Breakfast in Bed, did you say? Oh, yeah!

We did discuss favorite breakfast foods today while we were quilting.  There were four of us:  Konnie, Soo, Bab and me (SG).  Two of us like oatmeal (one makes it every day... while the other of us makes it only in the winter), one likes french toast, and one likes cheerios (every day!). 

NO ONE said they ate their breakfast in bed, though.   Do you??

We have Very Little left to do, so a couple or three of us may get together this Thursday to finish the hand quilting!!  (Do you suppose pricking our fingers more often might be a greater possibility?)  ;-)

Yet to do:
1) Remove those various items: needles, thimbles, spools of thread, scissors, etc. and the pins and tacks that hold the quilt on the frame.  Thus removing the quilt from the frame.
2) Sew the binding fabric around all the edges.  (Konnie, did you already volunteer to do this?)
3) Fold over and hand stitch the other side of the binding to the quilt. (Do you think four or five people could do this at the same time?)

Lori, we missed you today.  But we'll keep you posted!  (We need your expertise.)

We hope to have this on display in church over the weekend of October 25-26.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if it were completely finished??

NOW... to the matter of the pillow...   I do have several 9-patch blocks that were left over (don't ask why, we don't know!).  Wouldn't they be useful in making pillows for the five of us that have done the hand quilting??  :-)

Stay tuned!

Great job! I missed all of you today! Because of your hard work, it looks like we will meet our deadline!

P.S. I like coffee, orange juice, and cereal - but not in bed!
