Tired . . . very, very tired . . .

I have been sewing non-stop for a couple of weeks and I finally finished up the last of it (well, almost).  I finished up the binding of the Asian quilt that will be going in Asian Fabric magazine for March.  I still have to make up the label to stitch onto the back, then I'll pack it away and send it off to the West Coast.  I'll post a picture of it here after it's been officially published.  I hope to do more work with them in the future.  The publishing gal is wonderful to work with!

Russ Adams of The Back Porch Quilter did the long-arm machine quilting for it and it turned out beautifully.  I haven't worked with many quilters because I've always done my own work, except for a few instances.  I'm not very good at it, so it is a blessing to have met Russ and his wife, Rhonda, through my friend, Dana, of Old Red Barn Co.  She's the girl who has the cool blog that I'm so envious of.  She's got the knack for it and I wish I could be like her when I grow up.
