Almost there ...

... with the Road to Arkansas top - I've put three narrow borders on - another two to go but I've kind of lost impetus - too much scrabbling on the floor to measure.

I've also joined the Doll Quilt Swap, Amy posted about the first one a while ago but I missed the deadline for signing up. This time round it seems very popular and I'm really looking forward to seeing all the different quilts that people make. If you want to join the swap, sign-up is open until June 17th.

This week the door fell off our (built-in) fridge, I left my debit card in a shop and the flush mechanism on our (one and only) toilet stopped working. But ... I got these shirts in a charity shop sale for 50p each.

The shirts are definitely the bright side. I've had weeks like that. I've even left my purse in a shopping cart in a parking lot before. Our brains are empty--- they are WAY TOO full. Next week will be better. Love the quilt.

Shirts like that can make any day brighter! The quilt top is coming along great - the boarders are really pulling it together!

Sounds like you've had some challenges this week. That quilt! I've loved it ever since I stumbled upon it in your blog a few months ago! It is looking great! I'm anxious to see how you are going to quilt it. Don't give up now! I may want to make a similar one.

Ouch! Sounds like you've had a rough week -- luckily your quilt is absolutely beautiful! Love the colors in that one and in your op shop finds. Here's to hoping next week is much better!
