After


Are you sick of it yet? I may happily give this up when I'm done after spending so many hours with it....The little thread sculpture is the result of "After" all the start/stop ends of the raw edge quilting. Now I'm onto cleaning up the back. The binding is sewn and just needs tacking down. So close!

This weekend I also made Liz' apple pie - from Julie. It was super yummy and very easy (You can see my little taste test at the top. Amazingly, I waited long enough to not scorch my mouth.) I hate rolling out pie dough - it never works for me. Here you just press into the bottom! The boys have already gobbled it up, so no after pictures on this one.

What are you going to do next? I hope it is something for you. After the Advent quilts, your mom's birthday and these you deserve it.
