One down, three to go!

I haven't posted for the past couple of days because I could think of absolutely nothing interesting to say about pinning the Cool Jazz quilt! But, it's pinned and ready to go. I got it prepped and started pinning Thursday night, then finished pinning last night. I also picked out thread to quilt it, wound bobbins, picked out a quilting design and did a couple of test swatches. So I'm all ready to go on that one.

The great news is that I am also all but finished with the Vintage Bow Ties quilt. Last night I finished hand-sewing the binding and started sewing on the sleeve. I just need to bury a few more threads, finish the sleeve and put on the label.

I'm trying to work my schedule to work on machine sewing early in the evening, then switch to the hand work later while I watch TV. It keeps me from getting too worn out and makes sure the hand work gets done.

Time to get busy, more later.
