I don’t normally post about these on Fridays but I’ve got a couple of finishes that I’m really happy about.  First my really long UFO for cross stitch is finally done and in the frame!  The hubby already hung it on the wall!

I’m in the middle of binding this one so technically not yet a finish.  I’m almost finished binding 2 sides and I’m trying to get the other 2 sides finished so I can bring it to show and tell at my next guild meeting on Monday. It’s good to work with deadlines.  🙂

I think I’m starting to get back into the swing of things.  Little finishes here and there and pretty soon, a project will be complete.  I finished quilting Moon Glow last weekend and then I finished putting together the inner top for Missing Ivy.  Next up is getting the borders done.  I will be moving that goal to August. 🙂  I am enjoying myself.

I was rushing to get this done before a meeting and when I went to press it, I realized I messed up. 😦  I set it aside to work on another day.

I started going to yoga again.  I didn’t say but when my parents came to visit last month, my routine was interrupted and I’ve been skipping yoga.  But I started up again on Wednesday and I was able to go yesterday too.  That’s twice already.  I’m really sore but I want to go again today.  I do have some commitments planned today that tell me that I probably won’t make it.  The thing about yoga is that it helps me sleep.  That might be true with other kinds of exercise but I get the best sleep with yoga.  And when I sleep, I’m so happy with the world. 🙂  Even when a virus threatens to take down your company as it did yesterday. ;0  Anyway, all that to say that going back to yoga takes up a bit of my crafty time so I wasn’t able to get the machine quilting finished on Raining Cats and Dogs.

But I’ve got the first two rows done and I’m working on the third.  The bottom third row has the biggest pucker of all and it runs through the middle of the middle block.  I’ve already unbasted the block on the right and I’ll pin it this evening.  I need to work real hard in getting the pucker out of the middle block.  I think it’s all about pinning this evening.
