Too cold to walk outside today.  So I went off to the Y.  I didn't even need to turn on my nano as friends were walking with me.  The time goes much faster that way.

I am ready to trim the three queens.  It turned out nice and flat.  I was afraid that if I trimmed it before I pasted, I might be sorry and have it the wrong size.  We'll see how brave I am to trim when I put Hampton Court on the top of the casket.

I put Hampton Court on the stretcher bars.

 I am afraid to wet it.  So I think I'll just paste the paper on the back - with my fingers crossed that it works out.  You can still see the ring where the hoop was.  That part will be trimmed off eventually.

I started sewing the quilt blocks together.  One row done.  I want to do row #2 today.

I finished the pink motif.

 One more motif to go and this panel is done.  I started the left flap last night but I'm off somewhere and have to figure it out and get back on track.  Ugh.

I got my new FitBit.  I like it.

 You can just rotate your wrist and the time shows.  That's handy.  Before, I had to press the button to see the time.
It is interesting to see some of the designs that are coming out at market. Stitching Bits and Bobs has a market page.  I see a few things that tempt me.  I'm going to wait until I go to Spring Fling before splurging on anything.  Stitchville is such a wonderful store for shopping.  I should start a list.


  1. Enjoy your weekend dear
    Happy stitching x

  2. You are doing a beautiful job on finishing and the quilt blocks looks wonderful!
