Wow!!!!! Giveaway

Quick.....get over toLily's Quilts  fantastaic Kona fabric giveaway!!!!

WIP Wednesday!!!!!!!!

Oh my ...where has the week gone? I haven't done a lot this week; I hurt my back, so I am taking it a bit easy.  shhhhhhhhh just a bit.  I have made a little progress on the 'Blueberry Basket' quilt top. I got one border added with the applique fused on; but that's it. 
Oh.........and I am quilting for a lady...This quilt was hand quilted by someone else...When she got it back it
didn't have enough quilting on it...So; I am adding much more to it for her. I am doing it in a hoop; which I never use. That could be the back problem...but I can't show you a picture, because I didn't ask for permission to show it. And wouldn't want anyone's feelings hurt.  But I will say; it is a lovely quilt...and a    couple more days will finish it.                                                            

I am linking up to Lee and Monika; so head on over and have a look at the wonderful work.  Take care...

'Broken Star/Square' is completed. All hand quilted and waiting to be shipped to England..That takes care of all my orders from the summer. I do have a few to quilt for others..but the orders from scratch; now, maybe, I will get back to UFOs??? U think?..

This is what was left outside last week...I dug all of my bulbs up for winter...I still had on Dahlia blossom and a few straw flowers...had to savour them...thanks for visiting....
