The Beauty of Starts and Finishes

 I finished this little wallhanging for my friend Terry a while back. He was, and continues to be, a great source of encouragement to me in the last year and a half.

    I love how it turned out! The fabrics are wonderful....I bought more of them for my stash.
I plan on making Wisconsin my home in the very near future, so I figure I need to have a few tops ready for the hoop. I foresee alot of hand quilting time coming up. Winters here are long and hard. Mason's quilt had the priority. I love this top!!
 It reminds me of a circus....not sure why. I will figure out a way to put that into the name.
 The next top is bed size and only needs the borders put on. I'll do that next week, and then finish another UFO top waiting in the wings. In my hoop right now is this little 36x36 inch gift quilt. It has the same fabrics as Terry's quilt and is for my lifelong friend, Lori.
 My Queen size Underground Railroad quilt is just about done. Only the 2 outer borders need quilting and they should go fast. I plan on much productivity this winter!
The next 3 days will see nothing but playtime with this guy!!!!
 He came north this morning to spend a 4 day weekend with his grandma and John. He wore me out on the first day!! He wore himself out too, and was sound asleep at 7:30, which is why I was able to do this little post. He'll be up bright and early and ready for more fun. 
I hope your weekend will be as entertaining as my own!!!
