My black and white project is done. Turned out nice. I think my niece is going to like it.
The black, red, and white quilt is coming along nicely. All the blocks are done, squared up, and ready to put together. I'm worried tho. I did the binding by hand on the pictured item here, and it had my arthritis screaming at me before I was done. How am I ever going to hand-quilt an entire quilt? This could be a problem.
I still haven't started on a new baby quilt, but I have picked out the fabric and pattern. Going to be soooo much better.

I am so displeased with the baby quilt I was working on (see previous post), that I am going to start all over and go in a completely different direction. Sigh. It doesn't happen often that I so dislike what I've put together, but when it does, I've learned to just let it go. It doesn't pay to try to fix it. It's just best to go on. And that's that.

On the other hand, the black, white, and red blocks are almost done. Singly, I love them. I told my niece the other day that if I didn't like them put together in the quilt top, Travis and Erica would be getting 31 potholders from me!! I think it will work, and I think they'll appreciate something that's a little outside the box.

I've got two books waiting for me at the library....the latest John Sandford, and "Water for Elephants." My niece recommended this one. We'll see....doesn't SOUND like my cup of tea, but I'm prepared to be delightfully surprised. She says it's one of her favorite books.

So.....lots of choices on what to do with this bright sunny day. Enjoy, everyone!
