Oh, Happy's twins!

Hmm, looks like it may be a miserable day.....I think that means a bit more relaxing with needle and thread today!

I've had a lot of binding to do, but this morning I indulged with stitching on some circles for the border of my Happy Days quilt...

I think I'm down to seven out of the 24 needed for the border.

I've never looked at the blocks together on the design wall yet so I put them out to see how the whole thing is coming along...

Not sure what I think...but I'm sure it will all work in the end....I hope!!! I still have perhaps three blocks to do and 24 6" Ohio star blocks as fillers. 

This quilt is Sarah Fielke's 2016 BOM. I'd really like to finish the blocks before starting on her 2017 BOM, Down the Rabbit Hole, which has just started.

As for family news....I'm so pleased and proud to introduce the newest members of our family....our twin grandbabies who were born on Friday...

I know, I know...all babies are cute....but, really, aren't they just adorable!?

While waiting for news on Friday, I managed to get the second quilt top done for the twins. I hope today to have some time to slip them onto the longarm and get them quilted quickly.

I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching and with Cynthia for Oh Scrap!.

I hope you can take some time to do a bit of slow stitching today!
