I've heard this several times...most quilters would have to live to 257 in order to complete what they have. That does not include what you will add to your pile. I've always thought I needed several lifetimes since I started quilting and my h... Read more

My BFF has asked me to embroider on a dozen tea towels and get them back to her by Xmas. Decided I better start on those today since I'm snowed in. We only got 5 or 6" so it wasn't so bad but up in the cities they got twice that. Anyway I too... Read more
Spam is so annoying
Tuesday, November 26, 2019      6 comments

Since I got home from town about noon my phone started ringing and it rang every half hour or so from the same spammer. Trying to tell me my apple device was compromised. I even hit the button once and ask the guy that answered the phone "WHAT... Read more

Just Doing my Thing
Saturday, November 23, 2019      5 comments

Worked on one of the wedding quilts for my friend and cleaned in the kitchen. That was about all my energy. Sure found lots of things to throw away in that kitchen. I think tomorrow I'm going to take the short ladder in there and clear off th... Read more

Of course without a sleeping pill or the drugs for my restless legs it was not a good night. I did sleep really good from 4am until 8. Just a short night but at least i slept some. Got my hair done and cut then stopped and picked up the mail ... Read more
Off on an idea again
Thursday, November 21, 2019      4 comments

I should stop getting ideas. Today it caused a lot of seam ripping out and an idea for a really fun Christmas quilt. This is actually a pattern for a Christmas card holder. But I left the big pocket off the bottom and decided I'd much rather ... Read more
Normal
Wednesday, November 20, 2019      5 comments

Can't really say if today was normal or just a plain old day. I did get the sewing foot onto the embroidery machine and did sew with it. Also did another block for the Christmas tree hanging on the smaller machine and besides that nothing much... Read more

One of them is talking on the phone until late at night and then trying to sleep. An old friend called about 9:30 last night and we talked until almost midnight. It was very nice to talk with her and hear about her kids and grands and all that... Read more
Thinking vs. Doing
Monday, November 18, 2019      4 comments

My head gets stuck on this one. Sometimes I know I should do things but they can always wait for another day. It might be time to do more doing instead of thinking. I did finish one of my row by rows today. Haven't decided if it will be a ta... Read more

I did fiddle around the house. Just picked up and finally emptied the Chewey box that came the other day. Now I can tear it down and get rid of it. They are such sturdy boxes. I did work on my row by row veggie piece today but not much else ... Read more

Spunky Interesting Word
Friday, November 15, 2019      8 comments

Someone at block class called me spunky today. I don't think I've heard that word in a very long time. I keep trying to decided if I remembered to say Thank You. It is not always something remember to do when I get a complement mostly because... Read more

I did stay home all day and I finished one of those baby quilts that has been a top for weeks and needed it's back and binding. But every time I sat down in front of the TV seems something would remind me of someone I've lost. Even my th... Read more
