First quilt of the new year!

Today I got this quilt loaded on the machine and quilted. It is going to the Project Linus contest at the sewing store. The contest ends February 18th. I know my chances are slim to win the new machine but it is fun to make baby quilts. They are quick and easy. If I try something new and don't like it, it doesn't take that long to finish! I also loaded the hot pink top onto the machine and got the backing pieced for it. I am hoping to get that one quilted tomorrow. Then maybe I can whip out a couple more tops before February 18th.

I have given up hope of getting the house perfectly clean while everyone is home from school. Maddie goes back on Thursday and DH starts again on Monday. He has been home for a month. The classes he teaches (architecture) do not have final exams, so when classes are over, he's done. So he has been home since December 6th, asking me "what's for lunch?". Go open the frig and see what you can find! I do enjoy having him around more than usual but I am ready for a little quiet time!

Time for bed!

I like the wide strip in the middle which gives this a different look. TATW is one of my favourite patterns. I'm enjoying more stitching time in school holidays too. I actually cooked a meal last night - first since Christmas LOL.

My, haven't you been busy! I have tried calling, but I think the cell phone number that is in my cell phone, isn't right. I loved the fabrics- I shopped at HL, yesterday, myself- got you a couple fabrics. Love ya! Nines
