Nothing quilty to show

Warning: A boring no pictures to show. I am just too lazy to get the camera out and hook it up. I am down to putting on the last border on my Laurel Burch quilt. I have never ripped so much in my life! I was putting on the last border and got lazy and just sewed the first side of the last border. Then the stashbusters had a thread on wavy and wonky borders when you don't do it right by measuring down the sides and the middle. And sure enough, it was wavy. I thought of the wonderful lady that does my longarm quilting and abruptly ripped it out. I can't get the umph needed to git r dun. Therefore, no pictures. I have put it aside to work on something else that I need to get done. However, only 3 small blocks done so it is not worthy of a picture yet. So have I justified no posting a picture yet.
In the meantime, one term finished and a new one started. Now down to 6 more classes after this one. I have 4 more that I will take this year and then just 2 to go until graduation on May 3rd. YEAH!!!
I have started cleaning my house. I mean really really cleaning. I have way too much clutter except in the sewing room. I need everything that I have in there. It just needs more space. So Flylady here I come. Wish me luck ya'll!

Something Finished

I have a finished flimsy!!! Is that the proper way to describe it? The top is pieced...have no idea when it will go to the quilter. I have a great feeling of accomplishment. This is my version of the Chinese Coins that I have seen on other blogs. I am calling it my version because I am not sure that it is exactly like everyone else's. The funny thing is how much I like it. I have said all along that I was doing this for the experience but these fabrics were not to my taste. They were a gift and I was using my stash. All this fabric I have had at least 4 years. However, now that it is done, I think that it is pretty. It will be interesting to see how I feel when I eventually send it out for quilting.
I wish that I knew how to place pictures on the blog. It is difficult to take out the camera and not take a picture of my baby, Bea. I added it second and it loads to the top. Not that she is not always on the top of my list but need to learn more on blogging. She is the sweetest thing. She is so tiny that I worry about her. I try to feed her up but she is not real interested in food.
Hope everyone is doing well and getting lots accomplished!!!
