I am happy to report I finished the hand sewing on the binding for the queen sized quilt from the boxed squares swap some years back. Now it just needs a label. I am on a mission to finish as many UFO's as I can.

I think I heard that happy sigh all the way to Ohio.

It's such a good feeling when the last stitch goes in a finished binding and you sit back and give the quilt a fond pat ....

So true Judy.  It was a 5 session marathon to get the binding hand sewn. That took longer than the quilting because I did an edge to edge freemotion design and it was on and off the machine in two days. I will get a photo later. 

I hope to make more progress on the 3" nine patch on the longarm....that one is taking forever but I am delighted it is finally seeing the light of day after 20 or so years in the UFO bin.

I got my Moderna booster shot  yesterday and today I am having a "brisk reaction" (my DH's words) which is a good thing (again, my DH's words). 

My neck aches, my shoulders ache and I feel like I should either take a very long hot shower with my neck and shoulders being pummeled under a steady stream of very warm water or I should just pile a bunch of quilts over my  head and neck area and hide from the world.

You can bet your bippy I am not going to cook supper tonight.

Moan, groan and gripe and sigh ....

I  never get much sympathy from a physician husband, that's for sure.  LOL

Sorry you are feeling bad after your shot. I was in bed a day and a half after my second vaccine with a fever and a terrible headache. Kinda in a fetal position wishing the pain would go away.

We both ate bowls of cereal for supper tonight.

That's one way to lose some weight.  LOL

I must have missed that swap.  Maybe I'll see it in person one day.

Haven't got my booster yet.  I'll get it when I get home.  Haven't had much of a reaction from the original 2.

I did not have any reaction at all to the first two shots. 

The booster gave me a jolt that hit on the second day and made me miserable but DH gave me one of his prednisone pills that he routinely takes for his RA and that has eased my misery. I see a good recovery from the aches and pains in my shoulder and neck by tomorrow.

My goal is to bring that as one if my show and tell at retreat. It is one of favorite quilts and I am enjoying seeing the finish line on this one.
