Two more days of being productive before holidays!

I took Mr. Her's advice and put the blue as the binding.  It looks great!!

I found something that Mr. Her needs: 

You have to admit, it's pretty cool!!

I finished the top of the ballerina quilt:
I left this on our bed because I had to go golfing.  Mr. Me didn't even complain so I might be able to keep it on our bed!!  This is another one I want to finish when I come to visit!!  I'm planning on coming up middle of  August.

I finished all the baby blankets for Carrie and Brad.  The material that Carrie picked out is so cute!!  I love the birds and elephants. 

I ran down to Noonan and picked up more material.  I have a slight obsession with Basic Grey - Grunge.  I'm not sure I bought enough!!

I found a couple of patterns to use all of this in but now I need the lighter colours for each of the bright colours.

I bought a range of blues for a Norther Lights quilt for Mr. ME's Mom.  Not sure when we are going to give it to her.  

It won't be for a while because I need to find material for Mr. ME's Dad.  I'm searching for some John Deere material.  Something not too busy or kid-ish.  I think I'm going to make his a Northern Lights too.

My goal today is to exercise, do laundry, start packing, and quilting 2 quilts!!  I think I can do this because I'm going to do straight lines on one of the quilts and a meandering on the other.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Hello, This is attempt number three at commenting. The i-pad and I are not being friends right now so we'll see if the laptop and I will do better. Mr. Her made a good choice for the binding for Northern Lights, it looks all ready for the couch. The Darth fire sculpture? looks pretty neat, where did you find it? The ballerina top looks great and huge. Do you have a back picked out or is that something you're hoping to find on your trip. I'm smiling about your grunge addiction. Looks like you should have enough for another project (or two). Good luck with the John Deere fabric- sometimes Fabricland has some here in town. The other option would be to go with the John Deere green and the bright accent yellow of the tractors. I have an idea from my pin board that I;ll post that I think would look great in those two colours. So did you get everything from your goals done today? I'll await your answer as I go and start packing. Her

  2. Actually, I'll just send you the pin.
