It's Offical, I Can Sew

I had thought maybe I'd lost the ability to sew... But no, I have managed to find the ability again! And it's thanks to the fabric bundle my Dear Mother sent me. She sent the pattern and the fabrics, I think, to kick start my lagging quilting life. And, too, to remind me that she loves me:)

I love her too! And here's the little quilt. And notice the hands at the top! They are finally starting to pull their own weight 'round here.I really like this little quilt top. It's small so it went together quickly, and it's the first time I've done a star. It sure was a learning process for me! I only had to rip a few seams:) Basting and quilting this is on the work list for next week.

I also managed to get the borders and the backings done for the kids brick quilts. I'm gonna sit and get those basted tomorrow. Hopefully next week I can get those quilted! Wouldn't that be a nice change. I've decided to just try to get my wips done and actually get to enjoy the tops that I've put together and love so much. It's such a waste to have them sitting in a closet.

Uh, I'll let you know how it goes!
