What I'm working on......

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a good week.
It's been a really busy week for me, and I've been fighting a bad cold too.
I'm in good spirits though, as I've been able to do some sewing.
My oldest son turned 20 this week.
Crazy!!!! I know!!!
We had a nice dinner to celebrate!

But back to sewing.
I'm working on a new project.
It's the Old Tobacco Road Mystery Quilt by Bonnie K. Hunter found here.
In September, I had gotten back to my sewing and started cutting my scraps up into usable sizes.
Then, one night I started sewing up four patches with my 2 inch squares as shown here.
Well, I started looking for patterns to use them up.
And that's how I decided on this quilt.
Here is my progress....

As you can see, I'm progressing very well.
I have 12 rows sewn together.
The rest of the rows are just on the floor ready to be sewn on.
But, do to this cold I'm fighting, I can only work on it in little bits.
I'm really excited about how its coming together. 

I hope you like it.
