Mystery Revealed

My friend Dorothy Young from apocketfullofmysteries just hosted a new mystery. She asked me to be a tester. The mystery was hosted on Christmas and has been revealed so I can show mine now.

3 Bound

I have 3 of the 5 charity quilts done, minus the label. One more quilted waiting to be bound. One basted. I will then add the labels, snip threads, give them a good going over to make sure there aren't any loose threads or other issues, wash them, pack them and ship them. I haven't been this productive quilty wise in a long time,

Design Pile Monday
I sewed and sewed all weekend. I started out with 2 unquilted tops for Quilts for Kids and finished last night with 4 quilted tops and 1 ready to be basted top. On the first four I still have to do a little work on the borders but I am quite proud of my accomplishment. Now to bind these babies!
Go checkout Judy L's blog to see what everyone else is doing for Design Wall Monday.

Freeze Frame Fourth Border



























Duke Sleeping

He is such a cute sleeper. He lays that head back, falls asleep, goes slack jaw and snores!

You Never Know Where the Next Hug Will Come From

We took our pup to the vet to get his shots. When we got there we were greeted by Bart. The vet's 10 month old "house" cat. He is a cute yellow tabby and I just love him. Apparently Bart loves small dogs. When he saw dh holding Duke, the puppy, on his shoulder he proceeded to climb my dh and nestle in on his shoulder between dh's head and the puppy. I was laughing since my hubby isn't a cat fan. We took the cat off hubby and were taken back to be seen by the vet.

When our appointment was over we came out to pay etc and while we were waiting this is what ensued....




















Design Wall




Trying to catch up on some things. Here is what I have been working on. I am piecing the 4th border now and am almost done!

Monroe Stash and a Late Stash Report

I bought a yard of puppy paw prints in black and white. I need to check myself as I have bought several dog related black and white pieces. Need to not overbuy.

I am in the hole -110.8 yards

Here is a pic of my Monroe stash.





















I bought quite a bit of this while over here. There are at least 15 yards not in the pic. I am working with it on current projects. See all that Halloween on the bolt?? GULP!

I am sewing as fast as I can!!
