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!
