding it around a ruler and stacking it so that each piece can be seen. It actually takes up less room and looks so much better! I still have my browns, blacks and creams to do. I've ran across quite a few "what on earth was I thinking" fabrics. Now I need to start some scrappy quilts and use the fabric up.

We're having weird weather-freezing rain yesterday and snow. This morning it was 61, now it's in the 30's and we've had more snow showers. No accumulation todaybut who knows what tonight will bring. Good quilting weather!

first finish of the year!

Yesterday Annie came over for our regular sewing day and I had her help me go thru my ufo's. I found 38! And I know there are some we didn't find. I did purge some and took them to guild last night. Now they're someone else's ufo's! Today I finished a wallet that I had started who knows when.

The inside didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked but it's DONE!

Mary had her quilt she made for her daughter at guild; it's beautiful. And huge.
