All pinned up

Well, thank you for your many, many well wishes.  I haven't tried any of the blogger suggestions as I just didn't feel like doing much this week.  Apologies again for not getting back to you...I will get back in the swing soon, just stick with me.  I finally started to feel a bit better yesterday, which was lucky because we took a family trip to the orchard and a hay ride out to pick the best pumpkin ever.

Then I came home and started working on this quilt.  Collection:  Fandango by Kate Spain; Pattern can be found in Heather Mulder Pearson's book Let the Good Times Roll book.  I had the blocks all together, so I added the borders and sewed the back.  I woke up this morning feeling even better.  Today I have been working on pinning this monster and getting caught up on laundry!  But, that is a different monster all together, isn't it?


Anyway, the wedding that this is suppose to be a gift for is the 15th of October....13 days away.  Pressure is on!  Will I finish it on time?  Stay tuned.

Your Fandango is beautiful Kris!!! I have been procrastinating on basting my Single Girl Fandango for about three weeks now. I have to get that done. Lucky me - no deadline! Good luck with yours.
