Bought some fabric

I was given some gift cards so I spent some of the money on fabric. All of it was on sale so I got a lot for my bucks! The skull fabric - 7 yards - was only $3.99 on clearance from Hancock's of Paducah. I will use that for backing on a Harley quilt.

Double rainbow

I spent last evening doing odds and ends around the house so there was no progress on the quilt. I did forget to post the double rainbow I saw last Friday on my way home from work. It was pretty cool.

Made great progress!

I did not reroof the mailbox or tile the driveway this weekend Swooze. I spent the weekend quilting on Sammy's quilt and am now 40% done! Machine quilting is hard work and I was tired, but I am happy with the amount I got done. I outlined the area that is now done.
That middle row is going to be the hardest to quilt so that will slow me down a bit.

Yeah it is Friday!

I buckled down last night and got another t-shirt quilted. It was not a big on, but there was a lot of detail stitching I wanted to do. I am now 13% done with the quilting.

I have no big plans for the weekend. I think I will stay inside and get some quilting done. Have a great weekend!

Double digits!

I now am in double digits for the percentage quilted for Sammy's quilt. I am at 12% now with getting this yellow t-shirt quilted.

This is what the back looks like

Winter showed up yesterday. By this morning we had an inch of snow. Not much, but this is the first time this season the roads stayed covered. My trip to work is on back roads and there was one road that was a bit dicey. I am sure will more traffic on that road it will be much better going home.

A bit more progress

I get home from work, sit down for a minute and next thing I know and hour and a half has blown by! I didn't get out of work until a bit later than usual - I was working on hour ten. I did get this small extra piece I needed to add for some length

and I got the dark gray shirt done before I went to work this morning.

I am now 8.5% done with the quilting. I have big plans to quilt as soon as I get home tonight and get into double digits for the amount done.

T-shirt quilt progress, etc.

I got a bit more quilting done. I got the shirt that said SENIORS done so I am now 6.8% done. It wasn't much, but it is better than a stick in the eye! LOL!!

I then sewed the button on my jacket that came off yesterday. This is big for me, because the last button that fell off this jacket - which I sewed on during the holidays - it took me 2 years to get around to sewing it back on!

I also made a couple of labels for quilts. I sewed one on last night to a girl quilt. This quilt is for the 3 year old niece that one of the ladies I work with is adopting.

The other label is for a quilt I gave someone for Christmas and didn't have time to put a label on it. She is bringing the quilt to work so I will spend 5 minutes stitching it on. I brought thread, pins, a needle, and my pair of very sharp scissors!
