I guess I wasn't surprised

To wake up this morning with a migraine. After such an emotional night I guess I was due. I decided to stay home from work since I threw up a few times while attempting to get ready for work. I came down stairs and sat down on the couch. Before I knew it, it was noon and Mike was walking in the front door. Around 2 my Mom called because she just needed to get out of the house. She came and sat with me on my couch and we watched senseless tv. Later on we went out for dinner and then parted ways.

Since my head was feeling better I decided to hit my sewing room. I put borders on my Pink, Black & White Quilt.



I don't have backing for it so I'll need to get that before I can think about quilting it.

Next up was to put borders on my diamond log cabin star. I LOVE it. I have no idea how I'm going to quilt it. I do think I'm going to have it custom quilted because I'm scared of it.


And I decided that the only way that I'll get the appliqued animal baby quilt done is to have a goal of appliquing one animal a day so here's my first:


It was done in no time at all...which makes me wonder why I've been putting them off for so long!

All three are gorgeous. Your machine does a beautiful, tight satin stitch.

Great Job on the monkey, it's super cute. I have an applique that I need to work on as well. The borders look great on the pink/black/white quilt. What can I say about the star... it's absolutely stunning! I think custom quilting would make it look amazing. Glad you are feeling better.

Wow you always do a great job! I can't believe that you get so much done. I don'g know which I like the best. The borders on both quilts are great and the monkey is adorable!

I hope your headache is better! But I know stress can bring on a migraine.
