A sneak peak!!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well.
Yesterday, I rested most of the day.
I was really exhausted.
I just needed a really good sleep.
So, I had a late morning nap, and I felt so, so much better after.

I decided to quilt my Little Red Dresden quilt.
It took me about 5 hours to quilt it.
I had to take a break to pick up the kids from school.
Then, my dogs got out of the gate in the back yard.
I took us about 30 minutes to find them.
Good thing they were still together.
Their tongues were hanging out and
they were just strolling around the neighbourhood,
 on a grand adventure
Then I had to make supper.

It was pretty late when I finally finished quilting it.
But, now I just have to put the binding on and it will be done.

There's a lot of quilting in this quilt.
I tried different patterns that I hadn't done before.
And considering I did it on my old White sewing machine,
It turned out quite nice.
I really like it.

Well, I'm keeping you in suspense about how the finished product looks.
I'm keeping the reveal for a special post.

I hope you all have a great day.
