Busy Busy Busy

Joy and I have been very productive these last couple of days. We both have the borders on our Mystery Marathon quilt. Here is mine:

And here is Joy's:

Hopefully they both will be quilted real soon.

I have also been busy with my Nirvana quilt. Here it is with the first two borders on. I have about 3 more to go. We shall see how it looks after the next two.

And I pulled my "birthday quilt" from two birthdays ago out of the UFO drawer and started working on it as well. I am making this quilt:

From this book:

Using these colors:

These yummy fabrics were a gift from Joy when we visited them. We had a good time sewing then as well. It would be nice if I could get it finished before my next birthday. If I could keep plodding along I should be able to complete it by June. Hmmm--what to start playing with tomorrow. Another border on Nirvana--probably. A tote bag pattern is staring at me and I still have to catch up on all my other BOMs. This week is flying by. It will be Sunday soon and I will be very sad when Joy goes home. Hopefully our flow of motivation will continue after she returns home. I won't think of that now. Must enjoy the time we have left. And don't forget to go visit Joy's and guess how much money was in Perth the purple pig. A-
