The Sweat Shop....

Did you celebrate National Quilting Day by sewing, shopping for fabric or something else fun? Except for a few "had to do" chores, I spent all of yesterday in the sewing room. With hubby turning the thermostat up and me turning it down, it felt like a sweat shop most times...

I got both borders on Wild Thing (it really needs a new name, any thoughts?) and will drop it off at the quilters on Tuesday....
The quilt is pinned to another quilt so that dark red border doesn't belong to Wild Thing....it belongs to a house quilt...



I didn't have any backing, so I dragged asked the hubby to go to Hobby Lobby with me.. I had a 40% off coupon so I got Kona cotton in an olive green....

I also picked up some Kona Snow to start on a baby quilt.. Here is a sneak peak..

Make Life by Sweetwater.. Love it..





Hopefully I will have the baby quilt put together today...

Tuesday we are having a "Caravan of Real Estate Agents" coming through the house, so tomorrow will be spent cleaning..... and making some chocolate chip cookies so the house smells good... Gotta get this house sold!!

I like the name Wild Thing...I think you should keep that name. Good luck with the house-selling thing. I used to do that with the scents, too...baked items....cinnamon sticks simmering in water on the stove, etc.

No sewing here but I had to chuckle about the up and down thermostat.. when I'm cooking the furnace doesn't kick on as often and hub will be in the basement and feeling cold so he sneaks up and turns the heat up.. when I start sweating I know what he's done and I turn it back down.. then he starts feeling cool again.. and sneaks back upstairs and turns it up again LOL Men

Love your quilt top, I didn't do any quilting, boo hoo, spent the afternoon watching movies and hand stitching hems. Looking forward to seeing the new baby quilt, oh darn I didn't get to the po for you, next weekend.

No sewing here! I had a lazy day! Made up for it today :) Wild Thing looks great, did you stop for air? How about calling it In a Wild Spin?

I'm telling you I did not know they carried fabric. I'll be getting it there from now on.
Love the wild thing. And the fabs your using for the baby quilt.
