Two Quick Things

My new bed quilt top complete!
I finished piecing a quilt top that will be for my own bed!  I'm hoping to get it basted tonight and, if I'm in the mood for a wrestling match, start quilting all 90"x102"of it!

House we're considering
Also, USAA just sent me a check to cover all the expenses we incurred due to their massive error!  All I did was report the problem to the manager in charge of the pre-approval department and voila, money!  It wasn't a small amount either so I'm really surprised we didn't have to get a lawyer involved.  I was all prepared to have the JAG department write a nasty letter, but I guess USAA realized they were getting off easy since it could have been a *lot* more money.  Hooray!  We now have a house (we closed February 2nd) and a resolution from USAA.  Miracles do happen!

don't those flannels feel so luxurious? i am making AMH's log mansion (though I made it a bit bigger) and while it is all basted, I am delaying the quilting because it is about 85 x 85 and I am not up for the wrestling match... perhaps you can inspire me because right now doing hours of hand quilting is looking more appealing...

Yes - USAA made a mistake, but they sure corrected it quickly.... OK - they can't correct it but did what they could after the fact without hassle. Have you forgiven them?

Awesome. I'm so glad it worked out, K! And the quilt-in-progress looks lovely!
