It's another UFO Weekend.  Yeah!!!!!!

Today I'm working on finishing the Twister Tablerunner  via meachine.  Which it's much to do, slap a back on it, ditch-stitch the border, throw the binding on and call it done.  LOL

My Other project is my version of "free-motion quilting" which is by hand LOL. I'm doing on "Sleeping Cats".  I came up with a super cute way to do the border with a bit of Tongue in Cheek.  I'm hoping to get as close to done is possible by Feb. 11 as it is entered in an UFO Challenge Contest  by "Quilting Is Murder" see info. here:

Mine is the picture Of the cat blocks and I made it easy to find for it is under the name "Quercus Rubra 1".  So I will keep everyone update of my progress. And maybe with some ballot stuffing from my quilty Friends, as someone said in chat last night; I can make it to the next round and win.   I would be a great St. Valentine's day Gift for sure!  So cross your fingers and toes for me y'all!!

Well I'm Off and running, had homemade "Egg McMuffins" and coffee for breakfast and I'm going to start the day with some hand stitching just to change things up abit. 

Hope you will join me this week  and of course we LOVE eye-candy!!!

And here is our funny song of the day.....

I'm about to get started on my QU class project. We took Penny to the vet for her annual checkup this morning, then I got sheets changed and laundry started, then we got our chicken & dumplings going in the crock pot for dinner, then it was lunchtime! Now I plan to spend the rest of the weekend sewing!

Tricia, I probably just don't know where to look, but I didn't see your quilt when I clicked on the link. So...can't wait to see pics here!

I haven't done anything crafty. Well, I did go to Staples and get my orchid line drawing blown up. I was going to make the 8 x 11 size I drew from the picture then decided I wanted it bigger. I hope I feel like working on it tomorrow.

We went to Play it Again Sports and got me a new excercise bike. The one I already had was a recumbent one and it just didn't feel comfortable riding in that position, so we got a Schwinn upright one today. It's even got a little ledge to put a book on while you ride! Now I just have to get on it and use it.

Tricia-
Love the song.... thanks for the inspiration-- I finished the quilt top that I had started last weekend.
Well, that is the blocks were from a "fair and square" group a couple years ago, so sthey were dodne, and I knew what I wanted to do with them.
Had the fabric sitting there taking up space. The local shop hosted a sit and sew for the F&S group, so I decided to pull out my blocks from that swap and get moving!!

Now I need the backing, and get it quilted!!
Whooohooo!!

Midge W

P.S. having another one of these weekends soon??

Okay y'all I have pictures for ya from this weekends work. The first group is from the "Double Twist" table runner from the "Let's Twist" book.  

The last couple shots are of the "Sleeping Cats" that I have entered in that UFO Challenge Contest. There is a little bit left to do above the cat in the corner.  That is all by hand and I'll finish that up tonight and then start with the cats in the center with some black floss. 

So I'm just giving a sneal peek for now for this old UFO. And soon it will be off my UFO list. Yeah!!!

But I'm off & running for now, so ttfn from the Guilty Quilter and Her Adopted Scraps,

Tricia
