First, I quilted this Strips and Strings log cabin top. It’s #5 of 10 I want to get quilted before the end of March. Pantograph is Apollo.

And then I pieced another top for our 3 yard challenge. A Quick Strippie.

It’s a dreary, rainy day here but luckily I’ve got the treadmill now so I still got my walk in … or should I say walks?! I like doing shorter walks on the treadmill otherwise it gets kind of boring so I did 16 minutes after quilting the log cabin top and 17 minutes after piecing the Strippie and closed my exercise ring for the day.


  1. My husband either reads a physical book or listens to an audio book. I personally listen to mindless TV when I am able to use the treadmill. The view doesn’t change so it is dull without something in the background.

  2. I find treadmilling quite boring, too. Our neighborhood is a circle, so we try to make three rounds spaced out through the morning for a mile a day. When I do treadmill, I watch cooking shows on TV. Not the best for the diet but they keep me going.

  3. Good job on getting your walks done! That monkey Strippee just made me want to giggle – so adorable!!!
