Froggy Flannel Finish

I honestly hate Texas weather.  Only in this great state of ours can temperatures range in the 80s to 90s in October.  It's just unnatural.  Thankfully, we're experiencing cooler weather since a front's blown in.  That ought to crank the mercury down to, oh I don't know, the 70s maybe.  Whoop-dee-do!

I'm finishing up the last of the flannel squares I'd cut up for rag quilts.  Oh, the joy of sewing flannel with these crazy temperatures AND hot flashes.  It's almost too much fun to be legal.  I wonder if this is what hell is like. 

Here's what I finished this week...

I keep hoping a quilt fairy (or a Co-Defendant) will happen along and offer to do all the clipping on these babies for me.  Luckily I'm not holding my breath.  I've discovered that nothing makes clipping go faster than having to sit through a movie of the Co-Defendant's choosing (think Balto or Snow Buddies).  That or baseball, take your pick.  After running this one through the old wash and dry, I discovered an entire row that missed getting the snip, so it was snip some more and back through the wash and dry again.  And voila!  It's done.

Still in progress:
* the cross-stitch kit that's been a WIP for ten years (no, I'm not joking) that lacks just a few more lines of alphabet to move from WIP to finished

* Captain Studly's Albatross quilt has been quilted and is waiting for me to get the binding cut.  Do I have any volunteers?  *crickets chirping*  I'll take that as a 'no'. 

On that note, it's back to the grind sewing machine for me.  I can honestly. never. die...there's too much still to sew!
