Holly Jolly Blog Bingo … Day 13

Holly Jolly Blog Bingo ... Day 13

Have you ever had one of those mornings when you are so tired that your whole head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton balls? 
That’s me … right now.
After working all day, I stayed up way, way, way too late binding a quilt.  Our dear Amanda asked me on Thanksgiving day if I could “put together a quick quilt” for a dear friend of hers and her husbands.  How could I say no?  So, Thanksgiving night I began piecing, finished the next day, mailed it off to my sister-in-law to quilt it and got it back on Sunday.  She needs to have it for Thursday night, so last night I figured I better get busy binding it.  I wanted to get that done so that if today I get the “oh, by the way … mom, can you make a label too?” … I can do that tonight.

So, today my eyes are crossed and my brain is fuzzy. 

I must admit, though, that the quilt did come out beautiful.  very simple, but stunning.  The fabrics are from Holly Holderman’s (Lakehouse) Tea Time II.

 

Well, I’m ready to play Bingo!  How about you?
