Design Wall Monday

It's design wall Monday over at Patchwork Times . I finally have my Trip Around the World top together so I'm linking up with Judy. Now to decide on how I want to do the borders.

Today was a good day since I also rec'd the new Bonnie Hunter book More Adventures With Leaders and Enders.

What I've Been Doing

I've been busy making a Trip Around The World Quilt as a gift for one of my son's friends. He married a couple of months after Kyle's wedding last August and I said I would make them a wedding quilt. I'm also working on a wedding quilt for my daughter who married in January this year. Pictures of that soon.

Today I was trying to clean up around the quilt room and came across some Preprinted tops that need borders and quilting - 14 of them:
I also found tops that need borders added, some that just need quilting and one that just needs binding. There are 37 of these. Some are wall hangings, most of them are lap quilt size or bed size so I'll be busy for awhile:
There are a couple of quilts in there from Bonnie's mysteries. Double Delight and Easy Street that need borders and quilting. Soon hope to have RRCB into top form and added to the list. I'll be busy for quite some time. These are just the ones I have found so far. Are you as behind as I am?

Wee Small Hours of the Morning

Did you stay up last night to watch the eclipse? I did and for awhile the night sky was clear enough to see it.

Just starting
Not quite half way
Unfortunately, by the time it was in the blood red stage it had moved behind some wispy clouds and my camera wouldn't pick it up at all. At that time I gave up and went to bed.
Other news around the homestead. Dh has been hard at work getting his stage ready for it's debut. His music making friends are due to break it in on the 26th of April. We will be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers and I will make potato salad and we'll see what other food delights show up. Now if the weather will just be a real spring day without a lot of wind or rain everyone should have a good time.
I'm off to work in the quilt room. Have a couple of quilts to get made
and sent off in the mail. Happy Tax Day.

Your laugh for today

Have you ever seen dehydrated chicks? Just add water and you get

baby chicks. The magician is Michael Carbonaro. Enjoy. If it were

only that easy.
