Quilting Interference!

Quilting Interference!
Mondays are as Mondays are.
The to-do list was long, but I am grateful for the busy-ness of the Quiltville Store during these times.
With all that is going on in the world today, having something positive to focus my energy into makes all the difference to me.
Even mundane chores such as emptying all the waste baskets and getting the weekly trash to the curb for Tuesday’s early morning pick-up gets me up and moving around.
UPS, FedEx, USPS all do their drop off/pick up routines and I wave from a good long social distance sharing pleasantries.  These folks are at it day in, day out – the business of keeping busy keeps them moving forward too.

It was nearly mid-afternoon before I could sit and get a binding on the Nearly Lemoyne quilt. 

The soft sunlight yellow tone on tone print I had chosen for the binding is one that has been in my stash for eons.  It is perfect for this.
The quilt has a bit if yellow here, a bit there – throughout the quilt, and the yellow binding just captures all of that sunshine.
Brighter colors are what I have gravitated to this year – colors that inspire and energize.  
Binding, sleeve and label on – I switched gears.  Time for more green strings as I continue to work on THAT behind the scenes project.

She really does love to be in the absolute middle of EVERYTHING.  Before I pulled out the camera, she had her head tucked way down in and was sleeping.  You really couldn’t see her in there!

And she loves up here too?
What’s with this?
At this point I am afraid to rotate my chair to press as she may go flying.  LOL!
What would we do with out our fur babies?  How boring life would be for me!

And this girl – what??? Why?
The parrot came from Aunt Debi and Uncle Rick.  So far it has lasted more than a week, but I admit to having to do some serious surgery on its back – once there is a small hole, ALL the stuffing comes out.  All that is inside now is the squeaker – and Zoey loves it so much!
We laugh and laugh and laugh and wonder just what we would do without her.

Settling in for the evening.
My favorite part.
I love hand binding.  It is mindless, and calming.  It allows me to spend more time with the quilt.  I get to snuggle while I sew. 
And that yellow?  Happiness at the edge.
I will share a photo of the backing when the whole thing is done.  Baby cherubs are whole – and better than that, they are now GONE!  LOL!

“Just wanted to share this  pic of the table runner In all its Fall season glory.   Thanks Bonnie for your creativity and my quilting has never been better!!!! “
I love it, Lola! And that piped binding is a fantastic finish!
I also love how she made it “not so skinny” by extending the checkerboard a bit wider in the center.

This one by Susan!
Oh, I love the newsprint background!
I love all you share and felt it was time for me to also. This was a fun project.  Even made a happy little mug rug.  Thank you for your positive life lived and shared. Fondly, Susan “

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful finishes, everyone!  It has made my inbox dance with joy!
Today is an errand day.  Just a few things, and I should be back by mid afternoon to dig more into the green strings – I hope.
