Lots of Finishes.........

School is fast coming to an end for this school year.   Doesn't seem possible that there are less than 3 weeks left and of course things are starting to come fast and furiously.....including  the first of my final exams this week (seniors are out next week).  At least I won't have to grade these because they are on the computer and automatically done.  =)

As for sewing.....This past week / weekend was focused on getting commissioned stuff done so that I can get it out of here and paid for.

The Green and Cream quilt has been totally finished and even named - something I rarely do.    Because of a comment that the lady who is buying it said, it is named "Springtime in Bloom".

Next finished was the final set of towels for a grad gift.   That has already been mailed off to my adopted niece.

From the leftover strip set used on the bath towel, I made a mug rug.   It'll end up on sale at some point.

The blanks for the 4 leather knife sheaths that I'm working on have all been cut out and stained.   Am waiting for the bottle of finish coat to arrive so that I can seal them.  That should arrive tomorrow or Wed. if I have to pick it up at UPS.  Once the finish has been applied and dried then I can sew them together.   That should be done before this coming weekend is over.

I also managed to get two more scrub tops finished up.   Next up more of them!

And my fun right now is planning out a 3-wk trip that will take me to Indiana, Tennessee (gonna be visiting Susan!) and then down to the Dallas TX area.  Lots going on in this trip, and will write more about what I'll be doing as the trip happens.

Gratitudes:
1. Unexpected phone calls with promising topics

2. God's provisions for all my needs.

That name is perfect for the quilt! I love how it turned out. I'm so glad it's going to someone you know. The rest of your projects are great. Hope your leather sealant comes soon!
