Strippy Quilt Top DONE!!!

Well here it is!!!!!!!!! wooo hoooo!!! the top is finished and ready to layer and quilt!

I had alot of fun playing with the red fabrics for this quilt. To continue with the strippy effect, I also made the second border strippy and I also have the binding made in strippy format too!!!

Several of you asked how the Monopoly game went the other night...

well.. I whipped butt!! Yep!!! I didn't give him a leg to stand on!!! LOL. He took the loss well. I only managed to own one set of streets, but I also added 3 and 4 houses to each street!!!

Poor fella, he had to mortgage some of his properties to pay me and everything. He said Sunday morning "so I suppose you are gonna gloat and brag to everyone on your blog you won right?" I said "but of course!!! how often do I actually win a game?"!!! LOL he rolled his eyes at me and went to play with our son! Luv ya hon!!!

While watching Will yesterday after for an hour before supper, I managed to finish another one of my sewing themed embroidery blocks. I think I have 2 or 3 left to complete!!!!

This week's plan of attack in the sewing room is to do some catch up on machine quilting and binding. I have 6 sets of placemats to quilt and bind, need to complete the hand binding on last month's blue lap quilt, as well as a few other smaller projects.

But for now, its off to the living room to play with my son. We have been up since 7am this morning (his usual time to wake up). We both finished our breakfast, (well I'm still sipping on my coffee). I have the play compound set up for bambino and ready to go. At the moment he loves to play in his exersaucer while watching his favourite shows on TreeHouse. I don't have the tv on all day while he is playing. I'm not a big fan of tv myself, and I find if he looks at it for a while he looks like he is in a trance. So off the boob tube goes and we play with his toys.

BTW, he is soooooooooooooooo close to walking!!!! He is starting to take his first unassisted steps walking toward myself and Trevor. We are figuring by the end of this week he will be a little more steady on his feet. It won't be long now before we will be running after him!!! The baby gate at the top of my main entrance stairs goes up TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

Quiltingly Yours

Walking? That's going to open up all sorts of new possibilities for him. :) Your quilt turned out beautiful. I really like the subtle variegation in the red stripe blocks.
