Finished! YEAH!

I finished another quilt top! I totally rock. I hope to get one more done as quickly as I can manage. Anyway, the one I just finished is designed by Kari Nichols (my old manager at Quilt in the Attic, now Holly's Quilt Cabin) and it's called County Lines. There are tons of great Mountainpeek patterns here.
Isn't it pretty? I like it. If, and I mean IF I can get it quilted and bound in time this is for Brain and Rhea as a wedding present. I'd like to put a request out there to all my friends and family... Could you please stop getting married and having kids for a while so I can catch up and maybe make a few things for myself! (Selfish aren't I?)

The best news on the "finished" front is our house in Denver! It is finally all done! YES!!!! Ben has a few good pictures of the house but some of the pictures are from right before they finished painting and putting up molding. We are going to give it at shot at selling it, again, but we have little faith (sorry Ben) that the house will actually sell given the current market. I would think that it'd be very desirable. The interior of the home is almost all brand new and it comes with a 5 year warranty on all the work that was done. There are things that people want in our house that we can't give them. There is no big back yard (I think that means less yard work!) and there's no garage but there is off street parking. Oh well. We'll give it a few months listed and then we'll rent it. I'd just like to not have to deal with it anymore. We moved out of the house 10 months ago after all.

I can't believe you've been gone for 10 months...
The house and the quilt both look great! :)

Why thank you!

I asked Ben to put up new pictures so you can see how good it really looks. I'll let you all know when the pics are updated.

Lovely county lines :-)

I'll cross my fingers for the house selling...
