one UFO finished, and another added to the pile... :o)

I finished up a UFO! Yeah! This Blue Rails quilt is done... I had ordered Kona Snow, that I was going to use for my Dear Jane in Pink quilt, but I decided it wasn't nearly as white as I had thought it was going to be, so I had 6 yards to use for other things. I used a couple of yards of it to back this little quilt! It has been in the UFO pile for quite awhile, so I am glad to have it done. I put it up for sale on our Country Scrap Quilts site.

But then, I added another thing TO the UFO pile! HA! I finished up this little Schnibbles quilt, Sunday Best. I love the way the crisp white makes the colors pop. It went in the UFO pile, because I plan to do some simple hand-quilting on it... :o)

Oh, and I wanted to show off the TV cabinet that dear hubby made! :o) Since we got a new TV last month (finally, dear hubby says!) we needed a new cabinet! The old stand was one of those build-yourself deals from Walmart, that I have had since the kids and I were on our own... Besides, the new TV was too big to fit in it! HA! He really did a lovely job! Now all the movies and Wii games are hidden away behind the doors! Yeah! I hate clutter!

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully I will be getting my Kona White fabric later this week, and my 1800s repro, and can start on some Dear Janes by this weekend!!! I am not a patient gal! But I suppose it is good that I haven't gotten the fabrics yet, because it means I am getting other things done... :o)
