my little window quilt finished

Finished this last night. These are so fun to machine quilt. They only take a little over a hour to machine quilt and another half hour to put the binding on. 

I put this piece down the middle as I didn't have any binding left for this quilt and I wanted to have something to tie it into the colour's. I tried it once before and didn't have much luck with it. This one turned out so much better. You always learn from the first one. Another happy finish.

My goal this week is to finish a quilt along that I started last year with Amira from Under the mushroom cap. And last night I cut out another tree skirt that I made a while ago. So if I finish these two it will be a good week. Also my grand daughter Sara would like me to make her a doll out fit so I promised I would have an outfit done by next weekend when she came down again. So looks like another busy week.

The first weekend babysitting. A very busy time. My husband left at 7:30 yesterday to take Sara to play her violin for 8:00 to 11:00 for a pancake breakfast, then take our other grand daughter to basketball for 12:00 and then again at 4:30. They never got home until 7:45. I stayed home and kept the two boys. They both spent the night. So I am sitting here with my feet up which are sore resting. Looking forward to bed tonight. There are three kids here tonight. My son and his wife are enjoying their trip to New Orleans and left for a cruise today. They will be back a week from tomorrow.. I am also babysitting their dog Jake, a black lab. We have been going for two walks a day so I better be down on the scales this week. So have a good evening.
