A Finish!
Another little Two Happy quilt, this time in pink!  
I love all these bright colors, again completely from my stash except for the backing. 
Found a pink and orange floral that was too cute to pass up.
 Made for donation to Project Linus.

Then...while starting a new project- cute little wonky squares- from a vintage Strawberry Shortcake valance I found at Goodwill...while threading the needle (insert scary music) I accidentally stepped on the pedal and 
Oh my goodness! It could have been much worse, but it was pretty bad. I had to reverse the machine to back the needle out. YIKES! It didn't go all the way through, but it bruised the other side. Two days of Neosporin and a lot of sympathy from family and friends, it's all good. Just two tiny poke holes.

Anyway, these little goody bags are for my birthday lunch at Hibachi this afternoon:
A girl only turns 46 once, right?

Ouch! Hope your finger feels much better now.

That little pink quilt is just gorgeous!
So lucky with that finger of yours. I was quilting once, and forgot to take out a pin. The needle pierced the pin right through, so the mind just boggles to think what it may have done to your finger.
Hope that finger is better soon.
