Storm at Sea

Between yesterday and today I had alot of errands and chores to get done, so I didn't get too much quilting done. I had planned on quilting all night tonight, during football, but my back is a killing me. I guess I will take a break tonight and just try and getting some binding done, but it is soo hot here today. I guess doing 5 loads of laundry, taking them out to the line, cleaning the house, running my mom on errands, making a cake and now ......dinner....hot dogs it is....glad the boys are not too picky.

You remember those blocks from the other day? Well, I did get the top done, it was a Storm at Sea pattern, now I have to decide what kind of border and how big? I really don't want this to be a huge quilt though, since I hate quilting them when they are large. It is just really difficult to do and I tend to lose my patience really quick.  I do know that I want to put a dark blue or brown or....who knows  mini border type thing around first. You know the kind that is folded in half but not sewn down just sewn between the top and border....as you can tell I can't remember what it is called. I want to say flange but I don't know if that is correct.

Don't know how much quilting I will get to tomorrow. I have my month old neice coming by for a stay, this way I can get my baby fix.  That should make for an intersting day and more than likely remind me why I don't want to have another baby.

Enjoy the wonderful weekend,
