New Blog

I am in a new place :-)

For those that I am not in an associated quilt group you can already find me....

For those I am not in a quilt group with you can now find me on facebook in a group called Quilting Together.  Some lovely ladies on there.  Come on and join if you like.

Move to a new area

Facebook has a group called quilting friends or something like that and most of my quilt buddies and a few I don't know are on there so I may move myself over to that spot for now.

May be time to end the blog

I am just so frustrated with this blog sight and as much as I wanted to get back in the swing of it I may need to just delete and move on to something else.

I cannot post comments to my friends.
Now I cannot even post photos unless I download an ap and use my phone OR send my photos through some website to load here.

Just too much of a waste of my time.

So my friends..........it's been lovely but I am done with this crappy site.  It has been nothing but a headache for so long.  I may just swing over to another site and use that to store my photos.  Tipod or something like that I think it's called.

A new year and more projects

First to my friends on here I  STILL cannot post comments on those that have their blogs monitored.  I type the 2 words in as it shows and after about 5 tries I just give up.  Too aggrivating and no one else seems to have this problem.

Anyway BEAUTIFUL work is all I can say about what I am seeing.  You ladies do stunning work.

I have completed a few projects.  Just the tops on two though I do need to get the Bengals baby quilt quilted and soon so I plan to sandwich it and get it on the frame.  The star I am in no hurry for.  The bamboo quilt is something I just made to throw over my shoulders in bed at night when I read and the weather is chilly.  I didn't have enough of the yarn to make a larger afghan and it's too pricey to purchase more of.

December 2012

Another few months have passed and I have nothing posted, however I do have a few finished projects.  Just have not had the time to get a post on here but will take care of the over the next few weeks.

The month started out sadly, my mother passed away December 1st after almost 3 years of battling cancer.  Sadly it was not the cancer that was the issue, it was, as with most, the side affects of all the treatment.  She went into kidney and cardiac failure.  She was not producing much urine at all and her blood pressure could not be kept stable without massive doses of some pretty toxic medications.

She decided last Saturday at 2:30am she just could not take it any longer.  I, along with so many that loved her, remained by her side until the end.  She wanted to see Christmas, I would say she will see it in vivid color.

One never knows how much you will miss someone until they are gone.   It's true, so very true.

So, anyway, I doubt I will get much accomplished this month as it's almost over and it just started, as well as with 2 toddler roaming the house it's hard to find that "me time" to quilt unless I pack up and leave for the day (or weekend) which is always nice because that means time with friends

Ok I must be blind

Ok I must be blind.  I just tried posting to other dashboards and those irritating boxes that you have to type in to prove you are not a robot still is not working for me.

So to all my blogger friends, I am up to date on reading and admiring but after trying, yet again, to repeatedly type in those "words" just to be told it didn't work is on my ever loving last nerve.  I have been doing this for YEARS with no issues and all of a sudden it does not work????????? 

Can you tell my frustrations???????????  I can read the words but it tells me I am not enterint them correctly..............REALLY????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

So I love all the posts.  I love seeing what everyone is up to.  I just can't tell you because the blocks are too strong for some reason.  All I know is I am done trying because I seem to be the only one having the issue.

One UFO Completed...yeah

Most of you know the story about my son's injury Feburary 2010...Super Bowl Sunday and his year and a half long recovery.  He was in and out of the hospital numerous times for infections and numerous surgeries.  During the many, many hours spent there I tried to take a quilt project with me to work on but sometimes, depending on how he was feeling, I needed to be up and out of my chair to tend to him in about 30 seconds, which we all know is not enough time to carefully place needes and pins. 

So I took up yarn work again.  I needed something for my hands to do during that time.  Crochet is alot easier to drop at a moments notice.  I started the afghan pictured below.  It was tossed in the closet over the spring and summer because so many other things needed tending to and life got busy.  Things have slowed down so I rescued the project from the closet and it is now completed.  During the time in the hospital my son's girlfriend commented on how pretty it was.  I really had no plans for the completed item so I am thinking it will be a Christmas gift for her.  Money will be tight because of the past year and a half so I need to be smart about gift giving this year.  I think she will love it.

So that means one gift down...yeah!!!!
