Slow finishings

     Due to a sudden knee pain attack out of nowhere, I have slowed moving down to a crawl. Lots of ice. Finally have a doctor appointment tomorrow at 7 am. Sharp pain has hobbled my ability to concentrate and focus. 
     I finished my son in law's pillow, 18", made from fabric he picked out this summer when I bought all the flannel pillowcase fabrics for Christmas presents. I FMQ it with some Kona white backing and batting to give the cover dimension. I made an overlapped back so the cover could be washed. I used a pillowform from Joann's to stuff it. I decided to do the quilting by circling the words in a graffiti type stitch, not trying to make it all even. I like the way the quilting turned out. For his man cave.

      I was able to make and get the binding on the Disappearing Hourglass quilt. I used some leftover Marcia Derse fabric that I love.

I hope the knee gets better quickly. I like the quilt.

Love the pillow and the quilt finish. But the knee? Oh boy, I sure hope it is not a major thing and hope it can be taken care of soon. Saying prayers for healing.

Love the pillow fabric - but not the news about the knee - as you can imagine I sympathise! Good luck with the doctor appointment, let us know the verdict please. One good thing is that you have the binding on Disappearing Hourglass.

PERFECT pillow for a Man Cave!! Hope your knee feels better soon. Cortisone shot, perhaps? Your Disappearing Hourglass quilt is lovely! That pattern is on my list of quilts to make... some day.
