Quilting Update

I still have 3 or 4 projects in progress, depending on what you count as a project. I have the trip around the world top that needs quilted. I have the homeward bound to union square blocks that I need to do something with. I scrapped the blocks from the homeward bound quilt that had all the triangles, so now I have to find something to do with the rest of the blocks. I have the flannel quilt for the winter for Alex still in progress, and I still have the quilt for an hour project in progress.

When my mom came down last Friday I went to WalMart with her and picked up some more black thread because I was low, low enough that I could see the spool! I sewed more on the project after I got the new thread (still using old thread though) and I have 16 of the 20 blocks done. Only problem now is that Alex grabbed the cord to our iron and pulled it off the ironing board and the top seperated from the bottom and Eric doesn't want me using it, so we're going to buy a new one. But the parts to the last 4 blocks haven't been ironed so I'm 4 blocks short of a top right now! And then I still have to keep sewing on them.

So the no iron issue is why I haven't been doing any updates.

Oooh - glad he didn't get hurt! Do you have an iron picked out? My mom finally sprung for a fancy iron a few years ago, but I've always had better luck with inexpensive ones! The one time I spent a little more it was a disaster! Good thing since I've had to buy new ones in different countries with different plugs and currents. :)

Sorry about the iron. I always find it amazing that the tools that I take for granted are sometimes the ones that take my quilting to a grinding halt. A computer so I can review the pattern, an iron, a seam ripper, the lost spool of thread, etc.
