Been playing hooky

What can I say .... it is a border thing with me! This is always where my tops get stopped and ..... well ..... other things caught my attention. Anything will do, anything to not work on those borders will do it for me. But after a week of procrastination, I buckled down and started working on them for this project. Just two more borders to do (why or why did I chose to do 3 borders) and then the tutorial to make this quilt can get finished. The centre portion went really fast, it is just the borders that slowed me down.During my time off, I celebrated my 60th birthday by going to a quilt store in the morning with a friend. Afterwards, before heading home, her gift to me got opened and there was a lot of oohhing and ahhhing. Thank you, Mary, I love my gift from you; but next time, skip the mooncake, OK?

Fall comes along on Friday and I've been thinking of changing my header with some photos. So, we'll see how it turns out. My header hasn't changed at all in the last 4 years of blogging and since I have started a new chapter in my life (according to some I'm now a senior), perhaps it is time to change my blog header.


Have a great day, eh!

Happy (slightly late) birthday! A visit to a quilt shop is a good way to celebrate.

Belated Happy 60th Birthday.
Happy quilting too. The odd piece of cake is okay, especially on ones birthday.

I had one quilt that stalled nearly seven years before I figured out what to do with the border. In Japan you get old at 70. (You have to go back to driving school and take the tests all over again and at 75 you have to put this stupid sticker on the front and back of your car to warn other drivers how dangerous you are!)Oh, to be 60 again...

Happy belated special birthday! I have to say that putting on borders is something I procrastinate over too. It's looking good!

Happy belated 60th birthday! Hope it was a special day for you. (I think it was) The borders often stop my progress, too.

Happy belated special birthday!
I don't like adding broders either, but at that stage it's nearly finished, why stop now!
