Today has been a very long day. I have been working pretty hard all day.
First, I finished up #12 which is below. I only needed to do a little bit more on it and then add the circles and then trim it.
Then came #13. This piece worked right along and got finished pretty quickly (well, finished enough to take home)
And then, I started cutting out my batting to lengths and found that I was going to be two short. That sent me into a depression (probably because I was getting tired and this was discouraging because doing these at home is going to be hard) so I worked on three 12 x 12" pieces which are all ready for backing and edging.
So I toddled down to Virginia's and found one piece of batting that I had given her which is big enough and a couple of half pieces that I can probably put together to make one last piece. I have lost count so many times that I really won't know how many I have batting for until I am all done.
So then, it was time to work on #14, below, which has been trimmed and ready to go.
I also spent time getting stuff packed up and now have five boxes ready to go to the post office tomorrow with two other boxes almost ready. I have decided that my quilts are getting packed in lutrador in my large suitcase...since they aren't finished quilts, I don't think anyone would give them a second glance...just fabric and batting, which will also be in that suitcase. Oh, the end is getting near.
Friday night we are going to Round Top for dinner and a quilt show. That will be lots of fun and a good diversion!
Going to hit the sack and read and go to sleep, and then be ready to get going nice and early
