I'm Doing the Dance

Andy had a business trip to Providence, Rhode Island yesterday so I decided that I was going to work on the donation quilt for the Country Loft show...as the morning got going I made another decision...I set a goal...The quilt top was going to be done by the time my man came through the door from the airport. Well, I reached the goal and I did the dance. I couldn't be happier.

This was a great pattern...High Cotton by Miss Rosie...the directions were perfect and the fabric is so pretty...all I had to do was follow the pattern.
It was a very happy day!

Aren't those kinds of days great! I'm glad you've met your goal and are dancing!

Looks great . . . I can just see it out there in that cute little yard at Country Loft on display *s*

Darlene said...

That is so cute - tell us more. What fabric?

I'm thinking that you should abandon the whole idea of sending it to the Country Loft and just send it to me. OK?????? LOL

I use the goal method often when I am sewing and it spurs me on. Good finish on the quilt top and so nice that you are donating it to a good cause. Wish I could go to the Country Loft show! I'll just have to visit through the pictures on their website.
