The good, the bad, the in progress

The good - yesterday my roll of batting was sitting by my front door! I wouldn't want to run out and have that slow me down! I buy the 90" wide x 40 yard bolt. This seems like a lot of batting, but if I were to guess I would say this is my 6th or 7th roll I have bought. I got it from JoAnn's at 50% off, free shipping, and I had a gift card my brother and his wife had sent me which helped out the cost.

More good - I am stocked up with Mike's. I didn't know it was sold in 24 oz cans until this past weekend.

And even more good - I got the label sewn on a baby quilt for my sister. The quilt is for her dentist's 12 week old baby girl. This is the quilt she picked out. The quilt is in the mail and on it's way to Georgia.

The bad - it was changing from my sunglasses to my regular glasses and the temple broke. I have an old pair of glasses and the prescriptions are very close, but just enough different that yesterday afternoon I was getting a headache and nauseous. I think I am use to the change today and they are not bothering me too much. The replacement part might be in on Friday so I can go get my glasses fixed on Saturday.

The in progress - I decided I needed to get a few tops made for Vicki at Colorways by Vicki Welsh. Vicki quilts the tops and the quilts go to veterans. I am using those strips hanging on my design wall which are also on my UFO list. The centers will be leftover pieces and parts. Here is the first top started.

Ooh, I really like how those leftovers inside the gray strips looks!

You are rolling along there. Frank has that glasses problem from time to time
