Too much for one post!

Alright I am just going to say this up front. I have way too much to say for one post! First, I finished the chenille blanket for my friend's grandbaby.

I posted a tutorial about how to make this over on my website, in case you are interested.
I also finished the Monster Rag quilt. I do need to label it but no baby yet so no label until that happens as I want to put the baby's name on the label. I am going to write up a tutorial on how to make that too, but when I get a minute, later. For now, here are a few pics. Front and back.

He is the Egg Monster and so adorable!
Isn't he adorable?
I hope the baby will love this as much as I do!

Now to let you know. I spent about 7 hours with LTW and the Statler and quilted my entire quilt!! I have some photos to share with you but have to go and do a little more work at my real job, so that's all for now, more soon.

I think I forgot to tell you, I lost another 4.5 inches which totals 38" overall since beginning my weight loss journey. When you see the pics from the farm you will notice I still have some ways to go though, LOL!! I can't imagine how awful they would have been before I lost those 40 pounds!! UGH!!!

First of all....congratulations on the inches lost!!!

Secondly, those quilts are wonderful. I love the chenille quilts and the rag one will be so welcomed by the new baby.

You are the weight loss/inches machine!! I LOVE rag quilts and have made a bazillion (slight exageration!) of them and it's the only baby donation quilt I make! It's so much fun taking them out of the dryer!

Great quilts and great weight loss. I am sure the little one will love that quilt. No doubt about it.
