Our son-in-laws' stepdad was buried on his 90th birthday Tuesday.  And it just so happened that a winter storm blew in the morning of the funeral and it was bitter cold and snowing and had already dumped around 4 to 5 inches.  After the funeral the kids waited a day for the storm to pass and left Thursday morning and thankfully, didn't run into any problems getting back home.

So .... yesterday I spent a few hours finishing the quilting on my yellow topper.  It has the binding sewn on and I'm stitching it down slowly as I watch tv.
I did have to mark the straight lines on the geese so there is still a little of the blue marker showing in the picture.  That is now gone.
And.....I think I've settled on a name.... From now on it will be my 'Flying Sunshine'.  Much better than a knockoff submarine song don't you think?

Oh and look what the mailman had for me today.....
I've got a lot of cutting to do.

For now I'm off to get started on my February  "Violet" quilt from Judy's Monochromatic Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by....


  1. You didn't like the knock-off submarine song? How about this one, then: You are my sunshine, my flying sunshine, you make me happy...

    Come on...sing it with me, girl!

    P.S. I do LOVE this quilt!

  2. OMGosh!!! Dee you make me laugh out loud. So now every time I see this quilt I'll be singing in my head! TWO songs now!! LOL

  3. I want those two books, too, you lucky girl! Your quilt looks great. I like the name Flying Sunshine. (For some reason, I started singing the song Walking on Sunshine. I like that name, too!) Well done!

  4. Good Grief, now I'm going to be singing 3 songs all day today ROFL. I wonder what you will be making first from those books?
