Cot quilting

I love that Dolly Parton song, "Working 9 to 5" and at the moment that sums up my life!  My new job is a blessing I am grateful for, but it is playing havoc with my sewing output.  Well that and a month of busy weekends where my volunteer commitments demanded time and we had two lots of visitors.  I literally unpacked my machine after sewing in Bordertown to sew on the border and then in the same night I managed to piece the backing and wadding.
  And then it sat and sat while I waited for the opportunity to pin it.  I had hoped to attend my night group but between cooking dinner, homework and after school activities it hasn't happened yet.  Finally on Sunday (after our visitors left) I got the chance.
I started quilting in the ditch around the triangles.  Boring but just the mindless sewing I needed in the company of friends so I could forget about all the other things I probably should have been doing...like housework!  
Happy quilting Sue.
