It's Day 17 of my 31 Day Challenge.  I was really hoping to get an early start today.  This morning, as I was looking around the house, I was faced with a decision.  Go down stairs and start quilting right away and clean the house later or clean the house now and then go down and quilt....knowing me, I knew if I went downstairs I would get some good hours of quilting in and get so into it that the house would have been cleaned the house up pretty good and then started quilting.  There's nothing worse than coming up stairs, after a couple of hours of quilting, to a messy house! I made a good choice.

I did get some quilting in and then was surprised by a phone call from my friend Pam who said she was taking me and Toby to lunch, her treat.  We had Thai and it was yummy and just what I needed, I nice little break.   Thanks Pam!  I cherish our friendship!

I wanted to share a tip with you about those dark pesty threads that seem to find themselves trapped under fabric.

Do you see the one above.  A while ago I shared a tip on how I remove these pesty threads.   I love it when others share tips and so I wanted to share one of my tips today.

I was really hoping to get this quilt done today....but it didn't happen.  That's okay, I'm looking forward to tomorrow and definitely an earlier start!  It's Saturday and the kids can clean the house tomorrow!! ;o)

...also, I'm feeling a little anxious...I was counting down actual quilting days until my challenge is over and I'm not sure I'm going to make it.  I've got some commitments this next week and I'm going to be loosing a couple of quilting day's.  I'll just keep at it and see how it go's.

...and I'm REALLY missing, piecing and playing with my ruler, but I came across Leslie's quilt she posted today, using the ruler and there has been some great new Urban Nine Patch's posted on the Flikr Group, you should go check them out and let them know what you think, they would love that and so thanks to these great quilts, I've got my little ruler fix in, even if they're not my own, it's just as fun and exciting for me!!
