A finish (almost) and a Disney afternoon.

I made the backing, pinned and did some walking foot quilting on this on Monday. I also made the binding and attached it. The rest of the week was finishing up the hand stitching on the binding.

My first almost finish for 2015. I was too tired last night to get the last side of the binding sewn down. Maybe tonight.

The reason for being too tired.... the kids had a half day of school yesterday so I took them to Magic Kingdom. They did good (and yes, all by myself Mom). We did some things they had not done yet - the train ride, saw the afternoon parade and the evening one, Country Bear Jamboree, Swiss Family tree house and the Magic Carpet ride. Throw in dinner and ice cream for dessert and some shopping by the kids and we had a full afternoon. They used their gift cards from Aunt Terri's family and Emily has Elsa (she would love Anna for her birthday?) and Aidan got Sven.

What a busy but fun day ... I'm sure it was worth it to see how happy your kiddos were. ;-) Your GNI is just fabulous ... I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I love that quilt! I'm sure the fact that it's blue certainly doesn't hurt. ha!

The quilt looks GREAT - it sparkles! Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse was always a favorite of mine - guess I'm Old School!

Busy day! Sounds like a good one though. Throw in an all-but-finish, and I'm sure you slept well!
