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!

Gratitudes:
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.
