little jimmy's

after making the call to Wilkes bare VA center last Monday and finding out they needed a total of 87 quilt's i shut and went to my wtf place thinking what the fabric. after a few hour's and several Dr.pepper's later i came out and dug some more fabric out. (after i had just tidy thinking i had enough quilt's) and decided to make some lapp quilt's. In all fairness to the VA. center i don't think they realize what they are getting. they will Feb.17Th.
So like any good troop doe's I'm marching on . bonnie thank you for getting me past my meltdown. and thank you Rose Anne for showing up with more fabric and batting . i would like to say more but as you can tell i need to quilt.

ufo report.

At the retreat this week i wanted to finish some things that have been sitting around . 5 yds of toweling became 6 dish towels. I joined Kathleen Tracy's The American Schoolgirl Club. i wanted to use leftover block's and stash fabric.
Lori. from Humble Quilts is running a quilt along . I am now up to date.

Patchwork Penguin's #3 UFO is dear Jane block's. I realized i need ed to stop work on it and just put my fav. blocks together.

this weekend was one of the best i 've had in a long time . seltzer sisters rock. i feel recharged and ready to finish project jimmy.
