Fall Finish

I Finished binding this wall hanging last night while watching the Dallas Cowboys get pummeled by the Greenbay Packers - a very satisfying night all around! I have had this panel for about 5 years, maybe more? and was going to cut out parts of it to decorate some small canvas bags, but obviously, never got around to it! I "won" the pretty fall fabric around the panel at the guild's silent auction last month, and was determined to do something with it "sooner" vs my typical "later" so it was nice to finally use some old fabric while I was at it. I still have more of the fall fabric left and am in the midst of more projects with that. I am trying to catch up on my long arming this week. The children's activities have been overwhelming lately, my son's High School Marching Band just had their final competition on Saturday which they won and now they are enjoying their status as completely undefeated this year, the first time in their school's history! (The high school is only 15 yrs old) My daughter also competed Saturday, but in figure skating and she competed in two new routines and placed second in both! It seems time is flying too fast! Back to the sewing room - Happy Quilting!
