We have these panels at the shop, so made these up very quickly! The extra angels from the panel were made into the focal point of a pair of strippy placemats. The half circle reversible napkins were cut using Cheryl Phillips cut-a-round tool. Aaak! the last 2 photos are sideways!! What's up with that?!? They aren't sideways on my desktop!! Oh, well. Such is life. If that was only the worst thing that ever happened to me!!!

when it comes to batiks, or any gorgeous fabric, come to think of it!! I worked yesterday afternoon for Nancy. Remember the gazillion bolts I mentioned awhile ago? Well, some found their way home with me! the batiks have no project in mind, but the other pile IS designated!! So I am rather pleased with myself about that! they represent key ingredients for 2 projects and borders and backings for 2 more. So, to work!

The child this is meant for is ONLY 5 months old. Hey, I guess that's not too bad! But since it is overdue I took the easy and fast way out--a panel. So the "piecing" (HA!) quilting and binding took one day. Guess I shouldn't have procrastinated so long! Now the child born in March will be next. Guess what? Another panel is about to be used. Then I'll be caught up with the babies in church and can start stock piling like a very smart friend of mine does-- huh, Becca?

Finished the lap quilt last night while watching (or rather listening to) Colin Firth in Pride & Prejudice. Love that movie and thought I'd give Mama Mia a break!! So tomorrow I'll take it in to the shop . Will also be buying more fabric--we unboxed about 100 bolts of batiks last week---and they are fabulous!!!

I was incapacitated for a couple of days--I HATE headaches!! So today I treated myself to some aprony goodness! I know, it's not for Val's swap, but this one needed to get done for the shop. What's Her Name's is next! I just have to pick up some embellishment stuff and it's a go. Then I'll have to force myself to think chocolate. My mind just doesn't go there!!

in one day!! From cutting to top. Hopefully I will get it quilted Monday. This is another fun fabric line I couldn't resist. There seems to be alot of those....hmmmm.
I also worked a little on Becca's mystery--now that I've seen Jami's, I think I'll work a little faster!!
