Flying Geese Quilt

It's that time again...Sew N' Tell Friday!!

Here is an update on my "Cloudy Day" Quilt.
I am finished with all the flying geese. I'm going to attache a second border, I just can't decide if I should use the half square triangles or just a plain border. hmmmm, decisions, decisions.
And then I made this shirt from a simplicity pattern.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction.
