Kansas Troubles are here to stay

This was today's project :)
Like it says, 16 are shown but more than 20 are done. Actually 20 are sewn into pinwheels. Making the blocks 20% done . YIPPEE!

For every one of these finished, that means 2 of the lazy/shooting star blocks are done also :) Good thing I only need 520 of them. Maybe it's time to think of big borders.
I probably have 80 of those done too. Need to cut more 6" squares tomorrow.

I have the black/red and white pineapple blossom quilted and the binding sewn on. Tomorrow when I come back from my mom's I hope to quilt the blue one. Those are the only 2 gifts that need to be quilted by the holiday. I have 4 more shirts to embroider but that's another project. My laptop lost internet and I'm going nuts trying to connect it so in the meantime hubby bought a 8gb memory stick that I'm transferring from my pc to the laptop a million or so embroidery designs. Some are unzipped, most are not. Which is a major PITA on the laptop :(

My mom is having major sight issues. She's become legally blind in a week :( and losing her zest for life. She was an advid crocheter and she could read a book in a day or two. No more.

Who's ready for the fat man in the red suit????

Morning Kim, this is going to be one gorgeous quilt!! Don't get discouraged...I know it means A LOT of sewing, but it will be worth it!! I always wanted to make a Delectable Mountain(similar to your KT)and I finally did. I made it scrappy and KING size. Needless to say that altho it's been finished as a flimsey, it's been 6 years and there it sits! What needs doing is to take off one row so it's closer to QUEEN than KING.
Maybe in '09!! Big hugs, Finn
