A Clean Room and a Finish


I did a little cleaning up of my room today, which was way overdo. I tend to pile stuff up on top of the books in the corner so that got all wiped down and organized again. I hung all my scissors up and put all the rulers in the stand...then I mopped the floor and emptied the garbage. When I got done I didn't really want to make a mess but do you see that little pile of fabric on my cutting board? Well, those 2 fabrics were the borders for the quilt I showed in my last post. They came late in the week and were just crying out for me to cut into them...so I did, and here's what came of it.



This quilt is called "A Piece of Cake" and as much as I liked it on Tuesday when I finished laying out the rows, I LOVE it even more today with the 2 borders on it!!!




I also spent some time this morning before I got to sewing, making up a couple of kits of quilt tops to take to Indiana with me on May 11th....It's going to take every ounce of patience NOT to open one of the ziploc bags and start assembling one of them but I realize then I'd have to make more kits so in the meantime, I have a couple of embroidery projects to work on and 2 tops to bind so I'll stick to working on them....


How's your Sunday been?
