Finished Five Challenge

The railfence quilts are finished!

I stayed up past midnight last night... not by choice, mind you. John likes to make a variety of drinks like smoothies, shakes, coffees, and even alcohol beverages on occasions. Well, last night, he concocted up some iced coffee for us. I usually can't drink coffee in the evening, but it's ICED coffee... my favorite! ... and it was yummy!

What to do with a jolt of energy? SEW! I prepped and attached the binding to the quilt in the above pic before heading up to bed. That was after midnight; then, only to be awaken by this cat at 5am. Don't let that innocent expression fool you! He's one persistent feline who wants to be fed at 5 o'clock in the morning and not anytime later. Sheessh... ya think, I should be able to sleep til 7am because it summer vacation after all!

Well, more coffee for me (that should explained this post) and the bindings are sewn down on the railfence quilts. These are for donations, so I sewed the bindings down by machine.

Here are my other finishes per Peg's request; she asked for us to recap our finishes in one post.

Boxy Stars started on July 1; completed on July 29.

Pink Lemonade - started in April... finished July 25; Miss Lemoney Milly - started July19... finished July 26.

Dancing Butterflies - started in July, 2007... done July 1, 2008 - another one for Project Linus.

A great big THANK YOU to Peg for setting up this challenge. I would never have imagined to be able to finish with 6 projects in one month. I got 3 of my UFOs done for Project Linus, one as a Christmas gift, and a set of quilt and doll for my expecting brother-in-law and his wife ... if the baby is a girl. If it's a boy... yikes, I need to come up with something. Any suggestions?

And now... I'm off to run my errands. Have a wonderful day!!

You reach right around and give yourself a pat on the back... you've done GREAT! I'd say you got that quilt-loading thing down... good job!

That cute, innocent looking cat doesn't appear to be a trouble maker, at all. You need an automatic morning cat feeder. Something you could program the night before like a coffee pot so it's ready for whenever you set the timer.
