Finally--after 5 months, my reversible, quilt as you go quilt is done! I've been adding binding strips to the front and back, a few at a time in the mornings, and then doing the hand sewing them down in the evenings. Slowly, but surely, I am done! I think I figured it took about 10 yards of black Kona fabric to do just the bindings! The back is mostly tans and blacks. My husband only wants those colors in the bedroom. But when he saw the colored side, decided that might be okay too. Such a silly guy! But I figure I have one for fall/winter and the other side for spring/summer.
Well, I'm cleaning up and packing for my trip home tomorrow. I miss the kids and the hubby. Then I have another shot this week, get my nails done and go to my daughter's graduation party. She got married her junior year in college, got pregnant 4 months later and quit. Well, for the last two years she has been doing the college thing on-line and is finally done. I really admire her tenacity in finishing, especially since her job didn't require it, she won't get a raise for it, and has raised two kids during the duration. I could almost hear her scream of joy on her last night of class clear down here! So no more lazing in the sun for a while. I am returning next week with hubby, my daugher and my granddaughter. My brother and family will be visiting too, so a busy week. Glad I got my rest ahead of time! :)
