I know, I should really be in bed but I was having trouble going to sleep - too much thinking going on! So instead I came to my sewing room to finish up a couple of things. But first, an recap of my day in the sewing room:
I had the first wall quilt top put together by 9 this morning and the second by 10. I think I will still add a black border on them just to frame them. That will be decided tomorrow or Friday since tomorrow may be a bit hectic. This afternoon I managed to get both of the doll quilts quilted.

I mentioned the Cathedral Window quilt that I sort of started several years ago in a previous blog. The other day after seeing a CW quilt on Flickr I decided I needed to do a little work on that. After much thought, I decided the best thing to do was rip out the little I had already done and start over. I think I will go totally hand sewn for this one. I was almost done with the ripping when I went to bed so the first thing I worked on when I got back up was that. I finished the frog stitch and got the squares repressed, ready to go soon.

After that I got the bindings on the two doll quilts - scrappy from leftover bindings from earlier projects. Now I have some hand work to do while at the doctor's office with my son on Friday.

I may try to get the borders on the wall quilts before my brother arrives next week but that might just wait until after I am home from my quilt retreat - or maybe I will take them along and get those borders on there!

Well, I think I will now be able to sleep. Good night or good morning!

I love the "I spy" idea of the quilt. Makes me want to make another baby quilt some day soon. Don't know when right now!

Isn't that the way it goes? You see what someone else is doing and think "I need to try that!" and then another project is in the works!

I have never posted but read your blog quite often. You are one busy girl. I have too many projects in the works. Need to finish before starting another one. But, I probably won't :).
