Almost done....

Pin wheel quilt
I've been sewing up a storm on the pin wheel quilt all day.  There is  almost 2 km of thread in the quilting alone on this thing!  Now I'm sitting in front of the TV hand sewing the binding, almost done, almost done..  I'll show it to you as soon as it's done.

I also got a package in the mail (I really love getting packages in the mail!), it was a book I ordered.  And what a wonderful book!

Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Romance

 I've been drooling over it all day, it even got to go with me to the bathroom!  His colors are not my colors, but I love the way he uses them.

Speaking of sewing binding... do you know what this is?
Alaska native thimble
It's a thimble made of seal skin.  I bought it at a store in Anchorage, Alaska last summer.  It's just a tad too big for my finger, but it works great.  It can be worn for hours on end unlike metal and plastic thimbles. 

Well, back to the binding!
