I finished the quilting on the elephant wall hanging I was working on. I still have to add the binding and a pocket for hanging. I think I am going to add some beads to the bottom too, kind of like a fringe. We'll see. I have to find the right beads for that. It is going to be a gift so I want to make sure it is just right.
I am excited about the jelly roll sampler that is starting tomorrow. I don't have a jelly roll, I am using fabrics that I already have, african fabrics, so I am not sure how it will turn out since it is all not the same or coordinating fabric line. I also printed out the first patterns in the safari quilt from Fat Cat Patterns. I would like to start working on that also. If only I didn't have a job I have to go to every day!!! My students would miss me if I didn't come though, so at least it is nice to be wanted! Some of them have made me promise them I won't die until after they graduate! Oh the minds of kids. They know that I have been hurting and see me take medication during the day so they know something is up. But being polite children they don't ask, they just say things like that!
