Done with Deadlines... Back to BOM's

Well I am done with my deadlines for a while. Here is the Baby Quilt I mentioned in my last post. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to hand sew the binding to the back and sew the label on. But it is ready to go for tomorrow. I just need to get a gift bag and card and I'm set. :)

So now it's off to do dishes, take a shower and if I have time before hubby comes home to run errands I will work on a couple of my Block of the Months I've been neglecting.

Have a blessed day!

PS did I mention that I made 3 fingers bleed during the course of doing this. I think I need to hold off in hand sewing for a day or two.. they are ouchy. :(

Happy Father's Day Dad

Another one done.
My Dad's Birthday is the 3rd of July, so my husband and I try to spend his Birthday with him each year and celebrate the 4th with him. Well this year it didn't work out with time off, but we are happy that we will be able to go and spend Father's Day with him.
So since I made a nice lap quilt for my Dad's Wife, my Dear Step-Mom, I had to make him one too. :) He has a Schnauzer that is very dear to him and so this is what I came up with.

And in my traditional way I have made a matching label for the back. So Happy Fathers Day Dad.

I'm finishing up the binding on a baby quilt that will go to an expecting Mommy that is a very good friend of my youngest daughter and like a daughter to me also. I won't be here for her shower next weekend so I needed to finish it to give her on Friday. I'll have pictures of it soon too.

Happy Sewing everyone!
