Got something done, finally!!

 I started this quilt in July , after a brief visit from our firstborn daughter. She was with me when I bought the background fabric.  I'm trying to diminish my scrap stash know that can be an impossibility since they multiply when you are not looking....anyway, I did this very methodically...cut everything out and put the squares in baggies and everything into a plastic tote....sooo organized.  At least that was what I told myself.   And then I discovered that I had miscalculated the background pieces....oh woe was me.
 As luck would have it, I was able to get more....and believe me I made sure that would not happen 4 more metres just in case.  Well, here it is. I finished it last week, folded it up and forgot to take to show and tell...doh!!  I won't be quilting it for a while since DD's quilt is in the frame and it is slow going...background fabric (white tone on tone) has a paint and the needle(I have to use 7 or 8 since I break needles and bend them too much) is hard to push through.. I'll keep at it.
IN the meantime, I got to  feeling antsy with no hand work so I put this wrist pin cushion together to work on and darn it , it was all finished in less than 20 minutes. Maybe I should make some for gifties to my quilting buds....nah, they probably have them already. I'll check the next time we are all together and doing hand just never know, right.
