I have no will power. I don't want to get up in the mornings and I'm wanting to nap most of the day and and and... I guess I've already got the winter problems and it hasn't even frozen yet. We still even have bugs. Those nasty beetle t... Read more

The challenge quilt is hard. Maybe I'll just put together the fancy squares in pillow shape and call it good. The challenge is to use the birthday squares. The didn't say I had to use them all just use them. I finished the block for July tod... Read more

Now that I can't sit outside any longer and at least say hi to people walking past or my neighbors coming home from work it's getting awfully quiet in my life again. I almost finished the July block today. It's laying on the sewing table with ... Read more
Going with the least stressfull

Even today when I ran around with errands all morning and really didn't get down to working on quilts until almost 3 I still got 3 more blocks finished and made all the pieces to the last July block of the month. I did find June and it's not do... Read more

This whole challenge quilt has been a problem ever since I started it. Making them was too stressful. It was agony to have my thread breaking so often it took hours to finish one. So after a challenging one today I decided to stop putting th... Read more

It seems my moods are directly linked to the weather right now. I do have the light to sit under and will read under it some days but this rain is getting to be too much. Part of the day today you would have thought it was almost sundown. Day... Read more

I made another round of squares for the challenge quilt today along with getting the pieces of a block ready to work on. I always starch them so they don't stretch when I sew them because some of the pieces are so little. Buck is having ... Read more

When I ran into town quick this morning for the 2 things I needed it was already 82 and it got hotter and more humid as the day went on. Needless to say there were no walks today. The itching has been replaced with breathing problems. But all... Read more

Maybe it's allergies or maybe I'm just not all "with it" but today wasn't great. It got warmer as the day went on and now we are having thunder storms. Buck thinks I should be holding him in my lap and Peanut is hiding under the couch. As for... Read more

I did make the fronts of the Minnesota pillows but didn't get the applique done before it started getting to dark to work with black thread. My old eyes just can't do the same things they did even 20 years ago. But they are all cut and ready t... Read more

I woke up a mess this morning and didn't even go get my hair done. Then I slept until almost 1 pm. No idea why I'm so tired and cold. It was kind of cloudy and grey all day but I did make myself to go town and get some groceries. Some things... Read more

I have one of those old 1940's house that's built like a bunker. It usually stays pretty cool even in the high heat and with the AC on even at 78 sometimes it feels like your walking into the frig. when it's really hot out. But once it cools o... Read more

The quilt is finally all one piece. Now to decide if I want to add borders or just put the binding on. I'm leaning towards just putting on the binding but since I have lunch with the guild ladies tomorrow I'll see what they think too. Right n... Read more
A Boost I needed

My special Spark Friends have come thru and given me energy to finish this quilt. I was beginning to think I should just shove it in a box but it needs to be finished just because it's so different and fun. I made row 9 (not even started this ... Read more
