I so much wanted to finish a UFT today. It's been a LONG time since I could cross another UFT off my list. The last one I crossed off was Broken Dishes, which didn't count as much in my mind since I'd started that quilt this year. As usual, however, things took longer than I thought they would - things called pinwheels and flying geese. So in spite of the fact that I read no blogs today and spent almost no time on the computer, I'm one border shy of finishing. That's OK, I can be satisfied with that. The last border is a Plain Jane border - to steal the term from my pre-1830's medallion instructor. It's supposed to be the same fabric as the pinwheels but I don't have nearly enough left. Tomorrow I'll dig through my stash and find something else suitable - I know there's something there I can use. So tomorrow night I should be able to cross this one off the list.
I got in another customer quilt - a small one that is to have an all-over pattern. I thought I'd get it done today but when I got up I knew I needed today for myself. We had a marvelous time with all our kids yesterday - it was so great to see them together - and it left no time for sewing. The German chocolate cake was marvelous as was the dinner - if I do say so myself. Next weekend will be a completely quilty weekend, including the Northwest Medical Teams Quilt Auction starting at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday. I'll looking forward to that. It's always great fun, even though the bidding always goes higher than our budget will allow.
