Some Sewing - Finally

Well as I get used to having a job outside my home for the first time in almost ten years I'm having to learn to fit my quilting in. Consequently I go long stretches without doing anything. And then I have weekends like this past weekend. Rodger and the boys went to the annual father/son camp-out, Tasha went to a friend's house and I was home alone! So I got some sewing done.

The first thing I did was finish up the round robin swap. This is the last swap project I have left. I can't post a picture of that until it is returned to its owner - but I really think she's going to be happy.

The next thing I did was add a row to my round robin. I wanted it a little bit bigger so I added a piano key border.

And then I finished up my nine-patch top. I saw a picture of a quilt similar to this on webshots and just loved it. I do wish I would have made my blocks a little smaller - they are 8 inch blocks. But otherwise I love it.

Before I go I wanted to post another picture of Thunder. He's almost 5 months old now and I just love this picture. Tasha took it. She's becoming quite the photographer - getting plenty of practice taking pictures of Thunder.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
