Rosie's copy didn't sell at her daughter's boutique but I am going to save it for next year's boutique.
I have started the 2nd side of the binding on the Mystical Horses quilt. I am looking forward to hanging that on my quilt rack.

I am really tired tonight so I am going to call it a day!

I also trimmed and sewed on the binding by machine for the Mystical Horse quilt. All 300 inches of binding. I didn't take a picture of that. I am taking both of these quilts with me while I stay on the west side of town for work. I'll have a nice project to work on in the evenings.
The big thing was to update one of my pages on my blog, Quilt Classes I Teach. I had a list of my classes but no pictures, now I have added pictures and a little story about each class. Next I'll update my page, The Quilts I Designed.
Hopefully this will make my blog more interesting for readers and followers.

Last Sunday I decorated for Halloween about Wednesday my Mr. B. said to me, "What is that Man on the Horse?" Of course I had no idea what he was talking about, I was in another room when he asked. The other question was when did you put him there. Of course I explain he was the Grim Reaper and he has been sitting there since Sunday. You can never accuse my Mr. B. of being too observant. You can see the picture of the Grim Reaper here.
This week I spent mostly doing machine quilting. I finished quilting my Mystical Horse quilt. That is a good feeling. I have been working on this for a long time. I'll add the binding in the coming week and take it to Jane's house while I am working on the West side of town next week. The hand sewing will keep me busy in the evenings.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I used King Tut thread color # 935, it is variegated teal, purple, bright green and a blue.
My friend Rosie has a quilt she wanted me to quilt so she can sell it in a boutique next weekend. I used Rose King Tut variegated thread on this quilt and it looks very nice.
