I’ve been madly at work trying to finish up projects for the PhD Challenge. The challenge isn’t officially over until the end of June, but we’re headed away for vacation soon, and I’d like to have these done before then. I committed to 6 projects. Well, # 5 is done!
This is a sampler of blocks used in the titles of Earlene Fowler’s books – love her books! A great project with lots of scope for learning. Here it’s draped over our sofa – but it will be living on our coffee table.
The last project is the Pumpkins and Spice quilt that Jo and I have been doing together at Cross-Border Quilters. It’s all pieced and ready for sandwiching and quilting. Plan to quilt this week, then if necessary take it with us to Alberta to do the binding.
In the meantime, we’ve been gathering together the things that we want to take to our kids in Alberta – some furniture, appliances, and a few odds and ends. DS1 is a hunter and has quite a collection of guns – so Grizz has made him a couple of gun racks:
We put the finishing touches on yesterday, and they’re ready to go. Do you see Tobin checking it out, she just has to make sure we do it right!
I just love finishes – such a great sense of accomplishment!
Happy achievements! Blessings, Peg
