two little finishes.

I was pulling from my basket of shame this week and had a baggy full of 4-patches ? After thinking on different patterns and stash of fabric to use with it  Jacobs ladder won. So then i moved on to Heather's tops. Some how that led to cleaning and organizing the sewing  room ,bedroom and living room. Please stop me now, yes i paid for this in my ankles but the rooms look great and have been clean and declutter. I really the quilts on the two shelves. Whats happening in your world.?
