Making progress....

Over the weekend I was able to get the commissioned heart quilt fully quilted.  It took a while to do because I had to not only smooth out the backing and re-pin as I went, but also had to add on a band at one end thanks to having turned the top the wrong way.  =(  

Here's pic of the back where you can see the band I added in.   The fabric was a leftover from another project, by someone, but I do't remember buying it.   Might have gotten it in a remnant bag.

I also got the binding sewn down on the origami table runner.  And after looking at the pic, am thinking I need to do some more quilting in the white because I don't like how it looks in the picture.

I also got a test block made for my next magazine submission completed.  Now to make the actual block for submission.   But first need to decide on what fabrics I want to use....lol.....

Finally I sorted through two more totes of fabrics and miscellaneous stuff.  Have another pile of fabric to measure and then donate.  And I downsized two totes of Christmas decorations into one tote leaving me with a stack to donate or sell.   Bummer is that I can't find the replacement nativity set that I am supposed to have (bought it after the one I'd had for over 20 yrs vanished when I moved from TX to IN & yrs ago).   Maybe I should make myself a wall-hanging nativity and be done with it. (I do have 3 appliques and a panel or two for nativities.......maybe it's time to use one of them.)

Gratitudes:
1. My foot is feeling better (altho not fully 100% yet) after hurting for over a week)

2. Nice warm days
