slowly but surely

Doesn't DD look good on Roscoe? This horse is headstrong. But, DD shows him who's boss!

I have a good friend, Vicki, that designed a label for the girl scout quilt for me. I have it ready to sew on. The binding is sewn down. The hanging sleeve is half way sewn down. So, it will be done by tomorrow. Yeah!!!

I also cleaned up the sewing area a bit. Not 100%, but better than it was.

I got the backing together on the string quilt and it is loaded on the long arm. I am using leftover pieces of batting, so I had to zig-zag them together for this quilt. That is done and they are waiting for me to quilt. This is one of my UFOs, so that will be a great one to get finished.

I have the red for the inner border picked out for Carolina Crossroads. The border on this quilt is giving me fits.

I picked out the backing for a soldier quilt, so that is ready to piece together.

I found the inner border for the Precious Moments baby quilt, and hope to get working on that one too.

I actually feel like I'm making progress. I also cleaned up my desk and it is actually wood under there. LOL Now to figure out which pens and pencils actually still work. I don't know how I collect so many, but I do.

Ah, now, that's one job I can always get sidetracked by - checking out which pens and pencils work, sharpening the pencils, lovely. And it takes my mind off the rest of the boring cleaning that needs to be done.
