Valentines' Day Project

I started the day with a little sewing while Bill was getting ready........I finished the quilt of Mom's on the frame and loaded up a little one for Mille and finished it!
A nice all over meander if just right for this one using variegated purple thread.
Then we tackled a big job today-I started out myself but ended up needing some muscle.
And things really moved along when Bill joined the team........
We have 3/4 of the room finished....we have to enclose the area around the air handler before I can lay the rest but I am thrilled with our progress today!
Isn't the wood much nicer than the cement!!!  Now I am off to my ibuprofen dose again-I am sore everywhere.  (This room is going to have  a desk for Bill and some exercise equipment.  It also doubles as a guest room when we overflow the bedrooms!)

FINALLY A FINISHED SOCK MONKEY QUILT!

As I was pulling this quilt from the machine after sewing on the binding, I was happily trimming threads and noted a snarl on the back.  And...
