My Surprise Gift

My husband surprised me with a gift tonight, 9 week old boxer puppy. Her name is Alli. My son has "Shelter Dogs of Oklahoma", so Alli is a rescue puppy. I am so thrilled to have her and I think she is so beautiful.

Thread Catcher

made a new thread catcher today. I cannot take credit for this, but I will tell you I found it on Bonnie Hunters Quiltville blog. I saw it awhile back and just got around to making it. Thanks Bonnie for sharing this on your blog. It was fast and so easy to make.

Butterfly Quilt Finished

Yea!! My butterfly quilt is now completed with the binding. I am a happy camper now. To me, it is always good to get a project done and crossed off of my "UFO Project To Do List" So now I am off to pick out another UFO to work on. I always say I make quilt tops, but, now I am starting to say I make "quilts". Hmm, which UFO should I pick to work on now, the list is long.

Butterfly Quilt UFO

As you can see I am making an honest effort in getting some UFO's done. I pinned my Baby Butterfly Quilt and it is now ready for me to machine quilt. Then I plan to quilt my Glory Bound quilt. But, first I want to show it at the NNNQG on Tuesday for show and tell. So I went to my stash of quilt tops and decided it was time to get the butterfly top quilted. Once I get it quilted I will embroider the antennae.

Glory Bound Quilt Top

Today I finished piecing a UFO Quilt Top called Glory Bound. I bought the kit several years ago and decided in 2009 to put it together. Well, I learned a lesson here and that is when buying a quilt kit do not wait years to work on it. I ran out of fabric on my last six blocks. So, I dug into my civil war fabric stash and came up with enough fabric to finish the blocks. I am, though, happy with the end result. But I do have other kits that I bought at the same time as Glory Bound. You see, there was a period of time that I bought kits as it was easy not to have pick out the fabric myself. Since then, I am back to picking out the fabric myself. Here's my Glory Bound Quilt Top.
