Still Plugging Along

I know that I haven’t been doing any blogging, but I have been sewing and quilting. Nothing too exciting, but something. For example: Another round on the second Rosette 2 for La Passacaglia is now complete.  And I made this month’s Saturday Sampler block – it is the third of the blue corner blocks. I …

Memorial Day Sew-In Success

I thought there was a chance that I might not even get to join in on the Memorial Day Sew-In on Twitter due to a hectic week or two of travel and visitors, but, not only did I get to sew on Memorial Day itself, but I also got a very good start on putting …

Ridiculous Fabric Purchases

Look at what I finally got on the quilting frame! Yep, it’s this one:

So I let nine days go by without posting! Even after promising myself that I would get more regular here. Sigh. This week the church quilt got its borders, got marked and got layered. Today or tomorrow it will make its way onto the frame and I’ll take a picture of it to post here. …

Quick Question

Am I very terrible if I take today to get the next hand quilting project of my own (FQS 2009 Designer Mystery BOM) pressed, layered and on the frame instead of working on the church top? (Look at me avoiding the church top!) I really would like to have something of my own available so …
