Progress


I finished the applique handwork and added the final borders on the Jill Finley quilt.  It is now a flimsy hanging in the closet and waiting its turn for quilting.

Cutting continues on the sashings for the Jane Stickle quilt and I will probably start stitching them next week.  I’m not sure why I've dragged me feet on this unless it’s because I’m nervous to see what the blocks will look like together.



We will be celebrating a grandson’s belated birthday Sunday.  I spent the morning making chocolate chip cookies.  I have it on good authority that he doesn't like chocolate chip cookies, he loves them.  It has been a long time since I baked cookies and the house smells wonderful.
