Check Mate

I have been working like crazy to finish the checkerboard border on the Thimblecreek Quilt Pumpkin pattern.

Why do things take so much longer than I think they will? One problem I had was I could not find my solid black fabric. I must have searched for it for at least a half hour and finally found it – thank goodness. I think this means I need to get a little more organized, my room and fabric that I’ve pulled out lately needs to be refilled and put away!

Saturday my sweet mom turned 78, so we had a little family gathering on Sunday at Pappadeaux’s. We had a great time, it was nice to gather and celebrate.

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,

I enjoy piecing quilts and getting to know people, as well as sharing the information I have on sewing. I love the sense of accomplishment once I'm finished.
