Sun and Done!

Look what we had today!


It takes sunshine to make shadows.


And inside...


Sunflower's quilt is officially finished. Woohoo!

No, you don't get to see the quilting up close. ;- ) It's pretty basic; all I did was outline the stars and then run a line of stitching just inside the purple border. Somehow I managed to bleed on the quilt even though I was machine quilting. (I'm so talented!) I think it happened when I was taking out some basting pins. Fortunately I knew about the trick to use your own saliva to get the blood out.

The question now is, what to tackle next?

Oh, by the way, DD's pregnancy is officially at 34 weeks and she is completely miserable. A C-section is starting to sound good to this young woman who previously was determined to bring her twins into the world naturally. Her doctor is now shooting for 36 weeks, at which time DD will be taken off the anti-contraction medication. At that point we'll probably have babies within 48 hours one way or another.

Congratulations on your finish. That's always an exciting moment... You did a nice job.

Just think, you could be a new grandma in just a couple of weeks.

Wow, you had nice blue skies! We only had partly sunny. But the mountain was out and beautiful!

Your quilt looks wonderful! I'm sure Sunflower will love it! Doesn't it feel good to have it done?!

Glad to hear your DD is holding on and doing well. I'm sympathizing with her...it's gotta be tough for her. I remember that wanting it over feeling. But afterwards she is gonna be one busy mama!
