Today I'm on my way back to the East Coast.  I'll be spending a few days with my daughter Karen before finally making my way home.  The nearly three weeks spent with Sandra just flew by.  We did all kinds of sewing.  I'm so happy to have a bunch of UFOs cleared out of my sewing stack!  Sandra finds ways to finish tops and her stash keeps me out of my purse while making room for her to store new treasures.  Here's what I left for Kerry to quilt and one project for Sandra to finish (I did get it half the way assembled). 

There were not one or two but five table runners.  The first one was going to be the green with gold print, notice the folded over corner.  When the back of the fabric showed itself next to the pieced top there was a change.  The solid green became the "right side" to use.  Wonder what the binding will end up on this one.  All have a bit of the back fabric left that can be used for binding.

Table runner two

Table runner three

Table runner four

Table runner five in work

The next two quilts are for one of the charities I support.  The nurse project started from a panel.  The nurses, both male and female are done so well.  A little bit of black and white polka dot works well anywhere.

Lastly the largest of my projects is a gift for a family member.  Of course I can't reveal it quite yet...soon.

 I'm already thinking of what UFOs can be dug out of my sewing room for next year!  Have a bright and beautiful day.

It's that time of year for the Sunshine Quilting Retreat that is in Temecula, CA.  My daughter treats me to this event that I love a bunch.  There are 23 other quilters to join us starting Thursday.  But first...

We are headed to Pechanga for a few tugs on the slot machines and some...

Wish me luck!

I'll be sharing my projects with you next week.  Do come back and check out what I have accomplished.
