The top is finished

I finished the borders today. I still need to press and square the top, but I'll do that when I'm ready to quilt it. I did make up the binding today and it's pressed and ready, but I still need to put the backing together. I don't want this one to lanquish too long, but I also want to get some other things done soon. I have a punch needle project I have to finish before Saturday and another small quilt I need to work on, plus I still haven't done my bom for this month.
I'm going to a one-day retreat on Saturday - a yearly thing by invitation only and I'm looking forward to it. I want to have a couple of projects prepped to take along -- I think one will be some strings for the heartstrings project and another will be a quilt I started there last year and put aside because it wasn't coming out the way I'd planned, so I need to figure out what to do with it and get it done!

The winter storm wasn't quite as bad as projected.
The washer and dryer.
The digital camera and the laptop -- having some problems with the pc, so it's nice to have the laptop to fall back on.
