A day of play

Today, I put the black borders on Iris and started the handquilting:
My lovely holder has claimed this one :)

I'm doing a big stitch with pearl cotton on the border to echo the black fabric in the rail fence:
So far, I REALLY like it - even TMOTH likes it!

1. TMOTH may have landed a part-time job.
2. Space heaters.
3. Pickups from VVA - I got about 4 bags full of stuff and the outgrown carseat out of the house today.
4. Winning my appeal with the insurance company. Small potatoes, dollar-wise, but still a victory.

what a great idea for the borcer quilting. I'm sure I'll be borrowing it at some time.

Iris looks better and better every time. It's really a work of art. Have a great weekend...
