Out of the closet and finished!  I don't know how long this lingered in the UFO pile but it is out and finished.  YAY!  My son's dog is visiting today and could not figure why I would spread the quilt in the driveway.

While this was in the washer I pulled the next UFO out of the closet.  I have been reading Angela Walter's books and am using these projects as quilting samplers.

I am linking this up to Amanda Jean's 'finish it up Friday'

climbing out

I've been in a bit of a funk for awhile now.  Haven't been keeping up with the blogs I love to read and certainly have not been blogging.  I'm figuring the only way to get out of the funk is to climb out, so I am starting to get back into a routine.
This is  a quilt I made for my nephew.  I saw a pic of a similar one somewhere and figured I would do some applique.  Generally I don't like applique but this was just circles and it was fun to do something different (not that I am lazy and didn't want to piece them!)  The orange circle doesn't show well in the photo.  It really does have dimension and has some fun quilting in it.  A plus was he loves it and now my other nephews want their own quilts.  One of them even wants to be hands on for his.  That will be really fun.

I have been sewing and started and finished several projects that of course I didn't take pictures of. I got seven quilts in the mail to the Sandy disaster relief, that felt good.  A couple of them were new finishes and several were UFO's that I hauled out and finished.

Now I am working on cleaning some of the UFO's out of my closet.  Then I can start on my stash.
