Catching Up...

All I have left to do is the binding and my guild competition quilt will be finished. I spent all day yesterday doing the surface quilting, but ran out of gas (and thumbs) before I could finish the hand sewing for the binding.  I'll take a couple Aleve™ and finish it today.

Do you think I should show you a picture of the whole thing before the competition or would you rather wait til after the judging? I can go either way on that. Just let me know what you think.
I did manage to make a batch (6) of Revolution Rolls to try out, too. (Two might have been consumed with dinner last night.) I was tickled that they looked just like Sandy's photos! They were pretty good - especially when you consider that there are only a few ingredients: cream cheese, eggs, cream of tartar and Splenda™. (Note: you can click on the italicized name of these rolls above for the link to the recipe.)

I'm going to take the the rest of them and actually make sandwiches today. (You use two to make a sandwich, as they're too thin to split.) I'm thinking tuna fish might be good. I love that stuff, and can't tell you how sick I get of using lettuce leaves instead of rolls. Now, I can use these rolls and actually put lettuce inside. Brilliant!

I've got inspiration lined up in the studio that I can't wait to tackle. Next will be a project for my brother, followed by a quilt repair task that I'll be sharing with you as I work on it. I'm also fitting in projects for my new product line launch. I'll tell you all about it in mid-November. I hope you will be excited about it as I am.

What do you have planned for today?

Your quilt is stunning...I can tell just by this little peek-a-boo. You will definitely be ready for the competition and with no stress of last minute. Yummy looking rolls. I love Tuna sandwich and my Grandma always had the good albacore while I could only afford the cheap brownish tuna. What a difference. Oh and she had ruffles potato chips with our sandwiches. Happy eating...
