So, I was sewing  with a "Quilt-a-Long" (Granny Squares).... Finished the top, just need a border which will be pieced.
Anyhoo, I got all sidetracked with rearranging the back porch sewing area...One thing led to another, and I re-did the office/sewing chair. Oh, and made myself a shabby lil cork board that I'd always wanted...
I spray painted the metal parts. stapled gunned the seat fab, and slip covered the back..Whew!
Gotta make a 60th B-day quilt for hubb's friend, then, finally, I can get back to MY stuff!

Below is where I sew when the sunroom is too hot or cold!

 Oh, and readers came in the mail today! Nice & PINK!

The oldest living UFO?

3 inch squares.... really? 4 cheater corners on each 160, 3 inch square? No wonder this UFO was hidden, I mean gently tucked away for, ummm, 7 or 8 years?
I didn't finish it the way the pattern called for because I was NOT even going to do more corners...gah
It is going to a great home, my neighbor whose daughter's room is pink. So Nina, here is yo quilt, its as old as you are!
Today I'll be making some UFO pillowcases, then maybe something I want to work on for FUN!
