Sewing Day!

My friend Kim was in town this past weekend, so I went over to visit her with my sewing machine.

I helped her finish a quilt top for her youngest daughter:


These photos, taken with my phone, don't really show off the vibrant colours. That first border is lime green!


I also worked on some more Bow Tie blocks.


My container is slowly filling up... I have 108 blocks completed so far.


In other news, I finished my master's course! Hurray! I submitted my final paper last night. I hope we get our marks back by the end of the week. I have ONE course left in this degree. One! I am registered for that last course this fall.

Now I have to get on with the school work I brought home...only two more weeks until I go back to work :(

Think of all the sewing you'll get done when you finish your degree! I can't believe you have all those bow-tie blocks done -- you're speedy! Looks like you had a good time with your quilting friend -- very cute quilt she's making!

I think the flowers on that quilt really make it special. Great work on the Masters too.
