Ralph had no interest in helping.

But today I set up the ironing board and got it all pressed. That stripe in the middle isn't really a stripe - it's the length-wise borders cut to size.

Hopefully I can get to quilting tomorrow - the reality at my house is that my quilting machine often looks like this:

I also spent some time today shifting things around, so now it looks better:

Most of the spending was on batting :) Labor day sale at Jo-Ann netted 5 yards of Warm & White and a queen-size Pellon batt.

I also bought two spools of thread, a new rotary cutter, and two half-yard cuts of CUTE flannel:

I just don't remember fabric that cute being around when *my* kids were babies. I was able to make four burp cloths out of this so far, for the half-yard used ~ I used the tutorial here. The first ones I made were the pink owls, backed with a snow-died t-shirt I never wore because it was too tight for me, and I was cursing the advice to use the knit. The pink knit for the puppies worked much better for some reason.

And now the bib pattern I worked up has disappeared! I can re-do it, but that's just annoying.

I can't see your photos for some reason If I click on them it takes me to photobucket and not sure what I am supposed to do from there. Might be something I have done wrong.
