Quilting boo-boo...

One might say that I am working my poor fingers to the bone!!  Quilting on the Civil War Bride is progressing right along despite my quilting boo-boo's.  My thumb and a couple of fingers look awful, but are fortunately still functioning.

I was nuts to think I could meet my deadline to deliver the quilt to the show on April 25...I still think I can.  So all of you who have ventured a guess, the deal is still on!  I've been listening to a couple of books on CD while working...have your read/listened to "The Thirteenth Tale?"  AWESOME!!!!

The housework is in decline and meals are getting a little boring, but the family is coping well with my insanity and are cheering me on.  Thank you for all of your encouragement as well!

I am so behind on reading your blogs and responding to your nice comments...please forgive...I will catch up soon. 

Crispy was curious what I bought at The Quilt Box in Dry Ridge, Kentucky.  They have the best reproduction fabrics!!  I bought some newbies and some "oldies but goodies," mostly from Windham and Moda.  So here they are for your drooling pleasure...

Whenever I need a little TLC and balm for my sore quilting fingers, I just run my hands over these babies and they feel better IMMEDIATELY!  The prescription for sore fingers:  "take two fat quarters and call me in the morning; repeat every four hours, as needed."

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)
