Stuck - Stuck - Stuck

I love this quilt -
 But....
(you could tell a "but" was coming couldn't you?)
 
But I'm STUCK.  I may love the simplicity of this quilt but I need it to be bigger to be more useful.
  
It has set in my drawer for years waiting for an answer.
 
Borders?  No Borders and live with it being too short?  It's 50 by 60.
 
This morning I was working on it before going to work. 
And yes, that is my foot. :-)
 
Neptune came over and laid on it.  I didn't see her and accidentally stepped on her nose.  Yikes!!  No more quilts the same colors as my doggies!
She wasn't hurt, thank goodness. 

Help!  What are your thoughts?

Hanging by a Thread,

Super Easy way to Update a Tee Shirt

What you are about to see will not blow your mind. 
It will however give Troy the styling that he's known for.
 
The New and Improved T-shirt.
 
Rosanna (that's my daughter) added a pocket to Troy's t-shirt.
 To be in style this pocket needs to be of a different print.
 Simple enough, don't you think?
And here's the little man.  He looks quite pleased with it.

Do you think he knows that he's cute? 
No, not yet.  But he will some day.  And then heaven help us!

Let me know if you see this new style around, or if you add some pockets to your shirts.

Happy Stitching,

Linda

Done and Done (Flower Wreath Wall Hanging)

 I'm Done! I'm Done! I'm Done!!!
(Can you tell I'm excited?) And I've even turned in my entry form to the County Fair.
May I say there is just nothing like having a finished project to make you want to run down to the Quilt Store and buy 10 more projects!
 
I totally loved doing the swirls on the little quilt.  I'm still surprised.  When I originally started making quilts I did not even want to learn to free motion quilt much less do something intrique like that.
 
I have go now and blask in the joy of my finished project. 
 
Before I leave - here's a picture of Little Baby Lily and her cat, Hobbs.

 
Happy Stitching
and Kitty Cuddling if you've got one.

P.S.  This is one of my goals for Finish Along Qtr 3 (Yea!)
