The rag quilt is sewn together ready for clipping the fringe. That will be done over a few days so as not to destroy the hands. I should have done some yesterday but I didn't. I did get some hand quilting done on the carolina lilies quilt. The quilting in the blank squares looks great and I like to do it. The quilting in the pieced blocks is a pain and looks... um... well add the word of your choice. I have one motif in the plain block and then I need to mark the corners that are plain quarter blocks. (and, a million pieced blocks .. ok 8 or 10) I will probably start the borders as soon as all of the plain inner blocks are done.
Late in the day I made some Raisin Rats for Pat to take to work. He loves raisins so I thought I would try the recipe. Yum. I made them with golden raisins. I have 5 dozen cookies to make for a community cookie swap. Haven't made up my mind what I will take. Any suggestions? I was thinking of doing pressed sugar cookies in the shape of trees. Except they make such small cookies. But they would look Christmas-y.
I'm off to finish quilting the wall hanging. I hope to get it hung this weekend and then I'll add a picture here. Ruth emailed to say she has my quilt ready that she was long arming (is that a verb?) so will have to get the binding ready for that. And, the clipping... it should be at least started!!
Happy quilting all! Stay warm (or cool if you're down under!) Bonnie
