I SPY!!!!!

These pictures show the progression of my day...IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!  My friend Chris invited me to help machine quilt the "I SPY" quilt that I have been working on for the last 2 weeks.  (This is the quilt that I had to un-sew 4 rows of awful quilting.)  I got to her home about 9a, we got everything all set up, and began quilting.  This was my very first experience on a long arm machine.  It was very scary, but VERY fun!  I sure hope that she invites me to her creating space again.  It always takes longer then expected.  She had several beautiful "show and tell" projects to show me.  I always get so inspired when I get to see where others create and their stashes.  I came home about 11:30a and ate some lunch.  Then I sewed the binding on and hand sewed it down.  I finished by 3pm.  Now I have another finished project!  Every square is different, with the fun smiling lady bugs on the border.  It measures 59x65.  It is just plain FUN!

I guess I haven't learned to rotate pictures yet, but aren't these colors yummy?  This was a stack of new fabrics Chris had on her desk, for a new project that she is working on.  She is going on a shop hop this weekend, and will get some additional matching fabrics.

My week ended on a very high note, I hope that yours is doing the same.  Have a wonderful relaxing weekend.  I would appreciate your ideas and comments, they make my day!!
