More Progress (that I can't share!!)

I got February's challenge piece sandwiched, thread and design chosen, and got to work yesterday.  Right now I am taking a break, waiting for some banana bread to finish baking.  But I am more than halfway done with the largest part of the quilt!  It took some work to get the tension right on the metallic thread, but it is working well and looking great.  Next I just have to decide how to quilt the borders, and I'm good.  So I should have this ready to do the blog post ahead of time, easy.

It has been dreary and drizzly today.  Less than two weeks, then March.  If I can survive that, we should start seeing little bits of green sometime in April.  Although if I have to deal with winter, at least I have the Olympics to watch while I sew.  I love watching the figure skating!

I hope your long weekend was a good one.  Just three days of work to survive, then more marathon quilting next weekend.  I leave for Cedar City Sunday afternoon, so gotta have it all ready to go by then.  Later!

Yours sound lovely! I finished my top today, but won't be able to quilt it till next weekend. I was just thinking about thread and design.

You seem to be wishing the winter away, though..................
