Finish #2--#3 Loaded

The Double Slice Layer Cake quilt is off the frame----all the quilting is finished and I've loaded quilt #3 is loaded onto the long arm.  I have binding to do, but I love sitting in the evening watching a movie and sewing on bindings, so no excuses there.  I want to make a flanged binding with turquoise and red to match this Riley Blake fabric.  I'll post another photo once it is finished.

I've also ordered 5 wide backings for some of the other quilts hanging in the closet.

Yesterday was so beautiful outside that I didn't quilt at all.  Instead I pulled weeds (and there are plenty of those this year!)-----and I've been wanting to clean the fountain and repot some of the plants, so I spent most of the day out in the wonderful sunshine!

Today Norma is coming over and we are going to play with Miss Ellie' (Babylock Ellisimo) arranging some text on the machine, and learning more about Designers Gallery Works.  She got an Ellisimo this past year and is just starting to machine embroidery.  We will have some fun planning some embroideries and sharing ideas.

Hope you have a wonderful day too---. It is another sun filled day here in Sonoma County wine country ---rain is expected towards the end of the week. We need more rain, and more rain means more time quilting! even though I do love being out in the yard thinking about new plants. Cleaning up weeds?---not so much fun.
