Australia Day

When I first came to live in USA, I used to hang my big Aussie parade flag out front on January 26th, but I haven't done that in a long time. I have two good friends whose birthdays are today, & mine & two other friends will be Tuesday.
I got my mystery quilt laid out on the guest bed & Khris looked at the pic. & pointed out that I had an hour glass block turned around in one of the Ohio stars so I have just a little ripping to do!
I was hoping that some eagle eyed quilter would find any anomolies & someone did. I would have been irritated if I had already sewn the blocks together, though the Amish always put a mistake in their quilts because only God is perfect- I can always use that as an excuse for my errors!
Yesterday I finished up the second of two baby quilts & sewed the binding on the sudoku, just have to do the hand sewing & that will be the third UFO for 2008. Next I really want to quilt my oldest UFO, a KS Lover's Knot from 1986! I think I have finally decided how to quilt it & I'm planning on using the technique from Kim Stotsenberg's book "Just Leaf It".
Well, I did begin sewing the rows of blocks in the Mystery quilt , I think I have almost a third together & it's exciting to see it come together. I'm so very pleased that all my scrappiness looks as well as it does.
I had to stop to go to the movies with DH-I wouldn't recommend "Untraceable"-much too suspenseful, violent & graphic for me ,very scary, so much so that I kept leaving my seat to hang out in the lobby! Walt kept dozing off, at least for the first half. Wish I could have, LOL.

You know the only reason I saw it was because I had all mine around the wrong way until somebody else pointed it out and I had a lot of ripping to do...agghhhh...hugs Khris
