I lose track of time...

and I forget to post.
I'll add pictures in another post today.
But!  I can cross two more items off my FAL list.  (Well, I kind of did already.)
I finished the Stained quilt.  My quilting isn't stellar, but it's grey, so you can't really see it.
I'm planning on snuggling the dog in it later.  He is a mega quilt snuggler.  (Almost as much as a cat.)
I had to make a dr's run yesterday because my top lip swelled on Thursday night.
Allergic reaction is most likely culprit.  But, we're not sure to what.  Possibly mold on the pint of blueberries I ate on Thursday.  It could be anything.
That's the part that is so suck-o about allergies.  It could be something I touched...or ate...or breathed.  Blarg.

Anywhoo, I've got my do.good quilt top and back assembled.  Today's agenda includes basting and quilting in some manner.  I may just go for "organic" straight lines.  I'm trying to get this one done by the end of the weekend.

Also on tap, finishing my Sew Bee Blissful blocks for July and the rogue Nubee block I haven't finished.  I'm also eagerly awaiting the arrival of some 3x6 blocks so I can work on the fiance's quilt top.  I am in need of three blocks.  I had one that turned out to not be usable from an old swap.  I'm expecting a few more but 3 folks in other swaps are AWOL, so I know 2 are coming, but I don't know about the other 3.  I may just be impatient and MAKE the last missing block.

I've only got about 2 more weeks before work kicks here are my unreasonable goals:

1.  Finish the Soda Pop QAL quilt.
2.  Finish the fiance's quilt.
3.  Finish at least the quilt top for B's quilt.
4.  Handquilt the Medallion quilt.

Add to that finishing a crap load of hexie flowers.  I'm not sure I can make it.  But I sure am going to try.  Another post featuring pics will come later!
