What is SKOU you ask?  It is Some Kind of Ugly.  I had good intentions with this quilt.  But I think it's one of the ugliest quilts I've ever seen.  Friends have assured me that someone will love it, and I hope they're right.  On Friday night, for FNSI, I finished the binding.

Poor lighting late at night.  This is all in pink.

I took a break from my quilting and binding blitz to go to the shore for a couple of days.  We did some wildflower hiking, beach walking, picture taking, touring, and pony watching.

I've been to three sewing groups since I returned, but none of my projects are finished.  If all goes according to plan tomorrow, there WILL be finishes!

There was a mourning dove on our deck this morning and it caught the attention of the girls.  They're used to seeing squirrels and smaller birds, but the doves don't often get on the deck.  They're down below eating what the other birds and squirrels drop on the ground!

Happy Sewing........Sunny
