My knee has been in a bad way for a couple of weeks,
so I have tried to let it rest, which allowed me to finish up a couple of projects.

My mother sent this little table cloth home with me.  
It just needed one corner done, and then I finished off with some binding.
I have never done that before, and may never do it again.

As I was putting this block of the month together,
I got a phone call asking me if I wanted to another one this year.
"Ummm, I don't think so, but thanks for thinking of me."

A few six years ago, I decided to make a quilt for each of my husbands siblings.
I am on sibling # 6, with one more to go.
They all didn't get a quilt, some got table runners, 
and M & M didn't get one, because M makes the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen.
But this one is done and ready for the mail. 

And last, but not least, I got these little mittens started.
I am excited to finish this little project.

The good news is that I went to the doctor 
and he patched me up and my knee no longer needs to rest.
It is a good thing, because I was running out of projects to finish.

The Basket Quilt is Done!!!!!!

I got this little project cut out, 
but I am going to have to get some more heat-n-bond
before I can start.

I am finally done with the baskets.
They make me happy.

I gave every basket a flower.

I am going to buy me some of these labels for it.
In fact, I want to give them to all my quilting buddies.

Nap Time

I finished up this quilt. 
It is big enough for a year.

And then there was the night before I had to send my grand daughter her birthday present.
I had been planning on sending her a pink bag for a couple months,
so I am not sure why I waited until the last minute,
but I did.

Love using pink!

Have you ever been in the middle of quilt and thought
"Holy Cow! This thing may never fit together!"
Because, after all, quilts are like puzzles.

Well that is how I felt about this,
with pieces of quilt everywhere.
I was happy that the bottom section worked,
maybe the rest will work out too.

Minky Backs

 When I made this quilt,  I envisioned a bright pink minky back. I found the minky  (on Amazon and it is a nice minky) and t...
