QOV flimsie

Finished this at 0200 while watching a taped "Project Runway". That actually helped me to keep sewing when I was tired and wanted to poop out. Now there are 5 tops at at least to the "flimsie "stage. Theresa has got her two tops quilted!


I am very confident that I/we can finish all of these by September 17th!!

I am also THRILLED with a necklace/pincuchion that I made using a pincushion and an old, favorite eyeglass chain. I sewed the plastic loops to the top of the heart. Now when I am at the design wall, I can be hands free and arrange and re-arrange to my hearts content!
