Am I here???

I am using Windows Live Writer to write my post today as I am still unable to upload any pics from my pc.
So here goes, Ive been working on my Pies and Tarts and Lancaster quilt….

I am a little behind the other girls with my Lancaster quilt. I ironed the seams using a spray starch and took out my papers as I needed more to complete the borders… and never got around to buying more….this way I dont have 100’s of paper pieces in all different shapes.
