I finished Margaret's Lone Star quilt yesterday & delivered it to her today. I'm sorry to say I didn't get a picture of it finished, maybe she'll send me one when she has the binding done so I can post it on my web page. She said she was very happy with the quilting, & even her husband thought it was good, so I guess I passed.
We did a lot of running around today, groceries, banking, errands, the usual Friday stuff. We got home around 4pm, & I decided I'd better get the little neck purse done that I had to make for the next teacher coming to the ALCQ guild in September. I made it pretty plain, a tone on tone black print, & black cording.
One glass bead for the closure.
I've got my bags packed ready to leave for Michigan on Sunday. My 1st ever, quilt customer Dori called yesterday & has another quilt top ready for me to quilt when I get back home from Michigan. I've done 5 for her now. I called the hospital & signed up for some time to work starting back Sept. 22nd, so at least I'll be making some money again. It's been nice having plenty of time since I've been off, but no money is no fun either!

Tomorrow will be a bread baking & cooking ahead day so my DH doesn't starve to death while I'm away! Actually, I'm sure he wouldn't starve, but he'd be living on pizza & Subway. He doesn't cook much, (except yummy soup in the winter).

The purse is beautiful. I love it!

I was thinking if I ever get my birdhouse blocks from Alaska together, I would have you quilt them. That way they would have been made in Alaska and Florida, assembled in Florida, and quilted in Alaska. How fun is that?
