My youngest niece

My youngest niece will be here Friday night with her Mom and Dad. She is almost nine. She wants to make a quilt. So between work and school, we are going to make a quilt. I found the cutest Debbie Mumm cat fabric that I am going to use like a cheater quilt and the greatest cat head fabric for the border. I have to go to the LQS on my lunch today to get some black and white for inner borders. Hopefully, we can get this done during the week she is here.

National Day of Quilting

National Day of Quilting has mostly been all day sleeping for me. Long work and school hours have caught up with me. However, now I have caught up on my sleep, I wanted to make a new block today in honor of National Day of Quilting. I had to some some green in for St Patrick's Day. Nothing like two celebrations in one. Of course, Bea is always right in the middle of it. These fabrics are ones that I bought in December for 40% off. I love them. Looks like this will be Bea's Christmas quilt. I hope to get a few more made before I start working on the term paper that I need to get done this weekend.

I am working on finishing the binding for this Can't Cut It Up quilt. When I get a new pattern I try to make more than one to get the hang of it. I have another one posted earlier. I still have a pink one that needs to be sent to the quilter. Hopefully, I will be able to have that quilted in the next couple of months. This may be for my spare bedroom. The pink one will actually be the first quilt that I have made that will actually be for my bed.

Here is the ring bearers pillow that I am working on. I am still adding beads. It is still about 3 weeks away from being finished but the wedding is not until May and my goal is to be finished the middle of April. It is also giving me ideas to design a very special pillow for my niece that is getting married May 2008. Her pillow will have to be over the top. If anyone has any great idea, please share!!!
Back to school this week. Am ready to get started. The more I attend classes then the closer I become to finishing. The fact that I might be able to graduate in December inspires me. I am tired. I am ready to be done.
Hope everyone has a great week and get's what you want accomplised!!!

Ring Bearers Pillow

Just a quick check in. I have been a slug this week since I have a week break from school. Finals were last week and I am excited to say that I earned an "A" in Managerial Accounting and in Investments. Registered for the next term that starts next week. I will be taking Human Resources Management and Strategic Management. In speaking with my advisor it is possible that I may be able to graduate in December. I have been on cloud 9 ever since. I am really tired of really gets in the way of sewing.
This week I have been working on a ring bearers pillow. Will post a picture when it is completed. I have forgotten how much I really enjoy cross stitch. Went to the cross stictch shop last week and renewed old acquaintances. I am going to have to do some more stitching I can already tell. Besides I bought a new Just Nan snowman pattern that I am just dying to start. I am excited about starting the ring bearers pillow. The wedding is not until May and I am over half way done. This will be a first! Too many times I have been making the pillow right up until the wedding rehearsal. Maybe I am getting too old to procrastinate that much.
Nothing quilty going on. Should be working on My Blue Heaven but I have stalled. Hope that you are having a good week.
