Keeping with the pace .....!

It's presently raining!  What a pleasant sound!  We've needed some rain.  The lake level is way below what it should be at this time of the year.

In the mean time, I continued to keep my commitment of decreasing my numbers of UFOs.

I've been busy machine quilting, and building up a small pile!

This little stack of quilts is ready for me to hand sew the binding!

In the mean time, Civil War Melodies is hanging at Fibre Junction.

I just love how this quilt turned out.

With all of these projects on their way to being completed, I'm suddenly getting the urge to start something new! lol  So in between getting some older projects completed, I finished hand embroidering this little gem.

The pattern is called Miss Timid Valentine.  I just need to piece this little top, but not until I get those bindings stitched! lol

I best be off to tackle that stack of quilts.  I just cannot wait to show you what I've been working on!

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep well!  Cheers

Your quilt is gorgeous and I know how beautiful they are in person;) I was all set to quilt, then my machine broke, so she is being fixed, so hand quilting for now.

That quilt looks fabulous. I'll bet it feels great to reduce the number if UFOs too. Looking forward to seeing what you are working on.

Your Civil War Melodies is beyond exquisite, Carole. What a treasure that is! And I'm in L-O-V-E with your little redwork cutie.

If I lived closer, I'd come in and help you with the bindings because I too can;t wait to see what you've been working on.

Hi Carole! Glad to see your post. You are making great progress on your push to finish quilts. I've been pushing the same way - the long list of finished tops has really been bothering me. Civil War Melodies is FABULOUS! I adore those fabrics - and those colors! The embroidery is so cute. I'm glad to see you use the word "embroidery" - that's the word I grew up with and the skill I've learned. Now it is all "stitchery", which doesn't sound right to my ears.
