I love it when....

Things go the way you've hoped! I was right about getting out of work early, so I was able to run by Jo-Anns and get some quilting thread and heart toggles, and a snowman pillow that was marked down 90% for one of my little ones. Then after a quick trip to the store for a couple things and a stop by the pizza shop I was able to get some sewing done while the rest of the family watched the Super Bowl. Yippee!!

Now I wish I was able to get accomplished what Bonnie did over at Quiltville, you'll have to go check out her scrapy bagrgello quilt... just wonderful. But I was thrilled I was able to get as much done as I did. I was able to get one panel completly sewn and a second cut into strips ready to sew together. I think I am going to make two more panels and go ahead and put a border on it to make it throw sized. It has gone together very quickly, and I am just thrilled that I was able to cut those tubes into STRAIGHT rows of squares!! I was sooo afraid I was gonna end up with some weird wonky shape :cO I've gotten everything ready for the sewing I want to do tomorrow. Mondays are my day I devote to working on only older UFOs (although I may make an exception for the doggie quilt tomorrow, maybe only another hour of quilting on it and it will be done) So hopefully I'll have a nice progress report for tomorrow. Hope you all had a great Superbowl/Bargellowbowl Sunday!!
