Two finishes

I managed to get both little WIPs finished in the last day. My needle is smokin'!

Happy Pumpkin Day finished. I will try to find the right felt this weekend to back it, and hopefully, a good inexpensive basket. I thought about getting a basket at Goodwill, but I think this would be cute as a tie on for a basket of baked goods, and it's probably not too good of an idea to buy something that will touch baked goods and can't be washed at the thrift store. Not being snobby, just realistic . . . and germaphobic

My quilt square for the memorial quilt. It's wrinkly from being washed, but will go out in the mail today. I won't iron it before it goes--it would just get wrinkled again, but I always put a note in, explaining what's going on. It would have to be re-ironed anyway as part of the quilting process. I didn't sign it. I rarely if ever sign any of my work. It's one of my wierd quirks, but I didn't think it would work with this in particular. The writing is not centered, but it's OK.

How cool to see my pattern finished! Looks fantastic but I see I need to put more details into it.

Your quilt square is just adorable and the verse is perfect.

I don't sign my work either :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
