One decision made

Three things to be happy about:
(1) cheddar-pepper muffins
(2) your favorite old quilt
(3) drifting off to sleep

A few days ago I showed you my first quilt, this trip around the world.  I was debating how to finish it off but the more I thought about it, the more I realized it's not worth the effort of picking out the quilting and redoing it "properly".  Besides, I quilted it with invisible thread!

Since the backing was wide enough, I decided to trim away the excess batting, fold the backing to the front and top stitch it with a decorative stitch.  I believe that's all the loving care this little quilt needs.

I ended up with a handful of trimmings...

Since my UFO #3 was AWOL, I'll consider this one a substitute.  It won't take long at all to finish this off!

The snow we got was just enough to make the roadway slippery on some side streets.  Unfortunately I live on the shady side of my street, so the sun didn't have a chance to melt much of it in front of my house.  It would have been nice not to have to shovel!  I poked my head outside about a hour ago - windy and cold!  I pulled it back in, quickly.
