I have been busy studying my boat permit so I haven't had lots of time to sew or quilt.  I did do a little sewing on my binding, but it still isn't finished.  Tomorrow I have class all afternoon and will probably be home very late, it is the last class before my exam.  In french when you wish someone luck for a test or something very important you say to them "merde"  which I am sure you know what it means!!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend....
