WHOOMP There IT Is! #7

This week's post is short...and bittersweet.  My uncle passed away and I'm making a comfort quilt for my cousin who is his only daughter.  I'd like to have it in hand when I see her this Saturday at his memorial.
I finished the top last night.
It's Zeus approved.  He's a 5 mos old English Bulldog who was our overnight house guest last night. 
Tonight I pieced the back and got it basted...and tomorrow evening I shall quilt like the wind.  

I also managed to finish the blocks for the top half of the custom order quilt and put my 49 quilting books in alphabetical order this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Let's see what you've been up to this week!

  8. Praise for Led Christmas Tree
    I ordered a Led Christmas Tree from This tree has me excited for the winter holidays. Right now, we have it in our living room. It will make a great addition to the outdoors when winter comes, though. According to my husband (who couldn't wait for me to get home from work before he set it up), it was easy to put together and the LED lights are "the real deal" - he's a light expert, apparently (wink). The kids keep going in the room and ooo'ing and ahh'ing at the tree, too. The tree did come with a set of snowflakes. I am not sure if it's because it's just the start of fall, but I wasn't exactly in love with the way they hung on the tree. The lights on the snowflakes are a different brilliancy than the tree itself, so they sort of stood out. Maybe outside I'll get it? Also, because we haven't had it outside yet / for the winter, I do want to note that the cord is thinner and less rugged than I'd expect for an outdoor tree. We will have to test it later this year and see how that goes. All in all, a great decoration for your home. (Note - I was provided this tree for review; all opinions are 100% my own.)
