Sunshine is Done

Meg's Ray of Sunshine is officially done. I will deliver it this afternoon after the kids are done with Odyssey of the Mind. They all want to come to the hospital because they think it sounds like fun. I think the last time any of them was at a hopsital was when Sydney was born. I'm sure it seemed like fun then. I'm going to try to come up with another plan for them. 
I used a pantograph for the quiling, it was called Dandy and I got it in a packet from Golden Threads. I used yellow thread in the middle and then switched to green for the border and quilted parallel lines on the DSM.
I love the way the back turned out with all the signatures.   
I made Lizzie pose for a photo while I was working on the binding.  Meg has owns of her siblings from an earlier litter, so obviously she is a pug person.  
So now I am off to do the usual Sunday things.  Laundry is started and the kitchen is scary.  I'm afraid to go upstairs, but down here looks reasonably clean.  I've got a test to grade and had better get started on comments for interims.  I think they are due on Tuesday.  Add OM and a trip to deliver the quilt and I think that will make up the day. Hope all is well out there.  I do plan to indulge in a little time today seeing what everyone got done on Scrap Happy Saturday.  I've still got some blue projects hanging out that I would like to  finish off or clean up so I can switch gears and get ready for a new color and a new month!
