But I did not ditch the quilting completely. I pulled another pig from the poke and worked on 200 Flying Geese units. Yes 200! They are part of the pieced sashing for my Underground RR quilt. Now I know why it ended up in the UFO container!! But the units are done and I am ready to join them together. I have also been knitting. Finished a hat for my DH that finally meets his approval and I am now knitting together bits of yarn that are left over in strips to be put together eventually into an afghan while I wait for my new circular needles for a shawl kit I bought and for my instruction book on socks. Yes, I am going to take the plunge and try socks.
My machines will be picked up tomorrow and hopefully that lap quilt will get finished! I have also ordered a new machine, a 16" mid arm which will arrive in about 8 weeks. It fits on my existing fram and I'm excited to have more space to quilt!
Our 27th anniversary is Saturday. Doesn't feel like we've been together that long. I guess that's a good sign. LOL!! We will spend this one quietly. Dinner and a movie.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I promise pics of my URR progress after the weekend.!

And here is Bella! This picture was taken last week. She is such a cutie and that's not just an Auntie bragging!
Lastly, my weekend project. This is the Fall lap quilt I made for my DH two years ago. It's one of the Pigs from the Poke and it will be quilted this weekend. I used a flannel backing so it will keep him toasty warm.
