The past two weeks have been very hectic! The Bras for a Cause/Girls' Night Out took a lot of time and energy but since the event was Wednesday (and it was wonderful), things are slowing down a bit. I have just a couple of things to finish up for that (thank you notes, final delivery of some silent auction items, etc.) and then I hope to get back to quilting.
I've been reading a few of the threads here about the new format and quite honestly, I haven't taken much time to really check

Choosing a quilt binding for your baby quilt should be done once the quilt is assembled. It is difficult to make a decision on what type of fabric should be used for the binding and how it will look on the quilt.

Making this doll quilt is a perfect time for me to try new things so far it is a very simple process. I have chain stitched all squares and they are ready to fill with a little fiber, then i will chain stitch the open sides.

We live in Trego WI, on a 'flowage' of the Namekagon River, in the woods. ("We" = me and my husband of 38+ years, Tom.)
In WI, a flowage is created by damming a river to create a lake. But, this is still a river, so the water is always moving. This means that we have very few mosquitos, even in the depth of summer.
The Namekagon is
Our house shook last night at 10:55pm. It was quite a surprise and my little Italian Greyhound totally freaked.
Don got home from his five day whirlwind trip to Phoenix and back about 11:30am today. He is pretty tuckered out.
The last of the feral kitten has been neutered and now the whole colony is non-producing. They are so pretty in their winter coats. They have had very healthy appetites; hope that is not a sign of a bad winter to match our bad summer.
