Design Wall Monday .. if I can find it!!!

  We've been remodeling the bathroom.  Rather DH and buds have been.  It's been three days now.  Of course, the place is in a shambles.  Since we knocked out a wall, stuff in the office and the hallway had to move, too.  The highlight was the reinstallation of the toilet.  Brought a standing ovation from me.  I'd gotten tired of trotting to the corner store to borrow theirs.

The great thing was that my job was just to stay out of the way.  And so, I did.  I got to sew to my heart's content for two wonderful, though toiletless, days.

Finished DH's mom's table topper.

Finished the Christmas Table Topper 

  Started starching and cutting blocks for Anita's Arrowhead quilt from this month's Quiltmaker magazine.  I really wasn't enamored of this pattern until I saw Joanne's.  I love the old fashioned look of hers and am hoping to get the same effect with mine. I also happened upon these batiks at a bargain price and thought, why not?  I'm mixing in some solids and a few prints with it.  We'll see how it turns out.

So, that's the plan for this week, to keep cutting and starching these blocks and also to begin quilting the black pinwheel quilt I made this summer.  I notice I don't have a pic of the finished top yet, so I'll have to get that before I start the quilting process.

Did you FMQ today?  I did.

Oh, my, I think a standing ovation definitely would be in order after three days of no toilet!

The table toppers look wonderful.
