Finished...sort of

ok, so i still have to sandwich it and quilt it but i finally got the borders on and finished the whole top. This was the one i was not so sure about. When i was making it and all those colors together were kind of concerning to me...but when it was all together i fell in love. Thank goodness i had Avery to help me out with the assembly or it would have taken me years!!! I was a little stuck on the outer border for awhile because i needed to figure out a way to make it all line up since i was silly enough to buy a fabric with a straight pattern. I don't know what i was thinking.
Believe it or not there is a wonderful husband back there doubling as a quilt rack! thanks honey

don't you love making progress on projects? Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love hearing what others think of ideas. I have been finding out so many people do home school I am interested in it but a bit hesitant. After seeing so many others who do it successfully I feel that it may not be so intimidating as I think. But how do you find time to do everything you do, you still sew and quilt and cook and homeschool... Is it a lot of planning for the curriculum and preparing for the next day or week? feel free to email me with any tips of pointers you have tipsidy_toesidy@yahoo.com
