TaDah the Top is finally done.


This is what I ended up doing on Saturday. Apple Juice and more Apple Juice. My back is still killing me. "The old gray mare aint what she used to be."

So I had to put the blocks together last night. I thought I was short blocks and was about to abandon the project for another day but Barb wouldn't let me quit.


So tonight we were on a messenger call and every time she didn't hear the sewing machine she would get me back on track(what a slave driver). It is so easy to get side tracked, the internet calls, I start looking for patterns, food breaks, and potty stops. But I finished, well except for the border and I will have to think on it for a bit and decide what I want to do. I love it when I get done.

I can breathe a sigh of relief and start a new project. That's the beauty of quilting. There is always another one on my mind. You gotta love it.
