I love my work space

I love it more when it looks like I have been working in it which I have been doing of late.  During the last two weeks I have been working on the quilt seen on the design wall.  I am happy to say that it is done all but having a facing applied and those sleeves which is the my least favorite part of  making quilts. 
 I told my friend Peggy on the phone yesterday that I would more likely than not roll the quilt up and put it in the closet at this point if it were not a commissioned piece and I still might if the person it was made for does not like it.
I was pleased to get an e-mail from my customer first thing this morning saying that she loved it and wanted to know how soon I could send it.  So with that I will be spending a few hours of my life facing and putting on sleeves.
Before that  and after I deliver the visiting grand-daughter (Olivia) to gymnastic camp I am going to do a little tidying up of my work space. I  should have  enough time after that to cut the strips and maybe machine sew on the facing.  Then I am off to lunch with a friend from Louisville, KY who is visiting Florida with her daughter.  We will meet for lunch at Crispers, one of my favorite places to eat, in one of my favorite sections of central Florida (Winter Park).
Medical report:  Went to the cardio doctor on Monday and was given a good report.  Have also lost 18 pounds during the last two months which he was very happy about.  Gone are the days of me indulging my love of ice cream by the bowlful.  Most of my food comes from the fresh veggie and fruit section anymore.
My HQ is almost set up but I have not turned it on to see how I like sewing on it.  That will come as soon as the commissioned piece is packed and ready to ship.

Piece measures 50 " wide by 39" long  No Name yet.
