Wow! It's sure gotten cold outside! At least my internal battle with the "cold" virus seems to be over, and I've been sewing up a storm the last couple of days. I have gotten the whole memory quilt pieced, and ran to Michaels today with my coupon to get some batting to quilt it...machine quilting that is! It is a small crib size/wall hanging quilt so it shouldn't take too long to finish. I also pulled out a pair of stitching pieces to finally finish into pillows...poor things had to wait 5 years! They are the Dog Lovers Heart and Cat Lovers Heart from Sekas & Co.
The memory quilt is a gift for long-time friends of DH's family who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year. I started it late last summer so it may turn out to be a 51st anniversary gift! I really have to be in the mood to sew on the machine (ie. not be tired or distracted) so once the worse of my cold was past, and sleep was caught up on, that quilt seemed to piece itself! Hopefully it will finally be done by the weekend, and I can check one WiP off the list for the year! I'm just about done with the Dream Tree (four letters and the beads) and then I will allow myself to get back to work on Holland Landscapes...part 9 just came out, and I'm still working on part 6!
