Show and Tell...



 Yes, I actually have finished quilts to talk about!

Not just one.. but four!

Remember this? 


Done!
 
and, this?
Finished!

Hand quilted and bound!

This one waited for two years to be machine quilted..

Done!


And finally, K's quilt is also machine quilted and on her bed.

I sat on my machine (on my chair) last week and kept repeating like that little engine that could.

I think, I can! I think, I can!

I was quite apprehensive about quilting these big quilts myself on the machine.
 But here is the truth...
The house does not get cleaned unless someone has those cleaning gloves on 
and...
I can not turn that tall pile of quilt tops into quilts unless I put on my quilting gloves!
So I did!
 I basted those quilts and got right to it.
Two out of four quilts were done last week.
I felt like a super woman!


I had some help from K and her friends capturing that feeling!


  I don't think they minded the heat!

That's what quilts do! Make you feel happy and forget about everything.

Don't your think these smiles make those quilts shine even more?

Well, I am ending this summer with a really great note!

It has been the most memorable summer in a long time and I am sad to end it with another long blogging break.

I have had rotator cuff injury for last two years.

Next Tuesday, I am going in for a surgery.

It has been bothering me for quite sometime and it is time to fix it!


I don't know how long this break will be but quite relieved that the pile has shrunk just a bit before the surgery and recovery..

Four down and 36 more to go!

I will be back with better shoulder and even more motivated to finish them all.

Look what two months of being away from the sewing room did!

All I had to do was, believe.

"Yes, I can!"

Hopefully, I will be back before you even have chance to miss me!

By the way,
 I can not tell you how appreciative I am of each of you visiting me and taking the time to leave a comment. If you are a no-reply blogger, please send me your email address so I can stay in touch with you. Thank you for being my blogging friends and sharing this journey.

Going back to the sewing room..

One more finish? 

Who knows!

You will have to wait and see :)
