Progress!

Just popping in to see how it's going.  I started the weekend without a plan. By mid day yesterday I had completed all the blocks languishing on my sewing table.  So, I pulled something from the closet (something I posted about last fall).  The top has three sets of borders - I'm half done!!!  My stretch goal is completed top and back - one more ready for quilting!

Well, I accomplished most of what I had intended. The String Spiderweb top is complete, sans border, and the doll quilt is bound. See, I just set the bar low for myself!
