a finish

I finished 4 wheelchair quilts. They went to some handicapped children at a local school. It's a good feeling.

This is a very rare occurance in house of ragdoll. Maggie, after 4 years, still hates, somewhat tolerates Frankie. They were engrossed with a bird up in the gutter. She was willing to let bygones be begones and not hiss or smack him as she usually does if come within a hundred few feet of him.

I finally finished a quilt on my ufo challenge list. This is my second year working the list. I gave this one to my friend, Erin.....it was supposed to be a gift for her 50th birthday. That was 5 years ago. She didn't care....she loved it and that made me happy.

I finally realized my stumbling block with getting my quilts quilted. I told myself I did not like stippling and because I was not willing to work through that, I never finished any quilts. I am happy to say, I have gotten over that silly notion and I am quilting at my skill level and letting myself enjoy it!

I had a lot of help with the binding this morning.....she stayed the whole time, happily purring away.
