She's a good girl, loves her Sandra
Loves quilt alongs, and being caught up too
She's a good girl crazy 'bout kittens
Loves puppies and quilty Dave too
And I'm free, Freefalling!
Yeah I'm free, Freefalling!
Okay, so maybe those are not the words to the song but I just had to and I'll warn you now, the quilt along isn't over and me doing that probably isn't either.
Today, I'm just quickly checking in and linking up with Sandra's Freefall QAL over at mmm!quilts. The linky party is open all week and we are all anxiously awaiting the next set of instructions on Monday. Never to late to join in the fun, obviously there is good music along with it :)

As I am working through my QAL's I am also feverishly quilting my and David's quilts for our upcoming pattern release. Since am almost finished quilting his baby quilt version and my neighbors (my mom) left their garage door open when they left, I quietly borrowed their garage and tables to baste my quilt.
His quilt lay neatly folded with the backing facing up (Thank God!) on my HQ Sweet Sixteen. When I returned from my basting adventure (I was in and out like a ninja) I discovered one of the cats had thrown up on his quilt! OH THE HORROR!!!!!
Jen, being the best daughter ever, cleaned the mess up for me, since I was frozen in a mixture of panic, anger, fear, sadness and a few other emotions that haven't yet been identified. Sadly, what was left was a yellowish stain.
After I came out of my frozen state and re-animated, I did the only thing I could do...Shout. I shouted at the cats, I shouted at the sky. Then I realized there might be more proactive shouting to be done. I grabbed the bottle of stain remover and generously applied it to the spot....and walked away.
I am happy to report when I checked on it this morning, it does look like the stain has lightened quite a bit. I plan on finishing this up ASAP tonight so I can pop it in the wash. Did I mention how happy I am it's the back of the quilt and not the front?
That's it for me, back to getting projects finished up. Hope everyone is having a great quilting week.
