Just One More Row! :-)

How many times have you said that yourself?

I walked into my sewing room this morning to read blogs, have a cup of coffee and do the crossword puzzle on-line. After I did all my routine things I turned in my chair to face my sewing machine and decided to finish assembling the final 24 blocks for this quilt. After I'd finished I thought I'd assemble a row or two to see how it was going to look. I have a long list of things I need to do today but I kept telling myself 'just one more row' and before I knew it I was adding the final row and calling it done. LOL This was one I cut during my cutting frenzy two weeks ago and it's called "North & South" from Mostly Quilts.

I hope that you've found time to spend with your sewing machine and are having a good week!

Thank you for stopping by and for letting me share!

In Friendship!

I've said it too often myself! Your quilt is wonderful. What a great scrap quilt pattern! It almost looks like butterflies flying across the surface. Very nice....

I just love that top, what a fun pattern. Isn't it fun when you think you are going to just do a little more and end up finishing it.

Well, lookie, lookie at that beauty ! It's gorgeous and soooo warm looking, Darlene ! Just the kind of quilt to cuddle under...

NO, I didn't find time to sit in front of my (mean) sewing machine. I stitched a little, handpieced a little, appliqued a little - you know : spreading confettis, as usual, LOL.... and trying to catch up, with Norway still in my head and heart :>)

Biiiig ((HUG)) and smiles, dear !
