I sewed the borders on my orphan block quilt. I need to think of a better name for it, don't I? I found this fabric in Texas when my daughter was graduating in the spring. This border fabric has all the colors of the quilt in it, I knew I would find the perfect project for that wild fabric!!

I have been binding up all the quilts here. I had 2 quilts from last spring I thought I needed to sew binding on. Nope, just hand stitch the binding. Then I have 4 more table runners to hand stitch and the mountain is conquered!! I took inventory and I have 4 quilts to get on the long arm and quilt. I am the most caught up ever. I want it to stay that way. I have goals to finish my Civil War Diary Quilt, the second Victory quilt I have started and begin a long journey with Dear Jane in 2011.

Yesterday, my husband had a terrible day. There was an error made in our checking account with a company that made an unauthorized charge. Boo, creative money handling and we are all OK. Then his mother went to the ER and is in the hospital with her lung disease. And to top it all off, DS bought a itunes card. It was missing when we got home from the store. I went back and it wasn't in the parking lot. It had slipped in between the cup holder and the console in my van. I thought I could pop a storage drawer out, but no I jammed it. DH saved the day by fixing the drawer and finding the itunes card. Poor guy, he needs a great day today.
So starting today it will be a more normal week for me around here. I have a bit of a cold so I skipped Mondays workout and I need to go today. I have one violin student on Thursday. Tonight I am going to pin a small quilt of Mom's on the frame and try a new stitch. Then Friday we are going to the high school football team's homecoming. Ahhh, back to the good old routine, I love it. Quilting, knitting and sewing makes it all better.

I hope you're husband had a better last few days! It's never good when it seems to all pile up on us. I hope he has a theraputic activity to help relieve some of the stress for him. I don't know what I'd do without my knitting, quilting or stitching to help!
