a big step done

I have been feeling under the weather the past several days-which meant I could hand quilt without feeling any guilt at letting everything else slide. Last night I put the last stitch in the hand quilting on Texas baby. Today I hope to squeeze in time to get the top trimmed and the binding machine stitched on one side. I am going to put a label on with blank spaces for name of baby receiving it, but have it stitched down on two sides with the binding. Then I can spend time tonight or over the weekend hand stitching the back side down. I will post a photo once it's completely done. I am so pleased to have this quilt to this stage, well ahead of the mid June deadline I had mentally decided on.
Lots of running around on the day's schedule-but first, back to the gym! Boy, have I missed feeling well enough to go do that-which goes to show you the habit it has become :-)

Yes, we get so dependent on exercise, and feel uggy without it, but that's a Good Thing.

Hey Cher, 3 cheers for the last stitches in the Texas baby...and a boo! hiss! for feeling under the weather. In Portland, the weather is enough to deal with, don't need to feel awful in addition.

Glad you are on the upswing. I look forward to seeing the pic of the quilt...Hugs, Finn

I'm sorry you've been under the weather - that's the pits! Sounds like you are feeling better if you are ready to head to the gym.

I'm never ready to head to the gym - but somehow I need to start doing that again!
