    Everything has a binding! The last three just need to have them sewed down by hand! WooHoo!! It's been a very busy weekend. We got 6 more inches of snow today, there's more coming down, and the winds are blowing, so there's nothing I can do with horses in this weather anyway. Well, except to head to the barn several times a day to clean up and give them kisses and more hay. :-D

    Now I feel ready to go back to school tomorrow!

    I'll add photos of the three Talk-Abouts once they're done. The deep green green bindings look awesome. Two have that, one has red.

    I'm going to have some ice cream. :lol:

    Yea for you! I totally understand you because I LOVE making tops, but I do not enjoy the quilting part as much. Congratulations on getting some of them completed. It feels great when they are finished.

    with my quilting and don't know how many I have that need to
    be finished.

    I'm expecting five squishy packages this week, so I'll need to see if any would bump into the Bargello. There are two I know are definite possibilities. But I have many watercolor floral log cabin blocks to make! I'll whip up some of those.... after these bindings are on. Bet I can finish those by Tuesday evening--they're small. Yay!

    Very good plan, yet better that you have done what you set out to do. Yea for you, woe for me, unexpected as it might be, I always start on something else for someone else and I still have about 9 unfinished projects.

    Great Job.

    Oh goodness.. I just happened to see this--no email to let me know it popped up.

    Pictures are on pg 2 and there's a link to more.

    The floral Bargello will be half done once I get home and get all my work done...maybe by 9:30! I can't wait. :-D :-D I did post pictures of it 1/4 done in Pictures.
