Almost done.......

I finished quilting the table topper the other night. I am now working on the strips for the binding to go around the edges. This is the part I don't think I will like very much. I went to the gym this morning for my two classes. Yesterday I woke up feeling exhausted. I showered and got dressed to go to the gym and felt so wiped out that I decided not to go. I had invited some friends for dinner and didn't want to cancel so I just rested in the morning and our two husbands went fishing so I vacuumed the house and went to the store for a few items I needed for dinner. The dinner turned out really good (Stuffed Shells, Antipasto Salad, and Cheesy Garlic Bread) and we even played some cards after dinner. It's so fun to get together with friends.

I have to get busy now and finish my laundry and then I have to go to the store for a couple of things for tonight's dinner. Taco Salad. Yum! It's so nice to be able to eat whatever I want even with the LapBand. I just can't eat the quantity I used to. And there are a few things I have trouble eating such as really fibrous foods like fresh pineapple or some pastas like angel hair. But most of my favorites I can still eat.

Binding is definitely my most un-favorite part of quilting!

It's great you are doing so well with the quilt. Hope the binding isn't as bad as you are anticipating. It is nice getting together with friends for dinner and cards. Glad you can enjoy your favorites.

Dinner sounded delicious...as for the taco salad, I remember in high school taco salad was one of my favorite things...of course, theirs was a simplified version. Good luck with the binding, maybe it won't be as bad as it seems. Take care, Sheila

Dinner sounds wonderful..
Quilting sounds like fun.
I still have a quilt my mom had someone make for me.

I love quilting! I am so jealous you can still eat just about everything. I have quite a few problem foods on my list--especially eggs, which I used to eat every day!

I never like putting the binding on either. I usually save that to work on in front of the TV. But I'm always so happy when my quilt is finished.
