Happy Old Stuff Day! Really, it's a holiday. But I'm not celebrating old stuff nearly as much as NEW stuff today. Namely a NEW quilt top! Yes, I finished the quilt top. Well, ok, it's not totally finished. But the trickier piecing part is done. I do have strips to sew around the edges but that ought to be easy. (knock on wood) I did quite a lot of seam picking out today, though. Ugh. I had so much trouble with the unit 3 (10 of them, I think). I couldn't seem to put them together the right way. I don't know what was up with that. And then I restitched some seams that I just wasn't happy with. As I was pressing them I looked at them and just wasn't satisfied so I took them out and did them over. I'm very happy with how it turned out. One of my better quilts with many of the corners matching up and all. So, are you dying to see it? Ok, here it is...
And here is my DD laying on it. She's been asking me over and over, "Is it done, yet?" And she keeps telling me to hurry up. I thought that I had gone pretty fast but not fast enough for her!
Today was very windy. DS was anxious to try out his new skate shoes after school but it was so yucky out there that he didn't get to. Maybe tomorrow. My silly dog is very afraid of the wind. He was anxious all day, barking at the wind, and DID NOT want to go out. I was afraid he'd pee in the house since he wasn't about to go out. Lucky for him he managed to hold it. And then I really freaked him out when I put his blanket in the wash. He's got issues. Anyway, that's about all for today. Talk atcha later!

Good job! That was really fast, considering you picked things out and did them over.
