Done and Gone!

I quilted it.  I delivered it.  I’m done and it’s gone and  this one I won’t miss!

IMG_0012I did simple free motion meander quilting on it just to get it done.  I think the quilting ‘softened’ the appearance a bit, but this just is something I won’t do again – work with all solid fabrics. 

My sister and her significant other will be here Friday evening and I’m really looking forward to spending some time with them.  Unfortunately, it’s only 3 days and I haven’t seen them in 3 years.  I normally do ‘fall cleaning’ just before Thanksgiving but decided to get it done earlier with having the company. My hubby has a mineral (rock) collection in a glass display case and I know it’s probably been a couple years since he cleaned it.  I finally couldn’t stand it anymore and spent time taking all specimens out and dusting with a brush and of course cleaning all the glass.  Last night I woke up with a stuffy nose and this morning is a cough.  Please let it be just a reaction to the dust and not a cold!  I do not want to be sick while my sister is here – more importantly I don’t want her to go home sick….

Anyway, I’m spending this week getting ready for company and yet I have several fall projects running through my head that I’d like to be working on.  Why is it when I have the time to work on something, I don’t have the ambition.  When I don’t have the time, I do have the ambition.  Must be  psychological Smile

Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning as fall as I am.

Done and Gone!! Woohoo!! I'm not that fond of solid colors either - so I know what you mean - ;))

Getting ready for company is a pain - but having the company is worth it. Hope you have s nice visit with your sister - and that your stuffy nose clears up soon - ;))

CONGRATS! on a great finish - WooHoo!!! I know how great it feels to finish 'one of those' projects that you have to beat yourself up to get to it everyday, not FUN but sooo rewarding when it's 'done and gone' ;-)

Hope you didn't get a cold - I think I may have done the same thing only I did get the cold. Keep taking cold meds so I can quilt. Good thing these quilts need to be laundered prior to shipping or I'd be sending this virus around the country!

Hope you have a wonderful time w/family visit - no one deserves it more than you, Miss Katie ;-)
