|What can I say, I have a gypsy soul and a hee haw sense of humor. I'd like to think that I'm catching up with Amanda, but I have a feeling that she's still ahead of me.|

|The dark brown back coordinates nicely I think, but it sure does pick up everything, and show everything.|
|The dark back also makes the label and tumbler strip show up better. It's for a friend of the grandchildrens who just got his honorable discharge from the army this month. I hope he likes it and isn't a quilt critic who can recognize all it's flaws. If one of my children, this one may have been the black sheep, lol.|
I linked up to Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday. Go here.

|My flimsy from Alycia Quilts, Quilt of Valor Mystery Quilt-a-Long has borders now. I can't say it's a favorite, as it doesn't satisfy my gypsy soul. My colors are drab and my answer to the empty spaces was embroideries, and one is too dark and one is too light. The mystery was designed to be followed up by a quilting class, but it looked to be geared for longarms and since I don't have one I thought I'd try this. It still has to be quilted, which as I've said before even my meandering seems to improve things, so I still have hope. Evidently the tan fabric should have been all turned the same direction to avoid the shadings, but it doesn't show so much in person. As the saying goes, done is better than perfect, so I hope to get it done soon.|

|I'm kind of enjoying these small quilts. This one I think will be good for winter. |
If You've thought brown to be drab go to Scraphappy here and see if you change your mind.

|Next, a small job to them but awfully big to me since I couldn't reach and my husbands back wasn't up to trying. Luckily, the light in my sewing room closet went out just a couple of days ago and now I have light again.|

I'm having a time trying to add this note, but if this works and you can read this go to crazy mom quilts here and you'll find a whole list of "finish it up Friday" projects.
Oops. I lost my post. I'll fix this on my desktop. Guess I need a bit more knowledge about how to do it on the iPod.
Success, Good thing it was still in Google Reader.

| Hey, it's not a masterpiece, but at least it's not purple, green and orange. I joined the yahoo group for Hiddenwells and one of the ladies was kind enough to suggest making just 2 stripsets to make a baby quilt (or in my case table topper) and to try out the pattern. I thought it sounded like a good idea and I need a Halloween topper, as I gave mine away. I like to make them reversible, so I may do a wonky log cabin out of Christmas fabrics for the back. A twofer, and if it's wonky it won't have to be straight. |
PS After I took the picture I noticed that the blocks on the top right weren't turned correctly, so I fixed them.
