Lots of progress to share!

I hope you have each had a wonderful week.  I really appreciated your feedback on last weeks post !!!  You all spoke and we listened!!!!
 Above is a more narrow valance to use over her window ... it will be quilted and layered with batting to protect it from sunlight :)

But this progress is a surprising show of events...
 Amelie's banner is done !!!  The fabric showed up Monday and my gears started moving and soon me and Cleopatra were sewing it into a banner of sorts :)
The recipient, daughter of my post office dude, loves it as does mom and dad (who celebrate Halloween all year round!!!)... pic of the room will be coming :)
Linking this finish to Wendy's Peacock Party HERE

Linking to the Crafty Quilter's UFO Link Up HERE as this has been on the list for 6 months to get done!!!!

I have spent a good bit of the week hand quilting on Connie's Swoon Quilt...
 Above I finished the center swoon... in the center :)

Below I have the right side center to finish and the outer right border to complete... that will get some of my undivided attention today :)
Jasper's quilt got finished with the machine quilting and the binding got applied to the front!!!
 Now Cleopatra finally gets a rest!!!!
 Molly is inspecting the finished quilt as I work on the binding...
 Sewing it down... here is the hand fashioned label that needs a date added to it :)
Linking this and swoon quilting to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitchers where we share what hand stitching we plan to be doing this day... HERE!!!  She has a lovely post today to to share!!!
