I Just Want Your Extra Time…

Cozyegg Kiss Kiss Quilt

Remember that time, a million years ago, when I shared my almost-finished Kiss Kiss quilt top? You know, the one I worked on at a weekend retreat? At the end of that weekend, I only needed to sew my borders on for the top to be finished. So, a couple weeks after that retreat I settled in at my brand new work surface/desk top to get those borders on.
