Fingers and toes crossed!

It was what has become the usual Sunday ordeal today!  Getting Jonathan up and getting to the store on time with him in tow, never pleasant, but necessary due to the frequent Open Houses we have had to endure!  The day went rather quickly and around 4:30 P.M. I got a call from Tanzie to say that a couple that had been at the Open House today wanted to come by around 6:30 P.M. to see the house again!  She expected an offer! 

That kaiboshed any ideas of getting to the grocery store so plans for tomorrow's lunch changed rather quickly.  They arrived and walked around for about 1/2 an hour and then 10 minutes later I got another call from Tanzie saying she was on her way over for the offer presentation......

It was decent, although it took a bit of doing, she had left and her and Gord had to turn around and come back before it was signed, sealed and delivered.....but the offer is in pending financing (which this time does not look to be an issue) and a house inspection so by Friday at 5:00 P.M. I should know if there's a deal!  Hence fingers and toes crossed!  This could be it!

After they all left, I nursed my sciatica and took some drugs and figured I should get back down to Molly's Meadow and get something with Totally Stable in hand, down I went!  Again I have to thank Barb for the great idea, what a difference working with the stabilizer - it makes such a difference......

Here are the first 3 blocks together......7th row center!  Looking good, I'm getting excited!
 A bit of a closer look and if you click on the photo you should be able to see the blanket stitch I'm doing around the edges of the applique in the center block.....
 I only have to edge another 24 blocks, 96 more appliques and I'll be done that phase of the project!  I did manage to put a small dent into it tonight and will continue with it tomorrow night I hope......I am really getting psyched about getting this quilt top done!

However, I am tired and tomorrow is another day, and I want to take advantage of the drugs to get some sleep - so I'll bid you all good night!

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Awesome - Jo - GREAT focusing. Very proud of you!!!!! Did the house sell?????

  2. Keeping fingers crossed for you. (If I cross my toes I walk funny :-)) Being in limbo is no fun. Make the close quick and you can get on with life, and quilting, and the store, and...well you get the idea.
    Good luck, see you soon
