Happy November 1st!

Long Time No Blog!!!

I'm checking in to see how everyone is doing and praying that those of you who live on the on the East Coast are safe , and recovering, from the horrific storm, Sandy.

I've been off the blog for almost two months. Sometimes life gets in the way of sitting at the computer but I've checked in with your blogs but have not always commented. I think things are finally slowing down and I will be back in full swing soon!

I have been taking a quilting class and will be putting the binding on next Monday! I have sewn for many years and have admired the art of quilting but did not realize how different making a quilt would be from sewing with a pattern. Oh, Silly Me!!!!

Here is my first project before I added the border.

I have gained a whole new respect for anyone who quilts......

I have ruined fabric while trying to learn to read the RULER!
I have worn my seam ripper to a dull point!
I have cried tears of frustration!
I have cussed the sewing machine when IT didn't sew a 1/4 inch seam!!

But I have worked through the problems,
Learned so much from my two instructors,
And did not give up..even when I wanted to throw my sewing machine out the window!

Hopefully I will be able to show you the completed quilt next week!



  1. Lovelovelove it! Birdie taught herself to quilt while she was working on her masters in Texas. She gets that from my mother who can quilt. Me? I'm a quilter wanna be. And it looks like I'm going to stay that way. I really love what you did! The pattern, the colors, everything!

  2. Glad you are doing well. I have been wondering about you. The quilt is beautiful.

  3. I feel the long time no blog feeling. It's been almost 2 months since my last post.

  4. Glad to see you are well... Quilt is beautiful! Sandy really took it's toll in my neck of the woods. This is my first day in about a month to catch up on some blogs. Taking a much needed cleaning / lugging break
