To get there - I finished the machine quilting on the maple leaf quilt and machine stitched the binding to the top. I plan to hand quilt some maple leaves in the plain tan and black border and then hand stitch the green binding to the back. I did a stipple in the tan and black parts in the center and outlined all the leaves. I also did a stipple in the leaf border and outlined the center border with the walking foot.
I picked up the Little T quilt to practice a bit and have been putting some stitches in the last couple of days. Time to stitch inside the T's and then onto the borders. I'll have to pull the pins and give the borders a press before I start on them.
I use my phone to take pictures and it has started to rebel and pop out of the photo without taking anything. Yes, I downloaded them all and deleted from my phone but it is still acting up. I've had it for a couple of years and am due for a new one.... which I just had Greg order for me today. Arrgghhh, I really hate change. I had my previous cell phone for 5 and 8 years before getting something new. Hopefully the new phone will behave - take my pictures and stop deleting all my contacts for a few days and then have them show up again.
I just spent 2.5 hours picking up the play room. It still needs a vacuum but I am DONE! (1.5 black trash bags full; recycle bin is full; one laundry basket has donate jackets, shoes and toys - more will be added when the kids are not home!) The kids are in there playing school - Aidan is teaching Emily right now working on her spelling words. I think I'll put in a few slow stitches while no one is yelling. Lets hope the playroom is how I left it when the kids are done playing in there. It is so nice to see there is a floor in there.
I'll deal with the rest of the house tomorrow =) Time for some relaxing stitching before I have to make dinner. Taco's tonight (Aidan's favorite).
