Good Monday Morning!
I have many irons in the fire at the moment so I thought I'd do an update on a couple of things.
I'm trying to put in a little quicting each day on my Olympic Star quilt. I love the way the quilting is looking so far.
Here are the blocks I have finished so far for the doll quilt along, Strawberry fields on Lori's blog.
I have finally figured out a border solution that I like for this quilt, which I started late last year. Sorry, the colors are hard to read, I'll take another photo when I finish the borders. It's hard to catch the right light in the morning in the sewing room because it's on the west side of the house.
When I went to the quilt show about a week ago, my friend Susan bought a pattern for a tote bag. Pauline and I jumped on the idea and we had a sew day last week to get started.
And here is my new tote bag.

Here is a close up. I'm using neutral tans, which I pieced together.
Pauline is using gorgeous batiks and Susan is using a beautiful green fabric. They are all very different, so stay tuned to see more on this.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, I hope you had a nice day. I received these beautiful caladiums from my kids. Pink and Green? my favorite!
Finally, while coco was busy elsewhere, Luna (the one gold eyed cat) decided to visit me in the sewing room and use coco's bed.
