I was a busy bee (worky-work, busy-bee!~funny commercial) this weekend. I finished the quilt for my MIL. I don't care for the colors, but the quilting I did turned out well.

No news on my sewing machine that's in the shop. I've been using my old one, and it's hanging in there.

I worked on my pants a little, as well. I just need to do the cuffs now. I'm not feeling it this evening, though. I just want to curl up and start the fourth Harry Potter (again).

Like I need something else to try.....I downloaded this free pattern and started on it. So cute!

I saw this idea from Jennifer, and it's been ruminating in my head. I have no wall to cover at this point, but I think I'm going to try it on a clipboard, so I scoured the Goodwill stores for some books to destroy. I got all three of these plus two paperbacks to read for $6.50. I was compelled to straighten the books as I browsed. Must have been that first job in a bookstore.

I love books, don't you?

Your quilt is beautiful, Michele. I could not do that at all, so kudos to you for the beauty AND patience! :) *hugs*

That wall of words was great. I wish I had the courage (and time) to try it.
